It’s under a week to go (3 days to be precise, yay! ) and then we are leaving to fly to the other side of the world where we will start our very first adventure cycling trip. 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 our Americas trip page.
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, Facebook and Instagram (@unscriptedride – link at the bottom of the page) posts will soon become more interesting and frequent. Watch this space.
