Danilo G. Casacurta (Dan)
Artist | Student | Digital Art
Brazil
I am a Design student currently working at IBM not doing what I meant to do. I love to explore new possibilities and try anything whenever it's possible. Keen on minimalist interfaces and stuff, typography, photography and digital art (and pretty much everything else if matches what I like, so yeah).

On my way to become a backpacker.
Interests
Basically I'm going to tell what I will be doing in the next few years ahead.

[2013]
Firstly, I'm leaving IBM on the end of the first semester of 2013, leaving me some time to finish stuff and start preparing myself for the trip.

[Preparation]
It will be a lot of exercising and less eating (not that I'm fat, but I will have to get as thin as I can and see how much time I can survive with minimum food). I will be studying fauna and flora and some historical facts from the countries all over South America. Get some training on protecting myself (body and mind).

[The Trip]
It will be next to the end of 2013, I will backpack through South America. It will be probably me, my camera that I will buy (a really good one) and my huge-ass backpack.
Refer to this map now: www.mapsharing.org/MS-maps/map…
Right now, the closest place to me is So Paulo (southeast), I will start going south first, passing through three Brazilian states (south region, the best one) and finally reach Uruguay where I imagine I will spend a little time since I still do not have much information for it (just the best meat on Earth!). Next I would go to Argentina, Buenos Aires, there I would spend a good time since I want to get into
a lot of museums and lectures, and stuff. Then go south of Argentina, it will be the roughest part I believe since it's a desert, the driest on Earth. I will try to reach the bottom of South America. Less details now, after reaching "Rio Gallegos" (hey, it has my second name!) I would starting going back, NOT home, but north again, straight to Chile.
Then it would be Chile > Paraguay > Bolivia > Peru (Macchu Picchu!) > Ecuador.
Not going to Colombia, it's really dangerous in there. This is the final steps of my journey, I would start going back to Brazil from the North to Northeast and starting going South until I reach my city. Ta-da! (if you didn't get something, tell me and I will explain).

[Facts]
- I will study a lot and have every essential thing on my backpack.
- I probably won't be alone all the time, there are LOTS of people who do that, and MAYBE a friend of mine will go.
- It will last 1 year and 6 months to two years, I don't want more or less than that.
- My Spanish is poor, but since Portuguese is really close to it, I won't have much trouble learning it.
- I will have a really good camera with me all the time, so expect some amazing pictures in the future! (If I'm not robbed)
- It will be mostly on foot and taking lifts, sometimes I imagine I will have to spend days in the wild, getting food out of it and enjoying life as it could have been in the past.
- I will try NOT to die, but my chances have never been so high.
- I will be sleeping in hostels all across the continent, meeting every kind of people.
- I got a nice quantity of money, but I have no problem in working in a place for a month or so just to pay off debts and go on with my trip.

[Insanity]
Not at all, I can't remember the first time I said I would go into the wild, but it has always been in my veins and I feel that now is the right time to do it. If people say that I'm wasting my time doing it, they are just ignorant, I don't know how I will get my parents to understand it (I will tell them like 5 months before I go) but all I want in my life is this trip.
In my daily life, I have no wish for new stuff, I don't remember the last time I bought something that was not food. I just want to grab the most of what life can offer, and understand it, understand myself, feel the essence of life.

[Credits]
Watch "Into the Wild" and you will have an image of what I will be doing, of course mine will be much more dangerous.
