|This is just a place I store my plans. Mainly
because planning is not all, vacation is a big part of the gig. And
weather and general possibilities too. I wanted to see
Uruguay and Paraguay
while the Danish winter made Denmark so unsuitable for living. Unfortunately, this
central South American countries do receive the major part of their rain in
this season, and roads might disrepair - along with the sun. Well, the
western costal part of Peru is bone dry any time of year.|
The major Plan B was the northern coast of the same continent. For many years, I have been wanting to explore Guyana, and why not the countries around it? Here are the great Colombia, Venezuela, Trinidad & Tobago, Suriname and Guiana.
Realising most of this vast area is only accessible by boat, I have tried to find the most astonishing nature, still within reach from the few roads, but I will also explore the interior by boats.
It turned out the weather, flights, border crossings and safety in Venezuela do cause some challenges. Apparently, the border between Venezuela and Guyana is sealed. The rainy season can make travelling in-between areas - and countries impossible, and I ended up with a bit of an odd plan, allowing me to travel at least some of the areas, in their drier seasons.
