About my Adventure

I am 29 years old and I work in the product department of a small travel company. A few weeks ago I handed in my notice to go travelling to South America. For reasons I am not entirely convinced aren’t egotistical, I have decided to keep a blog to document my deeds in the hope that someone, somewhere might find it interesting.

Why South America? Because I haven’t been there chiefly: it seemed the right time to rectify that fact. People who travel, and I mean really travel, often talk about getting ‘itchy feet’. Not to be mistaken with a fungal foot infection, this is when your brain tells you it’s time to move on, to see some more of the world, to expand those proverbial horizons.

Now also seems a good time to go. The economies of the worlds global superpowers are in a slow march to meltdown, the price of everything is rising… at this rate it won’t be long until we’re all clad in hessian sacks, eating soil, and worshipping the sun again.

Now you may say I’m shirking responsibility, that I’m foolish to be leaving my job at a difficult economic time, that I’m putting off a possible career to swan around for 5 months south of the equator.

I say: To South America!!!
