Celebrating in Mendoza
Three months ago we left Rio de Janeiro on our cycling adventure around South America. 4,800km later, we are in Mendoza, Argentina drinking wine, admiring the views of the Andes and celebrating our engagement!
Paddy popped the question on a wine tour of Mendoza’s vineyards, overlooking the vines and with the Andes in the background.
Apparently, he’d had it planned for a while, but I was incredibly surprised and asked him if he was sure several times and called him crazy a bit.
We’ve since been shopping for a ring that I can wear whilst we are travelling. We’re both incredibly happy and looking forward to enjoying the rest of our adventure around South America.
I imagine there will be a few discussions about weddings whilst we cycle around, but we’ll leave the planning until we get home.
For the moment we are focused on the climb over the Andes into Chile and then heading down to Santiago. We leave tomorrow so are currently stocking up on supplies and preparing the bikes for our biggest challenge yet.
