How to summarise our time in the diverse, complex continent that is South America? A rollercoaster? Definitely an adventure. Consider our eyes - and other orifices - opened as today we discuss the Latino south.  In this episode, we talk about our three-month journey through South America; in Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, and Peru - including our spontaneous wedding in South America’s poorest country, smugglers on a bus, and almost dying at Machu Picchu (click bait…? Only if you consider being horrifically sick hyperbolic).  It’s been hard to reconcile our South America experience that was super challenging and didn’t live up to expectations but we’ve come to a realisation, which we discuss in the show.  At Ecolust Podcast, we tell stories to empower your sustainable lifestyle.  As Australian millennials, we want full lives and we like nice things.
