So, after the rather well behaved (cough) week in the Andes last summer I lay in bed in Helsinki this morning with my beautiful fiancé pricing up 8 days riding in the Southern Hemisphere with 6 days on top to see the country. Anticipation rising of being able to let loose this time as hopefully I won't have a 4cm fracture in my skull and a broken clavical. That slowed me up so much last year ;)

Got presented with the question, do you think it's the right time to "holiday" in Chile, to which I answered I believed it to be the best time. Any little I can do to keep the economy seems right. That and I loved the place so much last time it seems right.

No airmiles left so this is gonna be 20 hours in economy which given my experience last time out will be tough. Will need two doses of Valium I think, one for the flight and one for the future Mrs_11 ;) well not for her exactly but you know what I mean.

Decided to book, borrow and pay for it this week. Never know what will happen the week after. She has agreed to learn the noble art of snowboarding rather than skiing. I couldn't be happier :)

Congratulations Tino 8) I think you should both learn to ski and share the experience :D I'm biased though!

20 hours in economy reads like hard work, can you get better prescription drugs?
