Overland Journey around South America in 2010

Map of Overlands travels around South America in 2010

This map shows my travels on two Dragoman Overland External link opens a new Browser window trucks around South America in 2010. The first truck went from Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil, and travelled clockwise along the indicated route to Quito, in Ecuador. It was not considered advisable to drive through Colombia in 2010, as the route was too dangerous for passengers and truck, so I had to overfly that country. Such a shame, as on my previous visit to Colombia in 1991 I had had a very pleasant time, and met many friendly people.

I spent a few weeks in Quito's old city, avoiding the numerous muggers, then flew to Caracas, in Venezuela, (then the murder capital of the world!) to meet the second truck, which took me from Caracas through Venezuela and Brazil back to Rio de Janeiro, a total trip of about 6 months. I spent a few weeks in Rio, avoiding more muggers, before flying back to Europe.

Many of the images taken on this trip have still to be processed and posted online, but some from this trip are already available here on the GnomePlanet website: check out the gallerys for Argentina, Brazil, and Chile. Watch this space for additional images from Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, and Venezuela, coming shortly.

To see the exact routes taken on each drive day, please visit the South America Daily Route Maps External link opens a new Browser window page on my GPS website. The detailed routes can be superimposed on to a standard Google Map, shaded terrain image, or high-resolution satellite background.
