My friends and I are planning a 45 day backpacking extravaganza for the summer of 2015. We definitely want to see Machu Picchu, Patagonia, lake titicaca, Rio, and Huacachina. Any information that someone could give would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

Thank you. It is nice to meet you. I am looking for anything that anyone can offer! What amount of money should be looking for, how to get visas, what are realistic expectations for what we want to do and how long we have and what kinds of food and clothes should we bring?!
