On our way

Bags packed, good-byes said and excitement up

Two years of anticipating this moment and when it finally arrives all goes more smoothly than my imaginings. The kids are excited and positive, James and I are calm and focused. Apart from the mad rush to vacate the motel room when the taxi arrives slightly early, that is. Perhaps we aren’t as calm as we think…

The journey begins in a very civilised fashion with Christmas cocktails at 7.30am in Brisbane and champagne in Auckland. We make some rookie errors – waiting in line for ages to change money into a currency that is not supplied and failing to fill water bottles in the last country supplying fresh, clean, free water. Oh so thirsty in Santiago!
