YA'LL! I am writing this while sitting at my gate in Dallas getting ready to board my flight to freaking BUENOS AIRES!! AHH!! Guys, I cannot believe this happening. I have waited my whole life for this adventure and it's only an 11 hour plane flight away!!
I spent the morning before my flights brunching and shopping with my sweet mama in Alexandria. What a way to start an adventure.
First off, this plane ride so far. Let me tell you. My bag weighed 49lbs. even, PRAISE. Until I found out that American Airlines allows 70lbs. or 2 free checked bags. So pocket that little tidbit of info! Secondly, I'm carrying two huge carry on bags which are crushing me + a big jacket + a big scarf and I have never sweat more in my life. So imagine me being the absolute last person to board my flight with no more overhead room. It came down to basically me crying in the aisle to the flight attendant about how I'm moving to Argentina and can't check my duffle because I have a connecting flight. After that little melt down though and a sweet woman offering to carry my bags from one end of the plane to the gate for me. People rock. Then I got to sit next to two pilot dads who told me dad jokes and taught me a lot about aviation. I'm kind of thinking I would be an awesome pilot now. Maybe? Maybe not?
From Buenos Aires I will be adventuring into the sweet mountains of Patagonia where I will be hiking (both mountains and glaciers), hanging with some National Geographic photographers + taking a workshop class with them, horseback riding, tangoing the night away, and so much more!! So for the next couple of weeks I invite you to tag along virtually because I love ya'll a lot.
Over these next few months I hope to update my blog at least once a week, maybe twice if you all ask nicely. Also, I would love to be pen pals with you all and send you some sweet Argentinian post cards. I'll get you that mailing address as soon as I have it! Until then, keep on checking here and all of my other social media which you can find linked at the bottom of this page! Until then, hasta la vista!
PS: What hashtag do we like better: #LivingLikeKerry or #KerryFlysSouth...or do you have an idea for an awesome hashtag? If so let me know in the comments below and if I use it I may just snag you a sweet pair of alpaca socks.
