Packing–Day 1


What do you take when you have an entire car full of space? Start with safety, blankets in case we get stranded, follow with comfort, our pillows, and toilet paper. Who knows what toilet paper lurks in other countries?!

This trip requires clothing for warm weather (coast of Peru, coast of Chile, Argentina) where daily highs are in the 80s and lows in the 60s (F); clothes for cold weather (Bolivia, Ushuaia) where daily highs are in the 50s and lows around 35 at night. Jackets, vests, shoes, socks, gloves, hats as well as shorts, sandals, short sleeved shirts. There are subtle considerations, too. Will we cross the borders faster with less luggage or will we inspire suspicion?

I am a retired archaeologist and I like to travel, especially to places where you can walk along the shore or watch birds. My husband Jonathan and I travel for more than half the year every year, seeing all the places that we haven't gotten to yet.
