“After a hectic week doing the last round of preparations, organising the fund raising, catching up with friends and family, hosting my farewell drink, and cramming some last minute spanish lessons, the time has finally come. Although I’m not particularly looking forward to the 30hrs flights including multiple transits 😦 , curiosity and anticipation of what’s on the other side kept my spirit up.
We are departing tonight on a CX flight to LA (thanks to our high flying banking jobs, our accumulated miles has allowed us to redeem business class for the 14hr long haul!), then transit with Copa air to Panama, then to Quito Ecuador, where it will mark our first stop in our long journey of the South American wonders to come.
Last struggle of the day was trying to fit my next 6 or so months’ life into one single baggage, harder said and even harder to do! After CAREFUL selection of the life essentials, everything inside that bag will become my biggest assets in the months to come!”
