How to Chase Yourself Through South America

Every now and then you come across a real feel-good video that’ll make you laugh and smile and wish you were on the next flight out of town. Case in point: Ari Fararooy’s “Chasing Myself Around South America.”

The description for his video is particularly fun: In March 2014, “I found myself once again traveling alone, this time on a 3-week backpacking trip around South America. I wanted to do something different with my travel video, so this is what I came up with. I need to make some friends.”

The video, of course, raises the question: why not travel South America alone? Clearly you don’t need friends to have a good time! Ari visits Colombia, Peru, and Bolivia, showing us his journey as he skips his way across grassy mountain meadows, swims in foreign pools, and wraps things up by kicking himself between his legs. Yes, you read that right.

Are you interested in visiting Colombia, Peru, or Bolivia? Even if you’re travelling alone, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have to be alone. Try a hiking tour in Peru, hire a local guide in Brazil, or do some adventure travel in Costa Rica. Hiring a local guide will prove to be one of the most rewarding experiences you’ll have while in South America! And yes, you might even end up with a new friend.
