Inca Trail: Check. Another bucket list item completed. Spent 4 days and 3 nights completing the Inca trail with some great new friends. Only open this email if you want some laughs, information and some epic photos of the scenery in Peru!
The "W" trek is one of the most popular hikes in Patagonia. There are several different ways that the W can be done directional and time wise, but this is the way I found to be the most enjoyable (but I am biased). If you are thinking of heading to Torres del Paine, feel free to shoot me any questions!
An American, an Aussie, a Kiwi and a Brit walk into a national park, no it's not a joke. We just completed a 5 day and 4 night trek through Patagonia on the famous "W" trek! 83 miles and one smelly pair of shoes later, I'm back to crappy internet connection. Find out what I think the best part of traveling in this blog post! Stay Wild!
I'm leaving in 68 days. SIXTY-EIGHT!
I've caught on that a lot of people think that what I am doing now (galavanting around the western USA), is the reason that I started this blog. No doubt it is part of the process, but I have much bigger plans. The reality is I am leaving December 15th for one YEAR, yes, YEAR (maybe 2, don't tell mom). December 15th I fly to Argentina, then a few days later I fly further south to hop on a cruise ship to Antarctica. That is my first huge travel landmark of the trip as it marks the completion of visiting all 7 continents, very possibly before my 28th birthday, but I digress. I'll be making my way through South America couch surfing, hosteling, eco-hoteling, and maybe even some home-stays if they come about. Then back to the states in April for a few days to wed my friends in California (Yes, I am ordained lol). Then off to the -lands, Iceland, Finland, Ireland Scotland etc and down into Europe and Asia. Thinking of taking a vacation? I would absolutely love it if you guys came and traveled with me for any portion. Located elsewhere? I would love to meet up there as well!
Getting ready for this trip has been a cleansing rollercoaster of emotion. The last two months have been a slew of donations to Goodwill and spreading some of my worthwhile valuables to family and friends for "safe-keeping" (we will see about that). Last week, I sold my Audi, the first car that I bought and paid off for myself. I'm learning more and more about myself and what really matters every single day. Getting down to a backpack is becoming way more of a reality.
I want to take this moment to again so thank you for reading. Please go to the main page and subscribe, you will only get an email when I write a post and it makes the blog into work horse that can open many doors abroad!
