Off to South America - From Alaska's North to the Tip of South America travel blog

we will head to each of these places EXCEPT Rio - more...

Our trip is broken up in four sections - Los Angeles to Santiago, Chile then Santiago to Buenos Aires then New Year's Eve until January 7th in Buenos Aires and Uruguay, then Buenos Aires back to Santiago. We originally only planned to go LA to Rio then fly home. But getting a visa for Brazil was a nightmare and so we canceled that section and opted to explore for week while waiting for the ship to return from Rio to Buenos Aires.

Once we found out how expensive airfare home was going to be, we decided to avoid the black out dates by just cruising 11 days longer! By doing that we were able to use our frequent flier miles and get home very cheaply!

We don't speak Spanish but I have Google Translate on my phone and 4 other translation apps plus a handy phrase book. It will be an adventure for us for sure!! I have International texting so we can keep up with the family. Seth is staying at our house for the two months and housesitting for us so that is such a blessing!

So, today begins packing and we fly out in a week.
