We’re Kate and Michael. Well, I’m Kate and he’s Michael. We’ve given up our jobs temporarily (possibly? Well. Okay. We’ve definitely only given our jobs up temporarily or Michael’s manager has promised to come and find us… And I haven’t been forced to say that by anyone. Nope. ;) ) and are off on a 5 month trip to South America, taking in Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay (maybe), Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and Colombia. This blog is to document our trip and will probably contain lots of stream-of-consciousness writing (with lots of parentheses) and getting excited about animals (by me, Kate) and excellent photographs (by Michael). I’m usually a proper itinerary sort of girl… This tiny map is all I’ve got for this trip. I’m attempting not to be freaked out about this!
