When I was made redundant in September 2015, I decided to take my sabbatical year even earlier than planned (which was originally Aug 2018). I decided to start my journey from Valparaiso/Chile and within 6 weeks I have done most of my preparations. My motorbike got picked up on Nov 3, 2015, is leaving Hamburg by boat on Nov 13, 2015 and will arrive on Dec 18, 2015. I will fly to Santiago de Chile on Dec 31, 2015, spending New Year in the plane and land on Jan 1, 2016.
