Mike here. Let’s begin at the beginning.
For us, that takes us down to the southern hemisphere, to Sari’s home country of Chile. We had met before in LA for a brief period of time, but the spark grew into a flame when I made the crazy move to travel Chile with Sari. It seemed crazy at the time because we had only had about 72 hours of shared experience together. When we met at the airport seven months after our first meeting, neither of us knew what to expect. We both figured, “Eh, if it doesn’t work out then we can go our separate ways.” So it was in this mindset of no-stakes, not-caring-what-the-other-thinks, and total-freedom-to-be-ourselves, that we boarded our next plane to Patagonia.
