So after months of planning the day has come that we pack our bags again and are off to a new adventure. This time it is not to settle at a new place, it is to complete our dream of traveling the world together. Of course it is not always easy to say goodbye to the people you love, the apartment and jobs you really enjoyed and leave into the insecurity of not knowing what lies ahead. Will everything work out as planned? Will we be able to spend as little money as possible and not run out of cash? Well, there are things you can influence in life and other things you just have to take as they come, so with our positive attitudes we leave Chile and are sure we’ll get to meet amazing people, see beautiful places and come back with experiences we will never forget.
This is not going to be your usual travel blog where we only write about the places we see. Since we really got into sustainability, animal welfare and ocean conservation we are planning to get to know exciting projects in these areas and conduct interviews with experts in their fields. For a while now, we are vegetarians, but learning more and more about industrial animal farming, the dairy industry and their consequences for the environment, so we are planning to live a sustainable lifestyle and we’ll also share our thoughts on these topics with you. We hope that all of you are going to read our articles with an open mind and are going to understand why we decided to live our lives this way, just as we accept the ways you live yours.
So back to traveling. Our first destination is Toronto where we will be spending two weeks with our families in the city, in Whitby as well as in Ajax. It is going to be really exciting to see Ontario in summer and hopefully we will have a lot of sunny days to enjoy the outdoors. If anybody has projects in mind that could interest us, or knows people who are worth interviewing please let us know.
After Toronto we are going to head to California (and just found out we’re meeting awesome friends from Oxford there!) where we are going to drive from San Diego to San Francisco. We plan to visit Santa Barbara, Sequoia and Yosemite National Park, as well as the Lake Tahoe area.
From San Francisco we are flying to Hawaii where we are going to do a little island hopping for 3 weeks before we head over to Sydney, Australia.
We hope you are going to enjoy our journey as much as we do and please feel free to contact us any time.
Ale and Chris
