Having met at uni in London, without GAP years and being settled in jobs for a while, Chris shook things up with a proposal- a proposal of marriage! As big events do, it got us thinking about what we want to do with our lives (what do we want to be when we grow up?) with 30 just around the corner? It was time to shake things up again and go where no man has gone before, well, no man called Chris Watson and woman called Sarah Price, have gone before. We originally set ourselves the challenge of living abroad for a year in Spain, but when 6 months was what was granted by Mickey Mouse in his European-head-office house (Sarah works for Disney), it made us want to push ourselves a bit more. As usually is the case, a cocktail made a previously mad idea from an old school friend, (Nicky, you’re to blame!) sound sane and before we knew it we were booking flights to Buenos Aires for a trip to push us out of our pretty-well-established comfort zones. So now, with Chris having left his teaching job, we’re off to dive into Argentina, Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Columbia, Venezuela, Brazil and Uruguay to celebrate life, our 30th birthdays, Christmas 2012, New Year 2013 and Carnival!
So, why a blog…?
- So mums know we’re alive- you’re going to have to learn how to use the internet! (more for Sarah’s than Chris’ mum)
- So that even though we’re out of sight, we won’t be out of mind of all our awesome friends back home!
- A keepsake for when we get back.
