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.
