Lost Along the Way

  • Leggings and underwear on our way to shower lost to a river in Chapada Diamantina, Brazil
  • Tissues, lotion, a notebook and a half pillow (intentionally) ditched by Alie in Ilha Grande, Brazil to lighten the load (Michael is still pissed)
  • FitBit step tracker lost to the uber home from the Sambodrome in Rio de Janiero, Brazil
  • Fleece hat lost to the strong winds of the Beagle Channel in Ushuaia, Argentina
  • Nailclippers lost somewhere along the way in Brazil (found in Peru!)
  • Salami, lettuce, apples and a grapefruit lost to the feisty Chilean border control
  • Two jars of unopened peanut butter stolen by the Newark airport TSA man who claims peanut butter is a paste (Alie is still pissed)
  • Any (of the little) muscle we had built up in the gym over the past few years lost to the fact that exercise has gone out the window
  • Our desire to eat carbs lost after one too many hostel breakfasts that only serve bread, butter & jam
  • Our flexible platypus water bottle voluntarily lost to the man atop Machu Picchu Mountain… He admired its ability to fold up when empty, and we sympathized with his 3,000 meter, vertical hike every morning
  • Alie’s hiking shoes stolen outside of our tent during a 5-day trek to Machu Picchu
  • Michael’s sunglasses lost to the slopes of Mount Doom, New Zealand
