I am turning the big 3-0 this year, and what better way is there to celebrate it than by chucking in my job and embracing unemployment? By doing this and throwing caution to the wind – backpacking alone through Central America whilst diving the beautiful Caribbean, learning Spanish, and working out what the hell it is that I want to do with the rest of my life.
I will be flying out of London on the 16th of November, spending a week diving in Florida, then starting my Central American adventures in Mexico City on the 23rd of November. I have a flight from Bogota back to London at the end of April but, who knows, if I’m loving it then I may stay a bit longer (and if I run out of money, then I will be back sooner!).
I’d really like to get to Cuba, Jamaica, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, but I may have to save those destinations for another trip.
Check back here for preparations, and blog entries and photos while I’m away. Only 47 days to take off!
