Tomorrow I set off at 8am for Lima, Peru! It feels pretty wild to be leaving, and as is tradition, I left a bit too much to the last minute. But everything is all set now and it's time so ship off. Abi joins me Wednesday morning and we embark on this journey. So far I know one thing for sure: My Spanish can only get better from here.
For all who are interested I included a (more or less) complete photo of the kit. This is presumably enough to get me through the city, country, beach, jungle, and mountains of South America for the next 4-5 months. Check back in to see how it's all going and I'll try to update here as much as possible to keep everyone in the loop. I'll miss y'all and will be in touch so check your apps. Feel free to Whatsapp, skype, gchat, instagram, email, and carrier pigeon me whenever you want.
I had to change my Whatsapp number to a google voice number, if you want to chat on there change my phone number to: 347-960-6383. In general, everyone can update my contact info to this since I will be losing the my old number. R.I.P 973-632-7531 it's been a good ride.
For this blog there is no link on the main page of matthewdolph.com (need to keep that profesh so someone will hire me one day in the future) so if you want to share the blog you need to type the whole address (matthewdolph.com/trip-wire).
Follow me on Instagram @ mdolph90 for real time updates, my world class photography, and lots of ceviche.
