As followers of my blog know, my countdown is moving closer and closer to zero hour. The time I pack up (again), sell off everything else (again), and move across the ocean (again). This time, however, I will not be going direct. Since I am starting a new job in mid-September that promises to be more demanding (and hopefully more exciting) than my current one, I decided to take a vacation first. Well, more of a trip, really. I am going to South America for 18 days prior to moving back to Chicago. I booked my tickets this afternoon. I'll be flying from Hawaii to Chicago, dropping off some bags, flying the next morning to Lima, Peru, hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, going over to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands, and then heading back to Chicago to start my job. It'll be a whirlwind trip, but I'm looking forward to it. Machu Picchu has been on my bucket list for quite a while, so I can't wait.
