After months of planning, fundraising, practicing and nail-biting, we are finally leaving for Bogota this Friday. It’s hard to believe the time has finally come- it doesn’t seem that long ago we were brainstorming ideas back in smoky China. Our time spent at home this summer has flown by too, and soon it will be time to kiss our mother’s goodbye yet again (thank goodness for skype!).
I’m really psyched to begin our South American journey in Colombia, a country that is rapidly changing and becoming more open and appealing to tourists. I think we’re going to find a lot of interesting content for this project in this energetic place. Our first month will be spent mostly in Bogota, the capital city, where we are hoping to connect with some fellow expats.
Thanks in part to some generous contributions, we are well equipped for our big voyage. I’m slightly dizzy considering the array of electronics and video equipment we are carrying on our backs. Don’t worry though- we’ve insured it all!
So now, it’s down to the real work: documenting Everywhere Connection. We’re hoping to produce one quality web episode every month for the next 6-9 months. At the end of that time we will be able to sew these together into a final product. Each of these episodes will cover a different aspect of how technology has influenced the way we travel. We’ve got a lot of ideas already!
You can expect to see more activity on this website in the near future- we want to keep you as involved in this process as possible! If you haven’t yet, be sure to join our facebook page for even more updates.
