We’re looking for new adventure. New perspectives. New cultures. New reasons to gain weight. New cocktails to taste. We’re heading to South America: a land of extreme passion, vibrant colours and explosive flavours!

Some of you may know us from South East Asia Backpacker Magazine where we first dipped our toes in the sea of adventure and became true travel addicts.
So… while half of our team sip fresh coconuts on the shores of South East Asia and continue to create the ever-inspirational S.E.A Backpacker Magazine, the other half head onward to tackle an entirely new backpacking mecca. A place that often draws parallels with South East Asia in terms of the friendliness of its people, diversity of its landscapes and incredible opportunity for adventure!
Join us as we throw ourselves in at the deep end, head into the great unknown and become first-time travellers all over again.
After all – isn’t this what backpacking is all about? The unfamiliar. The not knowing where you will wake up tomorrow. The leaping out of your comfort zone…
Taking in the spirit of the Apus (the Mountain Gods) of the Peruvian highlands…
From the salt flats of Bolivia to the sand dunes of Peru, from the tango clubs of Argentina to the mud volcanoes of Colombia, all the way to the soccer fields of The World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. We’re ready to scale the Andes, trek through the Amazon, indulge in the bountiful options of the sophisticated metropolis cities, dance with a whole cast of new characters, and surf what are bound to be some pretty gnarly waves!
We can’t do any of this without you, as you are and have always been the voice of this publication. This ‘travel diary for everyone’.
So, we want to know – what have been your favorite moments on the road? What have you learned? What place did you stay three weeks longer than expected? What tasty treat should everyone try?
