6 months into our trip!
On Friday, March 13, our friend Alan dropped us off at the US boarder just south of San Diego…and we walked into Tijuana. We were scared, nervous, bewildered, and any number of other adjectives that one can use to describe confusion and fear of the unknown. But we were excited too. The world awaited and our time had come to go out and discover it.
Six months is significant for one reason and one reason only. It was our minimum. Six months was the amount of time we decided we´d force ourselves to meet. Once we´d been gone six months it will have been worth it to quit our jobs and make ourselves homeless. If we came home after six months, well, at least we gave it a good shot.
We´ll be home in November.
But in December we will fly to South Africa where we will begin the famed Cape Town to Cairo overland trek. Sure, we may have to fly over a space here or there but we´re going to Africa and that is exciting in itself.
To tell you the truth though, travelling like this has been hard and we plan to write a couple of posts in the near future talking about that. We are very much looking forward to our trip home to see our friends and family and hope that many more will follow in the footsteps of Poncho and Leah and join us along the way. Most importantly, thank you to all of you who have helped along the way with messages of support and reminisces of home!
