This trip has taking a lot of research and organising. There is no way we would have been able to do it without the internet. Other peoples blogs and websites have helped us so much and we hope we can do the same. We will post as much information as possible as we go along. Here are a few websites that we have used so far.
This is the website for the French couple who are travelling with their four kids on a similar trip to ours. We met them in Tela, Honduras and they are such an amazing family. Their son Liam was diagnosed with leukemia when he was three and went through three years of operations and treatment. All the time they promised him if he got better they would travel the world. So when he got better they sold their house in Austin, bought and RV and have been on the road for six months. Please check out their website, it such a heart warming story and you can also subscribe to it to help them along the way.
We met Thomas and Antonella at the parking lot in Panama. They shipped their van from German to Halifax, Canada and have also been on a similar route to ours. They were a wonderful help to us throughout the shipping process and are a cool couple to hang out with. Here is their website:
We loved the language school we did in Todos Santos, Guatemala. Our teacher was excellent and Lucas the coordinator is great with helping to organise family stays and hikes. A lot of the children in Todos Santos are illiterate and their families cannot afford to send them to school. This school gives a percentage of your fees back to the community. Also, if you are interested in sponsering a child in Todos Santos to go to school, please contact the school at the website below. It costs about $200 to send a child to all three levels of education and it would be greatly appreciated.
