Around the Americas...
Yup, it's another trip around latin America. I'm planning on leaving the states mid october and thinking 8-10 months heading mostly down the west coast of central and south America and back up the east (lots of excursions in land in between). I'm also hopping to make parts of it into a culinary tour. I'm a photographer by trade and I'd like to do a photo journal on the different marcados and street foods and cooking techniques.
I'm still in the early stages of planning my route, and am looking to y'alls for some advice and some must see places as well as food and exotics eats. And if you're from central of south america, I'd love to meet up on the way. I'm not going on any time schedule and will happily change course for the right reasons so anywhere special you can recommend, please do. Also, as part of the culinary adventure, I'd love to volunteer at some restaurants, or be put to work on some farms, or fishing boats... I’m all about volunteering so any recommendations there would be appreciated as well.
Other things I hope to do on the trip... Meet different people and cultures of course, hike and/or climb, snorkel, surf, new experiences... Basically anything fun.
And finally, from those who have already done such a trip, any advice is more than welcome. I've read a lot of other peoples trip reports and blogs but keep 'em coming.
I’m definitely a bit nervous about this trip but getting pretty damn excited too.
Muchos Gracias everyone...
