An experiment

This is an experiment. By “this” I don’t mean trying to hike from the Mexican border through hot desert, snowy mountains and evergreen forests all the way to Canada (though that’s an experiment, too😄). I’m talking about trying to blog along the way. It’s something I’ve never done before, and although I like writing, I’m a bit uncertain if I can keep it up during all of our adventure, mainly because it will be exhausting and I’ll need to type everything on my phone (I’m not very fast at texting).

On the other hand, it will not only be an awesome memory for the two of us, but it will also be a way to keep our family and friends up to date with our progress and our experiences while we are away. To that end, I’ll write (or at least try it) in English, as this is the only common language our Swiss as well as our Spanish friends and family will understand.

So here we go! If everything goes as planed, we’ll start on the 30th of March near Campo at the Mexican border. Until then, we still have a lot to do organising our six-month leave, getting our gear together, testing it and traning (at least a little😉).

But already, we’re super excited and can’t wait to leave!! Let’s see what happens once this little experiment starts…
