Driving in South America – Quito to Ushuaia road trip

Driving in South America - Ecuador to Ushuaia road trip

Driving in South America I started Driving in South America after having completed several months going through the jungle and up the Amazon River by boat. I decided to change my means of transportation. Why? I bought a car in Quito, Ecuador’s capital. All those months of backpacking, sleeping in hammocks, river boats and piranhas were over. From now on the trip was about road maps, gasoline, car insurance, customs border control, etc… The trip was taken to another dimension. I could now visit more destinations along the way, because when traveling by boat or by bus, I was not able to visit anything in between. Being able to drive enabled me to explore many more places since I could stop whenever I wanted. Indeed the chance of Driving in South America was just the start of a new adventure. The goal now was to get to the city of Ushuaia…

Chankillo, Peru - the 2,300-year-old solar desert observatory

The pre-Columbian history of Peru began about 15,000 years ago, until the times of the Inca civilization. This vigorous and indomitable Inca empire extended beyond Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia and Chile. The end of the Incas arrived with the Spanish colonizers in 1531. A mix of indomitable spirit, lack of serfdom, refusal to external dominance and unexpected death by unknown diseases, brought the unfortunate decimation of these people by the Spaniards. Independence is achieved three centuries later, led by Simon Bolivar – a Venezuelan military leader who was partly responsible for the revolutions against the Spanish empire in South America. Peru has diverse geographical areas that are entirely distinguishable: jungle, beach, tropical, desert, lakes, and mountains over 6000 meters / 19 685 feet high. ⛰ I HAD THE PLEASURE OF VISITING PERU THREE TIMES: from October 26th until November 16th = 24 days from December 29th until January 23rd = 26 days…
