All things start somewhere……

February 14, 2011

Well, all things have to start somewhere and this is the start of the next two years of our lives. We’re quitting our jobs, packing up our home and leaving the bright lights of London to head off on what will hopefully be, a real adventure… or what could just as easily be a complete disaster!

On the wrong side of 35, we felt it was time to kick back and have some fun, we’ve worked hard, now it’s time to play hard.  Oh and by the way, “we” in case you are wondering, are Mark and Sarah, an English husband and a Welsh wife, surprisingly a winning combination, just don’t mention the rugby!

The plan is to drive the length of the Americas from the tip of Alaska to the southern most tip of Argentina, but in order to get there we have to start in Canada by shipping our ‘new home’ to Halifax on the east coast and heading North west before hitting Prudhoe Bay in Alaska and then turning around.  We’ll end up in Ushuaia, with a cheeky trip to the Antartic before heading back up North to Buenos Aries and heading home – or going on – who knows.

With a bit of luck we’ll be off in June 2011 and expect to take at least 18 months. That makes home around the end of 2012/ beginning of 2013.  Gutted to be missing the Olympics in London but we figured the trip should be worth it.  There’s still 4 months until we go but the amount of planning and organisation it takes is huge, so we decided to start blogging now and share the trials and tribulations of our epic journey or unbearable slog.  Fingers crossed!
