Turtle and Barracuda Go Digital

Gringo and Gringette Prepare to Head South- September 12th!

It is probably less surprising that Ben and I are going to Central America on a one-way ticket than it is that we have entered the digital age! I just got my first ever digital camera and we should be getting our camcorder today in the mail, which means we will be able to keep you updated during our whole trip (though as always, I reserve the right to long silences due to laziness).

In naming this blog, we avoided the temptation to go with the incredibly obvious "Ben and Kim's Adventure in Central America," or the even more dull "Ben and Kim's Trip to Guatemala," or the even lamer "Ben and Kim's Guatemalan Adventure." Instead it is named after our "spirit animals," otherwise known as animals we saw once while swimming in the ocean and therefore deemed them spirit animals. I dare say that my encounter with the barracuda while snorkling was a little more life-changing and life-threatening than Ben's encounter with the turtle while surfing...but who am I to judge.

Stay tuned for much more exciting posts once the trip begins!

Well, here's a sexist reaction for you...I assumed Barracuda was Ben, and Turtle was Kim. The Turtle just seemed so much more girly, obviously! But I like thinking that you, Kim, are the Barracuda!!!

Hi, Ben and Kim. Thanks for your e-mail. I hope I have done this right so we can continue to receive your blogs. Thanks for inviting us to go along with you on this adventure via your blogs. We love you lots. Grandma and Grandpa

Hi Ben and Kim - I had the same reaction that Kim's Aunt Jeanne had - I thought Ben was the Baracuda and Kim the turtle. You two constantly surprise and amaze me.

I'm so excited for you both! Hope it's as fun as it sounds. We may be in the country in April, so we'll have to stop by. It's a small country and by then everyone will know you, right?
