Trip Map

May 22nd, 2007

Here’s a world map showing where our travels took us for the past 25 months. Countries we visited on this trip (all 39 of them) are in blue and we filled in previously visited places in green. You can click on the image to get a much larger version of the picture. Somehow, we thought we were going to spend a lot less time in the air before we set out on this trip (did we mention that Marc hates to fly?). We promise to get a Mexico blog up soon.



Days 694-719: Guatemala and Belize

April 15th, 2007

Guatemala: Antigua, Panajachel, Chichicastenango, Flores, Tikal
Belize: San Ignacio, Xunantunich, Caye Caulker, Orange Walk, Lamanai

Colorful festivities, serious shopping, awesome coffee, huge temples, warty birds, and a whole lot of relaxing. All that and we discovered why people say, “Sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite.”

Really cool temples at Tikal.

February 16th, 2007

Ecuador: Loja, Cuenca, Guayquil, Baños, Quito
Panama: Panamá City, David, Boquete, Bocas del Toro

The highlight of Ecuador was definitely the Galapgos. But we enjoyed the short time we spent on the mainland before we caught a flight to Panama. Panama is a pretty small country, so we breezed through it. But those of you who enjoy the bug photos will like this entry.

Islas Baltra, Plaza Sur, Santa Fe, Española, Floreana, Santa Cruz, Rabida, Santiago, Bartolome, Seymor Norte

Dancing feet of the blue-footed booby.
