This page holds all future itineraries. It is also a spot where I can jot down a few ideas.
Some trips I'll definitely do, some I'm thinking about. They are categorised as follows:
- Planned Trip - dates have been set and bookings have been made
- Probable Trip - nothing or very little has been booked but it's highly likely I'll take this trip
- Possible Trip - the trip is currently only an idea, nothing is set in stone
Planned Trip: May, June, July 2011
Duration: 3 months
- Carnaval - 5th to 12th March, 2011
- Peruvian Election - April 10, 2011
- Pedometer - original route (ex. Panama)
- Google Maps - locations of bus stations, airports, hostels, border crossings, etc
