Backpacking Begins

September 1st, it's a special and memorable date for me and my partner Craig. It's the date that we flew to Beijing in 2011 to embark upon eight months of travel. We chose the exact same date to fly to Rio de Janeiro where - as I'm writing this - we have just enjoyed our first full day.

Our travels are open ended and fairly unplanned, we hope to be on the road for a year and would like to see most of the South American countries before moving on to another continent or home depending on our financial situation.  

This journal will be used to record this journey, place by place or week by week depending on Internet access and time. I hope you will follow along.
