6 Best South American Experiences in 6 months on a budget Kristy (a recent inhabitant of Marlborough) and partner Jarryd chucked in their typical Western lifestyle for an adventure, opting to journey to exotic lands and lead a newly nomadic lifestyle, starting with a one-way ticket to Hawaii. Here are their top 6 experiences not to be missed. 1. Sunrise Lava Boat Tour, Hawaii One of the most spectacular sights we have ever seen is lava exploding underneath a full moon and flowing like a waterfall into the ocean. We got close enough to the lava flow from Kilauea Volcano to feel the heat on our faces and hear the sizzling and cracking, along with the occasional booming explosion. It was absolutely mesmerising. 2. Machu Picchu, Peru When you visit Peru’s most famous site, it is easy to see why this is one of the most popular destinations in the world. This ancient city, built in the 15th century, is believed to have been a royal or religious site for the Inca leaders. Made up of houses, plazas, temples, tombs, stairways, canals and terraced fields, the complex not only makes clever use of the land, but everything is also masterfully connected to each other and to the natural environment. Excellent technical skill and architectural precision would have been required to build such a city. And it is absolutely breathtaking to see in person. The famous path gets booked out more than six months in advance. However, there are alternative trails that will also take you to the famous Lost City of the Incas. We did the Salkantay Trek over five days, taking in spectacular snow-capped mountain vistas and lush green rainforest. We even got to stay in our own private glass igloo under the stars. 3.
