It began as a whim or perhaps more a dream as 3 long time colleagues acknowledged the effects of aging on their bodies but not on their spirits or sense of adventure. WE MUST do an adventure while we are all able and willing, they declared. So despite anxiety regarding care for their three aging mothers during this adventure, the dreaming and research began......First, the date. Between work and family obligations, professional conferences, classes, and the holidays, we finally agreed upon a vacation schedule--well, almost. Janet was able to leave earlier so the first few days of this adventure are her solo travel experience.So, next, the destination. Where is the weather good for outdoor adventure in December? None of us had been to Argentina and Pagatonia beckoned to us. Carol Jo had previously traveled with Adventure Life. The pieces were falling into place! Monika at Adventure Life arranged a wonderful trip, taking into consideration my solo travel on the Custom Buenos Aires and the Falls Tour, and meeting up with Kathy and Carol Jo on the Awesome Argentina 8-Day Tour.Finally, the travel day arrived! This is our most excellent adventure.
