Hi everybody, I am planning a backpacking trip through South America. I will start in August 2024 and would like to meet other nature and culture connected people who want to start the tour with me. I am already a year earlier in Paraguay and participate in a research project on biodiversity in the rainforest. If you also want to discover this incredible continent I would be happy to establish contact and possibly then do something together in South America.

Hi, my name is Dee, I work and live in Queens, New York. I like places outside the City, away from traffic and noise. I have planned a getaway to Ecuador for January and February. I already have AIRBNB reservations for mountain country lodging in places around Quito, Ecuador. It will be nice to find some company along the way even if it is for a day or two. You're preferably like myself, humble, open minded, down to earth, likes to listen, likes nature, mountains, lakes, rivers and animals. I like to laugh and to listen to music. I'm not religious but is ok if you are as long as you are not trying to convert me. You're not judgmental, narcissist, loud, raunchy, selfish, materialistic, racist or into hatred and bigotry.
