2010 Limited Edition GO Calendars - Preview Them HERE!

Back in July, when we were touring the expensive islands of the Bahamas, we posted a sad picture of me eating cocktail sausages straight out of a can for lunch.

Thankfully, a more affordable lifestyle was available in Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. However, since setting foot into Chile and Argentina, we have been nervously watching our bank reserves depleting rapidly - much too rapidly. We are back to arming ourselves with the cheapest brand of white bread available and a handful of canned/salted/preserved meat for our meals.


Yes, that means no more of Argentina's famous thick, juicy grilled steaks for us
(but we've only had two so far... which we shared between us!)

Other than scaling back on our daily living expenses
(meaning crappier hostels and cheaper overnight bus rides) and travel costs (by prioritising our tours and drastically cutting down our list of destinations), we are looking at the possibility of raising enough funds to see us through till it's time to go home.

A few months back, we ran a poll on our blog asking our readers whether they would consider purchasing 2010 calendars featuring photographs taken on our trip.
We received a fairly encouraging response to the online poll, with many readers agreeing to purchase a copy for themselves to support us, and a few generous folks who said that they would get a few copies as gifts for their friends as well. Yaaaaaayyy!

Well all that polling has not come to naught, for we are going to start running the printing press very soon! Choosing
(reluctantly) to forgo a rather pricey horseback-riding excursion left us with a free day in Cordoba today, so we sat ourselves down and designed a calendar for sale.

We are now taking orders for our
Limited Edition 2010 GO Calendars featuring a collection of prized photographs taken in the USA, Caribbean, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia and Chile. We have carefully selected pictures that we hope convey the beauty and uniqueness of these destinations. (Trust me, the selection process was a very painstaking experience.)

Here's a preview of what we're setting out to print:

Hi

chanced up your blogpg thru singaporedream. m a fan of his blogpage!

you have a awesome lovely calendar! wondering if you do have tabletop ones instead?

Yi Lin said...

Hi Kimmy,

Noooo, for places like Bolivia and Yellowstone, we have to lock you up in the fridge for at least 3 days with the calendar to look at - then you can really feel like you were in these places :P Thanks for the compliments. And thanks for getting a copy!

Hello Heartache,

Welcome to our blog. Yups, I respect singaporedream for doing a 2-year trip on a motorbike. Thanks for liking our calendar. We are only doing wall calendars - they are bigger thank desktop ones, so the photos will look better on them. We hope that won't stop you from getting a copy though and that you will save a place on your wall for it :) Do drop us a note at degoatman@hotmail.com if you're interested.
