Fear, Dare, and Build

It’s 8:05pm. I’m sitting in 26F, a window seat. Josh is in 27B, middle seat one row behind me. The clutter of people trying to change seats with other travelers on the Wingo, the Ryan Air of Latin America, led us to decide it would be easier to sit apart for the short 1.5 hour flight from Panama City to Bogota.

Dang Diabetic Defalcator

In a sad turn of events today, my phone was stolen from our hostel lobby. This morning Josh and I were planning to ride from Boquete, Panama, to Santiago. Around 10:30am, we finished up our coffee and bananas and decided we better pack up as check out was 11:00am.

Josh Rides Solo

A lot has happened since our latest blog post, which I think was written from Guatemala. Rachel flew out of Guatemala City to New York City and I (Josh here!) rode quickly through several countries. We reunited in San Jose Costa Rica after a week apart and we’re already in Panama!

Goodbye Guatemala

It’s 7:09am. I think it’s central time, but I’m flying from Guatemala to Miami, so who could really say. This morning, I woke up at 4:30am in Guatemala City with Josh. We put my bags in a taxi, and I said goodbye to him.

Bienvenidos a Central America

The quiet here did not come without a price. The road from Raxuha to Semuc Champey (our current riverside destination) was only 83km, but the ride took us 4 hours. We were spoiled with asphalt for the first 45 minutes of our ride before the universe shook her fist.

Thanks Mexico, We'll Be Coming Bacalar

 Since we got here in the dark, we didn’t see the lake until this morning. It is a stunning combination of blues depending on the depth and our hotel was right on the water. We are going to spend a few days here getting our things in order and making sure we are ready to cross the border into Belize. This will be our final Mexican city, and let me tell you it is a spectacular way to wrap up a country.

Lessons Learned from Traveling for Two Months

I’m writing this blog post from our cozy Airbnb in the heart of Barrio Guadalupe, a quiet neighborhood just ten minutes by foot from the center of San Cristobal de Las Casas. San Cristobal is, as everyone told us it would be, a special place.

We're Having Oaxaca of a Good Time

We left the Pyramid of the Sun on Jan 1st and drove an hour and a half South to Tepoztlan. We had heard that it was a popular day trip from Mexico City and attracted a “new age” vibe. That was about all we knew, but it sounded good enough to visit.

Baja Norte

​I just looked at Rachel and asked “so.. you left off in Ensenada, right?” That seems like a month ago, but I think it’s only been a few days. I’ll catch you up chronologically, and if I haven’t typed ten thousand words, I’ll get into the details and my feelings and flowery language!

Patience Practice

Wow, this is my (Josh's) first attempt at writing a blog post in a long time, so please bear with me while I get back in the swing of things. I'm also writing this on my phone because I sold my computer last night. And for my final excuse, I just stole one of my father-in-law's apple fritters and my fingers are sticky.
