I’ve quit my job and I’m riding my motorcycle to Argentina. My journey will start August 15th.
I’ve been planning this for over a year, but haven’t been able to talk about it due to my employers knowing about my blog. I spent months thinking about this trip. Calculating the miles, the number of countries, minimizing the risks, doing the research and with the departure day growing really close there’s a mixture of anxiety and excitement swirling around in my head.
My calculated estimates tell me that I can afford to be on the road for 6 to 8 months, but they are just that: estimates. I don’t really know what will unfold from the journey. Realistically I think I will be gone for 3 months if I’m rushing too much or 12 if I am really enjoying myself. Hopefully it’s the latter.
Here is my general route I plan on taking:
Maybe I’ll hate this whole thing and turn around after 2 months. Maybe it won’t be as spectacular as I’ve built it up in my head. Expectations have a way to leading towards disappointment, but now I’m kinda just trying to go with the flow and just look forward a week in advance instead of months.
I’ve really enjoyed engaging with all of you who have been following this blog since I started it about two years ago. Thanks for being my virtual traveling companions while I’m out on the road.
I hope you enjoy what’s coming next.
