01 December 2013
We've told our families, our friends, and our jobs, and all that's left is to say it on the blog - we're leaving London to cycle around South America!
We've been talking about taking a long trip for quite some time, but of course it never seemed like the right time. It still doesn't, but we've decided to do it anyway. We've decided to leave London for good, and it just made sense to take a trip before we settle down again somewhere new.
We leave London on Tuesday, although you wouldn't know it by looking at the state of our packing. We'll be spending December with our families in Madrid and Philly before flying to Quito, Ecuador in January 2014.
We plan to head towards Ushuaia but don't have much of a fixed route at the moment. We'll see when we get there. We have no return flights either but we're planning to be away for roughly a year.
This is of course equal parts terrifying and exhilarating, and now that we can talk about it on the internet we'll be sure to share more with you as we get ready to step off this cliff!
