We've been in Whitehorse for a month and a half now and we're trying to adjust to being back in North America where everything is logical and things happen on time. There are many good things about being back such as seeing family and Vladmir (our hilarious toothless cat who's been staying with my mom, thank you!!) and friends, enjoying the northern summer and fall, not living out of our backpacks (or at least not having to move around all the time), thinking about our future plans (buying a car, looking at land to buy) etc. But it is certainly an adjustment and I am missing South America a lot. We really got used to the "tranquilo" way of life (meaning things happen on their own time) and became very comfortable with our chaotic and disorganized way of life. I have so enjoyed learning about completely different cultures, learning Spanish, meeting other travelers and friends, making every minute count, living in the moment, being in the jungle, doing lots of yoga. This year has really been amazing. I am happy to look back at so many wonderful memories, and I am excited to start looking ahead to building the life we want. The vision of this life is starting to take form but still has a long way to go.
