So our plans, right. Kiley and I are on Christmas vacation now. We've been number crunching and it looks like this: Fly into Panama ($380), cross the border to South America-Columbia, to Brazil, Bolivia, and then soar back on up to Cuenca (Ecuador). From Ecuador, we'll bee-bop back to the States (~$700) If we have exact dates soon, a multi-city plane ticket would total $586 on
-Will maria get a job this summer?
-Will Becky Bowman join us in Panama?
-Will Julian the German guy meet us in Brazil?
-Will it be possible to drive a motorcycle across borders? (eh, wishful)
-Extra costs: will we have the money even for this shoestring?
-How long can we legally be there?
Things to think about:
Counchsurfing. Travel Guides. Hostels. National Parks. Purchasing good gear. Volunteer opportunities. Taking a Quechua language course while in Ecuador. Grad school. Books to bring.
