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

About John Cooney

John Cooney and his wife Robyn have enjoyed more than their fair share of travel. They hesitate to call themselves ‘experts’ – but they’ve grabbed every chance that’s come their way to explore new countries, cultures and customs. They’ve had the privilege (both on their own and as the leaders of numerous successful group-tours) to sample many stunning destinations: Europe, the UK, Singapore, Vanuatu, the USA, Israel, Egypt, Africa, Dubai, China, Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. And their recent (and most pleasant) memories are of the places ancient-and-modern that border the Mediterranean. John and Robyn are at-home in airports, hotels, cruise ships, and the like … and they know how to make the most of a unique travel opportunity. Travel, they reckon, is an all-five-senses experience – a chance to see, feel, smell, hear and taste the world. And they’ve done it often enough to know for sure: sightseeing with a group of laid-back Kiwis is DOUBLE the fun – lots of laughs, great company, and memories that last forever!
