As the trip grows ever closer, there have obviously been some changes to the plan.
Most exciting is an unexpected addition of a 2-week cruise to Antarctica!! The fates somehow deemed it necessary for me to travel to the mysterious 7th Continent, as I recently received an email from a friend asking if I’d like to go halfsies on a cruise cabin, departing from Buenos Aires on February 1, 2015. As it turns out, I was already going to be in BA on that very date, so there is no way I could turn it down! The universe has decreed it! Also, the fabulous addition of my dear friend Malia Yoshioka as my travel companion has necessitated a few more slight alterations. So! As it now stands!
