"Hey Cuz! Want to go to Argentina with me?" So began the planning stages of our trip. When I say planning, I'm talking everything from coordinating our busy schedules as full time working mothers to ensuring our full time working husbands were going to be able to handle the household while we were gone. We talked about what to pack, what to wear, what not to pack and what not to wear and who was bringing what so we didn't double-up. Luckily, we were able to utilize some knowledge of Adventure Life's past travelers and gather a few tips (like bringing a headlamp or flashlight when you travel to an EcoLodge in the Argentine Rainforest - lights out at 10PM! Or - buying a cheap rain poncho rather than a super expensive Gortex for your trip to Iguazu Falls). Alas - the trip date approached and we were as ready as we were going to be. My cousin and I have been the best of friends since we were kids and have been through MANY adventures together . . . . this trip to Argentina was sure to be nothing less than spectacular!
