Looking Ahead

 As we begin to draft a rough itinerary of our travels here are a few of the sights and activities that will be included:

Visiting the monarch butterfly reserve; sleeping in a hammock on the beach; wwoofing; hiking Machu Picchu; watching sea turtles lay eggs; following La Ruta Maya; Aztec ruins at Teotihuacan; drinking Yerba Mate with the locals in Uruguay; wildlife watching in the Galapagos Islands; beach hopping in the Yucatan; exploring the Amazon; salt flats in Bolivia; the Zapatistas in Chiapas; and trekking to the ends of the earth to explore glacial lakes in Patagonia.

First Things First

Greetings!  The countdown is on.  Just over two months remain until the start of our journey, a slow travel adventure through Mexico, Central and South America.  This blog will be part travelogue, part destination guide, and part commentary.  Stay tuned…
