I previously wrote about how Buenos Aires is the type of city that sucks you in. It sucked me in for 4 months.
I was ready for a place to call home before I actually arrived in Buenos Aires. I wanted to settle down somewhere. I had been to this city before and knew I would be back one day. I had never lived in a huge city like this, and I wanted to try it.
I did it. I lived in one of the biggest cities in the world for 4 months.
And I loved it!
But it is time to move on.
The weather is a bit of a problem for my planned itinerary. It is too cold to travel south to Patagonia. Sure, I could change the plan, but there is a bigger consideration than just the weather.
And if I am going to travel for more than a year, I want to come home and visit with friends and family.
I am excited about my decision to come home.
And as an added bonus, I am getting out of the cold Winter in Buenos Aires and stepping into a hot and humid Ohio. Every time I complain about how hot it is, you are all allowed to remind me that I was freezing my ass off in Buenos Aires not too long ago.
I am giving myself enough time so that I will not be stressed to make the rounds. I will also have time to enjoy the things I love about Columbus.
- Walks through my neighborhood.
- Leisurely mornings at my favorite coffee shop.
- Long bike rides on the Olentangy Trail.
- Girls nights at my favorite restaurants.
More Adventures Ahead
I am also excited because this trip home will kick off the resumption of my nomadic, backpacking lifestyle. When I return to South America, I have countryside, glaciers, and wildlife to see. I have mountains to climb and deserts to explore.
After traveling the rest of Argentina, I will make my way through Chile, Bolivia, and Peru.
