Waterfalls, Drug Smugglers and a Tropical Island

A big part of traveling is flying and the experiences that come with the process. Everyone has their own `long and awful` flight story that they love to tell.

It is hard to describe the feelings one has when arriving in South America, on your own, with a massive bag and only an address written on a piece of paper.
