Before we started the “big trip” we did some short journeys near João Pessoa, in Brazil’s northeast.

The Northeast

We left João Pessoa on March 16th, heading first into the interior of the northeast, then returning to the coast at Maceió.


Coast & Chapada

After Maceió we headed south to Salvador, and then inland to Chapada Diamantina national park, arriving on March 31st.

Minas Gerais

We continued south on April 13th, into the historic cities of Minas Gerais.


Big Cities, and Amazonas

Before returning to the sea, and Brazil’s giant cities, on April 27th. From Rio we took a 10-day detour up north to Manaus, in Amazonas.

Inland to Paraguay

After leaving São Paulo on June 9th we briefly went back to the coast before heading way, way inland, to the Iguazu Falls, and to Paraguay.


South to Uruguay

Returning to Brazil on June 26th, we travelled through huge canyons in Rio Grande do Sul, before crossing into Uruguay, and finally reaching Buenos Aires on July 20th.
