It’s time – time for that final push to the end of the world. We have a mere 600 kilometers (350 miles) left to pedal; 7 – 10 cycling days left of our journey. We’re taking off today.
We now have tickets home – thanks to Anne, a friend who offered to get them for us using her frequent flier miles. We are so incredibly grateful for her kindness – one more Road Angel who has stepped up and added magic to our journey. We fly out of Buenos Aires on April 3 and will arrive into Boise on April 4. It feels so definite. So finished. Until we had those tickets, it wasn’t quite real. Now it is.
So we’ll push on – taking our time and enjoying these last few days of our adventure. We’ll play and smell the roses. We’re in no hurry.
From here in Rio Gallegos, we’ll first cross the border into Chile about 75 km away. Then a short distance after that, we’ll take a ferry across the Straights of Magellan to the island of Tierra del Fuego. We’re not sure what’s there, but we’ll take plenty of time to see what there is to see.
Time is marching on and April 3 will be here before we know it.
In case you’re wondering… Our future plans include at least a 6-month stay in Boise while we reevaluate and decide what we want to do next. We can, quite literally, do anything – so narrowing it down to only one thing won’t be easy. Our options include:
- Continue traveling
- Stay in Boise forever and ever
- Move to another location – maybe in the USA, maybe other country
- Travel part time – maybe 6 months travel/6 months home? Home base => where?
Sometimes I wish someone would step up and make the decision for us – it would be so much easier!
