Our plans

Seven months on the road, sea, and in the air

overcast 15 °C

Here's a preview of our major destinations in the order we plan to explore them:

  • Costa Rica's Pacific Coastline
  • Central and Caribbean Coast of Panama
  • Caribbean Coast of Colombia
  • Coast and Highlands of Peru
  • Interior Guatemala

We will be taking planes, buses, sailboats, taxis, and possibly burros.

Hopefully these ones:

And not this poor guy:

In fact, Eduardo has passed on to that great Machu Picchu in the sky.

Some of my goals for the trip include the following:

  1. Perfecting my Spanish. (como duh, no?)
  2. Expanding my yoga practice.
  3. Practicing daily meditation and creative exercise routines like crossfit .
  4. Learning how to surf, snorkel, and make a great Pisco sour.
  5. Volunteering in-depth in Guatemala.
  6. Ignoring the vicissitudes of American politics, my retirement account, or Boston sports teams.
  7. Keeping up this blog and a personal journal. Perhaps writing the great [Latin] American novel too.
  8. Growing in patience, love, peace, and understanding.

Things I want to avoid:

  1. Over-planning.
  2. Skin cancer.
  3. Diarrhea.
Ranked in order of importance.
