After a month and a half of traveling across America and all over the east coast together, Kyle is heading back to Vermont today and I'm staying here in New Jersey so that we can both spend time with our families before shipping out to Latin America. We keep thinking of more and more things we have to take care of everyday (although, they do tend to be the same things we've written on countless lists - we just need to get them done!) such as purchasing our travel insurance, figuring out what we're going to pack, setting up an international cell phone (for emergencies), etc, etc. It'll all get done, slowly but surely.
It's still all too surreal that this trip is actually happening. After 11 months of dreaming, researching, and saving, we're finally leaving in just under three weeks. Eek!!
I've never traveled as a backpacker before, let alone in Central and South America. I'm sure computers with internet will be readily available at the hostels we'll stay at in big cities but I'm still not sure how often we'll be able to blog. Friends - please check back regularly for updates!
