Just a few little things to post here, so I’ll make a bizarre post with all of them!
- The first is that we’re almost there! ALMOST THERE!!! At this point, we are planning to arriving into Ushuaia MONDAY AFTERNOON! If you have any contacts with the local press, please inform them that we’ll be reaching the finish line!
- We’ve had a great stay here in Rio Grande and it looks like the bad weather has passed on. We’ve got bright blue skies today and are hoping for the same tomorrow when we hit the road.
- I’ve got an interview lined up with CNN for this afternoon – will let you know if/when I find out when it will air.
A few months ago, I did an interview with Career Break Secrets. They just reposted the interview now that we’re nearly there. As I read through it, there were a few parts that really stood out – I especially like this part:
What have the boys taught you about travel during the journey?
I think a better question is what haven’t they taught me?? I have learned so much from them – kids make the best travelers! The most important thing I’ve learned from them is to not cry about things that you have no control over – it won’t change anything. When we were in northern Peru, we went through a very tough period. I felt like Peru was beating me down – kicking me and spitting on me and leaving me for dead. I was down, down, down – ready-to-throw-in-the-towel down. One day I was walking the streets of Trujillo with the boys and complaining about everything. Daryl said, “Why bother complaining, Mom? You won’t change anything. All you can do is keep going and it’ll get better eventually.” Such wisdom from a 12-year-old.
