Rough Itinerary - Click to go to itinerary
Cue the fanfare, today we present the Rough Itinerary
for our RTW trip beginning on July 6th, 2011. If you take the time to review our Rough Itinerary
, you'll notice that we've left it quite vague. So vague that we forgot to include any of the things we plan to do.
You're telling me that you are supposed to put activities into your itinerary? Are you sure?
To make amends, here's a small list of some of what we are planning to do along the way.
Visit the runes in Chitzen Itza on route to Belize

We'll probably stay in Belize for a week or so.

Next up, learning Spanish in Guatemala. From what we gather, we'll spend about 5 weeks in classes while living with a local family.

Eventually, we'll make our way to Ecuador where we hope to volunteer at Sacred Sueños for 1-3 months.

Our next scheduled activity isn't until the summer of 2012 when we plan to walk the 1900km Via Francigena.

We have to wait quite a while after the 80 day walk before we are allowed back into the Schengen Area due to visa requirements. This forces us to wait until July 2013 before coming back to Spain for La Tomatina in July 2013. La Tomatina is a non-negotiable item on Ashley's wish list.

From there, we've got another winter to while away before we go horseback riding yurt to yurt though Mongolia in the summer of 2014.

Everything else we'll make up as we go along.
What do you think - too defined? Too ambitious? Not ambitious enough?
