Autumn’s Adventures

I haven’t been updating as much lately because my brain is buzzing with a million different ideas and I haven’t been able to break myself from working on them to work on the blog. I apologize.  I probably don’t even have any followers anymore.  I’m also behind on posting pictures on my Flickr page.  I was good and did manage to get all photos from my 1.5 month travels onto Facebook so if you are friends with me you’ve probably already seen them.

To break it down in short form, this is where I was for 1.5 months and with whom:

  • Cordoba, ARG – 10 days – with pal Bobby Carter
  • Salta, ARG – 6 days – 4 days with Bobby, 2 days with Alexander.
  • Tucuman, ARG – 3 hours – with Alex
  • Rosario, ARG – 2 days – with Alex
  • Buenos Aires, ARG -4 days – 2 days with Alex, 2 days with Alex and Shannon.
  • Colonia, Uruguay – 1 day – with Shannon, Alex, David, Alex’s friend Abe and Abe’s friend Lee.

Of course I had to show Bobby, Alex and Shannon my new digs so they all came to visit me in Jujuy.  I took each of them to the north. I am beginning to be a really great tour guide of my home town!  I really liked seeing how they reacted to the places I took them. It was rewarding for me to show people new things.  Jujuy is a place of reflection and relaxation and I think I relayed that quite well to my friends.  They enjoyed a break from reality.

Now I am wiped out.  I’m happy to be done with traveling and back to working and a regular routine of yoga and the gym twice a week.  I’m not the type that enjoys living out of a suitcase for sure.  Since returning to Jujuy I have been a major hermit.  I stayed in my pjs and in my room for almost 2 days and 2 nights straight. I think the woman I live with thinks this behavior is a bit strange but I tried to explain it to her as best as I could that  I needed a super detox from all of that socializing and traveling — I needed to reconnect with myself!

Also, hanging out with Bobby, Alex and Shannon was really inspiring.  We talked about so many different things and I came away from those conversations with such great ideas that I couldn’t wait to get home and start working on them.  I felt that if I didn’t “download” my ideas from my head soon, it was going to explode.

Now I’m a bit more normal. I’m being social again after about a week of me time.  I’m trying to get out of the house at least once a day, whether it be for a walk around the city for exercise or for groceries, partially so the lady I live with doesn’t think I’ve gone nutballs crazy and chained myself to my bed for eternity.

I may go to Mendoza next weekend to visit Bobby again because he is there for an indetermined amount of time.  I really want to go when he is there because I like seeing my friends and it gives me a good excuse to go to Mendoza (other than the kickass wine).  We’ll see how I feel by Thursday and if I can handle another mini trip 14 hours south by bus…

Backpacks are great things if the straps don’t break. Your hands are free, steps are no problem, and they don’t get muddy in puddles. I hope you one day learn the joys of smallish, well-fitting backpacks!

yeah i just have to get one that is newer and has thicker, more durable straps. i agree that pulling a wheelie suitcase is not very practical in my situation as a backpacker. I do want to get a backpack that opens up like a suitcase though (not from the top like most packs but zips around the side) because i hate having to take everything out just to get to one thing or to be super strategic and know what i’m going to use first and put it near the top. i’m on the hunt!

I didn’t know you had a blog! I have been following your stuff on the web since I came across your Adventures in Allentown video on You Tube, when I was looking for Allentown videos back in 2007.
