Following two weeks in New Zealand with the families we are finally beginning our journey proper and catching our flight to South America. Things have started off on an amazing note with what we had expected to be a squashed 13 hour flight morphing into a business class trip for two courtesy of a free upgrade. I knew all that time spent travelling to Singapore last year for work would payoff eventually!

Leaving Sydney is sad given the good friends we have made here and the great memories over what has almost been five years. On the other hand 6 months in South America and then a new adventure in London sounds pretty good as well.

To all our family and friends (James and Louis you are not among these people) we will do our best to keep in touch and will always look you up if we are in the neighbourhood. You are of course should all do the same if you are passing through London!

Check back in the next few days for the first proper update from Buenos Aires.

Business class! That is AWESOME. I see you decided to leave out the fact that you lost your boarding pass, followed closely by your passport before you had even left on your "excellent adventure" :) Have fun you twoxo
