Long Term Unconventional Travel

Latin America 2023

Our next trip is our longest yet, as we take 4 months to travel farther south than we've ever been in the Americas. The trip will challenge our language skills, take us out of our comfort zone, and give us new views of the world. Check back regularly to follow the adventure!

Preparing for Our Trip

Chris and I are getting ready for our next trip to Mexico City, Panama City, the Galapagos Islands, and Peru. We'll be spending lots of time in the places we're visiting so we can really get to know the area. In total, we'll be traveling for about 4 months. Long-term travel is different than just going away on vacation for a few weeks and the planning we need to do for a long trip takes a bit more effort.

We're heading to the doctor to update our vaccines and get meds like malaria pills, preparing to leave by making sure our home and finances are in order, checking our gear, and packing everything we need for our trip into one backpack each. Check out the full blog posts here.

Mexico City

We're in this beautiful city for a month and our list of places to see and things to do keep growing. At the top of our list is exploring the historic downtown center, including Zocalo and El Templo Mayor, visiting the Teotihuacan archeological site, taking a colourful boat called a trajinera along the canals in Xochimilco, walking through Chapultepec forest, visiting as many street markets as we can find, and trying lots of food.
