Day 731!January 13 in Argentina ⋅ ☁️ 28 °C
We have now officially made two years on the road! It is pretty crazy to think about, especially as we often argued over being gone this long and whether we would actually do it. Being away from friends and my parents, the comforts and known of home, always being on the go - all those things were occasionally really hard. Obviously there were so many incredible things about our travels too. So many good memories and experiences.
And then bam, this last year just flew by! Perhaps it was because we had so much time in “easy” places - Australia, New Zealand, all around the US. Or perhaps because we spent most of it being stationary - Chiang Mai for 2 months, Portland for 2 months and Buenos Aires for 5 weeks. Whatever the case, it’s been an amazing two years and I feel so lucky to have had this experience.
And the fun continues! Now we are on a little roadtrip around Salta, the NW region of Argentina where it is high altitude and dry. It looks like Arizona with cactus and beautiful mountains, but they actually have good wine here!
It feels very different here, more like South America than BA where it feels European. The houses are very colonial, the towns are quaint, and the people look more indigenous.
If only there weren’t mosquitoes!Read more
