Change of Plans

Ah the rush of international travel… Hours of research, packing and unpacking and repacking, goodbyes and hellos and goodbyes again, buses, trains, planes, customs, currency exchange, my first stamp in a fresh passport – oh yes, we’re on the road again. Why? How? Where?…

13 Ways to Start Seeing the World on a Budget

Ok, it’s not free… but you know that you can budget travel, right? Right? Psst…I spent less than $7,000 traveling through Central and South America for 5 months not working (and it so could’ve been cheaper). Seven grand may sound like a lot. But…

Coming Home

It’s hard to believe I’ve been home for over a month. My final flight landed me home in Indianapolis, IN, where I was warmly greeted by my sisters, father, and boyfriend. It was pretty surreal seeing all the people I had greatly missed. Since…

Progress – Itinerary Developments

With less than 9 weeks until takeoff, I thought I’d share our planning progress and an updated itinerary.  Our first stop is Cancun, Mexico. We’ll get a little relaxation on the beach, and then we’re on the go. We have four weeks from landing…

Planning is half the fun…

So this is the blogging world… As many of you know, I, Bekah, am leaving for an adventure with my roommate and confidant, Claudia, for a 5 month trip through Central and South America. We are flying into Cancun, Mexico on July 8 from…
