Summer has suddenly come to an end as the humidity recedes and the soft cool breeze of autumn blows in to send us off on our new adventure. When thoughts of our South American travels were but mere thoughts, September felt like a distant echo. We both could hear it, sense its inevitable crawl through the lines of time yet inexplicably it seemed abstract and intangible. Well September has indeed come, bringing those surges of excitement that if you've ever embarked on a journey- whether physically or mentally, you know what I'm talking about. It's the excitement of the unknown, the delicious possibilities that even the most mundane tasks of daily life may and could bring from taking a bus, buying an apple, or simply smiling at a stranger. A journey is different from taking a holiday in that a holiday allows a temporary escape from life whereas a journey changes life as you know it. This is our three month journey through a small sliver of South America beginning in Columbia and ending in Chile. While Adam and I are both ridiculously inept in keeping up on the technological bandwagon, travel blogging seems to provide an easy way to share our travel experiences with our friends and family while also appearing to look extra cool as "bloggers"- whatever that means. So here we be, we invite you to journey with us in spirit and to lose yourself a bit in our wonderings.
