The site is live! This is the first post! How Exciting! This is our travel blog.
On the 8th of February 2011 we are boarding an 11 hour and 40 minute flight to Rio De Janeiro in Brazil. This will be the start of an amazing journey, taking us thousands of miles through South America, ending in Santiago, Chile, and then continuing on to New Zealand and Australia.
We could have chosen the easy route, and purchased a guided package all in one trip, but we decided against it, and instead, we have a ticket in, and a ticket out and nothing else. Whether this was a good idea or not, well, only time can tell, but what ever happens we will almost definitely have plenty of interesting, funny, and hopefully not, but quite possibly scary stories and tales to tell.
The primary aim of this blog is to keep our family and friends updated, but I also hope that it will become a useful resource for people thinking of doing something similar, and an interesting read for those who are just generally interested travel, culture, or who think that following 3 teenage boys on a crazy adventure might be a laugh!
