Starting my trip around the world on 18 December 2016 I flew to Montevideo to prepare for the arrival of the car and to explore the town. Susequently I crossed the Rio La Plata, stayed a few days in Buenos Aires and later to visit the world-famous Iguazu waterfalls located in the triangle formed by Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay.
On 31 Dec 2016 together with a friend (Franz) I set off for Patagonia travelling both, the Ruta 40 (Argentina) and the Carretera Austral (Chile). End of January 2017 I continued alone further south travelling through Terra del Fuego. In February I started driving north using the Ruta Nacional 3 following the Atlantic Coast visiting various national parks. Mid-February I turned West visiting Piedra Parada and el Bolson.
After spending a week in Bariloche / Argentina I crossed the boarder again and travelled through South-Central Chile before returning another time to Argentina. where it ravelled the provinces Mendoza, San Juan, Cordoba, La Rioja, the Puna Region and the Calchaquies Valley (North-west Argentina). During May I 2017 crossed Northern Chile / Atacama Desert from where I continued in June 2017 travelling through southern Bolivia.
After a three-month break I resumed travelling in September 2017 moving through North-West Bolivia. In October 2017 my girlfriend Ursula Forster joined me for the trip and together we travelled three months through Peru and Ecuador. During this time we climbed several mountains, visited the Amazonas jungle, the Galapagos Islands and some of the major historical excavations and cultural sites.
February 2018 is spent in the Caribbean visiting Grenada and Trinidad & Tobago before taking a month's break in Austria.
End of March I resumed my travel and I will drive from Columbia to Guatemala.
