Nearly Time To Leave

It’s under a week to go (3 days to be precise) and then we fly to the other side of the world. Feelings range from excitement, nervousness and being totally overwhelmed. Where have the last eight weeks gone?!?

Since returning from our Wales trip we’ve been a bit quiet on the blogging and social media front. Partly because we haven’t told people where to find this blog but also because we’ve actually been really busy with final preparations and spending time with loved ones.

It’s been a crazy five weeks since Wales. We’ve managed to find accommodation for our first two stops in Argentina using Warm Showers (it’s couchsurfing for cycle tourists – see our blog about the Adventure cycle touring festival where we’ve used this before. It’s not as weird as it sounds.). We’ve bought EVERYTHING we could ever need and decided that what we don’t have now isn’t worth getting. We have given the bikes a last once over and done a final pack – if you want to see what we’re taking, with photos and how much it all weighs, read THIS.

It’s all starting to come together now and it’s beginning to feel real. Friends have told us it only really hits you when you’ve been away for two weeks and you realise you aren’t going home. We shall see!

Blog and Instagram posts will soon become more interesting and frequent. Watch this space.

  2. We’re excited for you – setting off on an even bigger adventure than the one we went on earlier this year!… We’re looking forward to following your blog. You’ll definitely need your Gore-Tax jackets in Patagonia!

    1. Thank you very much, I really liked reading the blog from your big adventure so I hope you enjoy ours. Haha yeah, we knew a good Gore-Tex jacket would be needed, especially as I heard that it has just snowed there from the person weโ€™re staying with. I hope Solana is settling in well at school ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Solana is settling into school well, thanks. She is making new friends, seems to like her teachers and is loving the rules! She has been tireder and hungrier than usual though – all this learning and new environment are tiring her out. Probably like travelling in a new country on 2 wheels will do to you! Make sure you stock up on energy with a few big, juicy Argentine steaks and bottles of Malbec whilst you’re in very civilised Buenos Aires. Enjoy.

  3. Have fun keep safe and keep in touch.
    I look forward to seeing pictures of where you are and what you are up to.
    Love Helen xxxxx
