oh, also, i’ve eliminated south america from this itinerary. south america is a HUGE continent and there’s so much to see there. i decided that my focus will be on those countries further and more remote from my home for this trip. sometime in the future i would like to explore south america – machu picchu, the galapagos, easter island, the amazon, and beyond – for an extended period of time and feel that the continent deserves much time for exploration and focus on its own.
