5. Bring Your Sweet Tooth
In many places in South America, you will be surrounded by delicious cakes, cookies, pastries and candies.
I especially noticed this in Brazil, where it is not uncommon to eat sweets for breakfast.
In fact, at all of the Brazilian hostels I stayed in, treats like chocolate cake with sprinkles and chocolate sandwich cookies were served in the morning.
6. Take A Photography Class
South America is full of surreal and otherworldly landscapes. These beautiful sights include Patagonia, the Uyuni Salt Flats and Iguazu Falls. Scenery like this deserves more than a quick snapshot.
Before your trip, take a photography class to hone your skills.
UDEMY is great for online courses.
If you have the money invest in a professional camera, South America is a great destination to play around and get creative using beautiful landscapes as a backdrop.
One thing to consider though: if sleeping on overnight buses, you’ll want to be really careful with a large camera.
For this reason, I recommend the lightweight and budget-friendly Sony Alpha a6000 (pictured above), or using a higher quality smartphone.
