And so it begins…or it will in several days

Hey friends!  Well, I decided to do it – no, not settle down and get a full time job: start a travel journal!  I won’t promise to update it every so many days, but I will promise to update it when I can and make it as interesting as possible!  So here goes my first entry:

As many of you know, I’m heading to South America on Tuesday!  If you didn’t know, now you do.  Where am I going?  I’ll be traveling around southern Chile and Argentina, mainly in the Patagonia area.  What will I be doing?  Who knows!  But honestly, I’ll be taking a 5 day Spanish course in Argentina, traveling, meeting interesting people, and hopefully climbing, backpacking, and volunteering on a farm or at a hostel.    I purposefully did not plan a lot for this trip, so my plan is to go wherever the wind blows me (cliche, I know).

To say I am excited is an understatement, I am SO INCREDIBLY PSYCHED!  Luckily, I have many amazing friends who have either already traveled to this area, or just have experience traveling in general, and have aquired numerous helpful pieces of advice.  So thank you to my friends and family who have been helpful, supportive, and excited for me, I am a lucky lucky girl to have you around.  So here’s to new adventures and hopefully some good stories to come!
