I'm starting to write this first entry while our feet are firmly on British soil and enjoying the beginning of a beautiful British summer. It's easy to think twice about why we're upping sticks when the weather is so good here. Summer has just arrived but unfortunately we are about to fly into Winter and chase it for the next 6 months before seeing Spring again let alone Summer (thank goodness we like skiing!)
We are pretty much packed and ready to go but with one day spare still where everything has the opportunity to go wrong
For those who have not heard the plans yet our current route (subject to change) is:
June - Arrive in Rio, join a Tucan Travel backpacker tour bus for two months that will take us around South America through Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, Bolivia and Peru. Then we make our own way from Lima to Santiago.
August - Fly from Chile to New Zealand where we have working visas and plan to work for approximately 5 months around Queenstown (hopefully catching the ski season).
March - Fly to Sydney and spend a month enjoying the sights of the country with a refreshed budget
April - Fly to Singapore and spend two months traveling overland around Asia before flying out of Thailand in June 2010.
It's making me feel pretty tired thinking about it!
Well I've obviously written far too much already considering nothing has even happened yet so better give the keyboard a rest for now in anticipation of a lot more to come...
See you on the road,
Amy and Steve
P.s Not that I know all the various functions of this site but its worth having a look around as I think you can set up email alerts for when we add new blogs and comment on posts that we write. In particular my favorite function is the map illustrations so you get a free geography lesson every time you get an update (and a far more accurate one than listening to me explain where countries are!)
