You know, that thing. That thing you’ve been day dreaming about for years. That thing that you’ve wished that one day you’d be able to do. That thing that your friends have become somewhat deaf to, since you have been going on and on about it for years, but have never got around to it. Perhaps you’ve been waiting for the right moment. Or maybe you’ve just never pulled your finger out and done something about it.
Well, that thing! It begins on 6 January 2012. Yes, we decided that if we waited until we were truly ready then we’d never get going, so on that date we begin our longest pootle ever, in search of the best tea and cake, and a smattering of adventure along the way.
We have already sold, packed or binned our gubbins and cycled out of the door of our flat. We also had all the vaccinations needed, booked the tickets and packed our panniers.
The plan? Well, after a quick family visit to the Pennines over the festive season we’ll fly out to Ushuaia, Argentina, then aim north for New York, USA, via Lima and Portland, to name but a few places. How long this will take is anyone’s guess. We’ve no date to be home by, so if we get tired and want to hang around in a place for a bit, we’ll do just that. We’ll just see how it goes. We might run out of money, get tired or find a place to explore for longer before we
are back on these shores.
We’ll be updating the blog as and when we can as we make our way northwards. So, it’s hasta la vista for now. We’ll be back. At some point.
