While most people avoid transit when taking flights, we are more than happy to do stop overs.
Transit is a perfectly reasonable excuse to spend some time in new and old beloved places!
After about a year, our Latin America adventure is coming to an end and we must return back home. But wait, where is home now?! Before we started traveling we sold almost everything we had, left our apartment in Dubai, quit our jobs… Where are we supposed to go back now?
We’re starting pretty much from scratch!
First things first, we are about to go visit our families, as it’s been way too long! I will be spending a month in Portugal and Ashray will be staying in India. Afterwards, I shall go to New Delhi too and that is exactly where we will be establishing our home from now on.
Does this mean we will become sedentary and boring?!
NO WAY! India is a perfect getaway to explore Asia (not to mention the country in itself, huge and with such variety, both in terms of landscapes and culturally)! And so we shall be doing!… There’s no stop for us now… The more you travel the more you want to travel. This is truly addictive!
As flying to our respective sides of the world from Bolivia is rather expensive, we came up with a perfect plan! In a few days, we will be flying to Mexico and spending a few days soaking up the sun and dipping ourselves in the blue Pacific waters of Acapulco! Is this cheaper than flying out from Bolivia, you might be thinking? Well, more or less!.. But the other benefits involved in this detour can’t be denied!
But there is more… Flying out from Mexico wasn’t also ideal (what a shame!) so why not go to the USA and head home from there? And who would go to the USA and not spend some time there as well? That would be such a waste, specially considering this is our first time!
So, New York City and Chicago: we will see you soon!
We are SHOCKED at the prices of accommodation in NYC! So, as one of our final destinations, these places are going to make sure to burn the last cents of our travel budget for the past year! Nevertheless, we are very excited to picture ourselves roaming the streets of Manhattan, eating a proper bagel with cream cheese and smoked salmon, attending some artistic events in Brooklyn and going for a Broadway musical, in proper Glee style! I’m loving it already! I am such a sucker for musicals and I barely get to see any live!
And a lot more things that we still have to plan! If you have ideas and recommendations for fun things to do on a budget in NYC, leave us a comment!
After NYC, it’s time for Chicago, where we partnered with Getaway Hostel for some fun times in the city. What’s even more exciting? I’m going to get to see live one of my crush/idols/favorite musicians… Chris Carrabba. Unfortunately, he won’t be performing with his usual band Dashboard Confessional, but I am sure it will be great to see him live with Further Seems Forever too. I truly can’t wait for this! My groupie dreams are coming true!!
So… are you ready to piggy-back ride with us through North America?
Buckle up! There are so many adventures for us to live together coming up!
