So the plan is I head to Cuba on the 31st March, nip back over the pond for my little niece’s christening in Thurles (Ireland), over to see family in Edmonton (Canada) on the 19th April then onto Cancun (Mexico) by the 30th April and
overland from there to Santiago (Chile) with as many fun stops along the way including the Blue Hole in Belize, Spanish lessons in Central America, Death Road in Bolivia, the Amazon in Peru etc. ETA in Chile = I’m sorry I haven’t a clue!
Well the Chile plan kind of changed! One day while looking at a map I saw the potential for seeing Rio. Flights home from there being much cheaper I now have a new end point on the 24th November.
I’m trying to do as much as possible on this trip to learn new skills, gain new experiences, meet new people and hopefully have a positive impact on the CV to help me get a job either on the way or on my return to the UK. There’s more about that in an earlier blog post here.
Starting this blog has helped me realise the vast range of opportunities for travel writing out there. I’d love to get involved with this, perhaps with guest posts on other blogs or if I’m really lucky get some paid travel writing work. Please do get in touch if you know a way to help me with this. I’d also be interested on sharing some really good articles about Latin America or what’s going on back in the UK from other bloggers.
