And so the adventure begins…

I’ve always hated that the days I have the time to sleep my body won’t let me, but today when I woke up early, I wasn’t upset by my internal alarm.  I feel like a kid on Christmas morning, full of excitement and eager for the day ahead.  Even though I won’t land in Buenos Aires until tomorrow, today is the day the adventure starts!  It’s been a rough few weeks and this trip is coming at the perfect time.  I’m ready to unplug for a bit.

Bags are packed and, shockingly, despite needing attire for two climates (mid/high 80s in Buenos Aires and the frigid cold of Antarctica), I was able to fit everything in a carry-on and a small personal item.  Assuming I survive the trip with so few belongings, I’ll share some tips for packing light upon my return.

Anticipating Antarctica

For years visiting all 7 continents has been on my bucket list.  Traveling the world and experiencing new places is something that truly gives me joy.  In less than a week from now, I will be on my way to crossing my last continent – Antarctica – off the list.  I will have visited all 7 continents at 31 years old.  I had hoped to do it before I turned 30, but no complaints! It still seems unreal that I’ll be traveling to a place so few visit, a continent that is so untouched by man.

SEVEN IN THIRTY-ONE will help me document this adventure of a lifetime, so I can recall the details of the experience for years to come.  Subscribe and follow to hear about my upcoming trip to Argentina and Antarctica… and future trips!
