South America is a huge continent with huge appeal. And, as we discovered on previous cruises around Cape Horn, South America’s also a nature-lover’s dream – offering vast ocean landscapes … a kaleidoscope of unspoiled beauty … wall-to-wall plant-life, birdlife and wildlife … mist-shrouded islands … seductive cities … outpost towns … and more.

We’ve had a BALL in the past – which is why we’re SOOOO excited to be doing it all again. And, as happened before, our fabulous itinerary includes the awe-inspiring Iguazu Falls (plunging precipitously over Garganta del Diablo, the ‘Devil’s Throat’) … and the Lost City of the Incas: ever-mysterious Machu Picchu (perched 2300 metres high in the Peruvian Andes, on top of a teetering mountain).

MIDLIFE MADNESS IN SOUTH AMERICA – that’s what we’re gonna enjoy, from elegant Santiago (in Chile) to glamorous Buenos Aires (in Argentina). We fly out next Monday, March 6 … and this unique combination of luxury-at-sea and discovery-on-shore promises to be simply fantastic!

We’ll add some fresh ‘posts’ once this adventure’s actually underway (time and internet permitting) – and include some award-winning pix. However, right now, I can’t stop – I’ve still got things to do, places to go, people to see, lists to tick, and MOUNTAINS of stuff to cram into one small suitcase.

But please stay tuned, and don’t go away. This trip’s gonna be FUN …

Yours bloggedly – JOHN
