We have finally decided on a [mostly] concrete list of countries that we will be visiting on our trip. With the exception of Europe (we’re saving that for a trip of its own) and Antarctica (unless we win the lottery sometime before we depart) we will step foot on the remaining 5 continents of the globe and we will cross every ocean! Ambitious? Yes. Impossible? We sure hope not. As of now, we have all the time in the world, so whether this trip takes 1 year, 16 months, or half of our lifetimes, we just want to have as many experiences as possible. Our itinerary looks something like this:
Central/Latin America: Belize, Costa Rica, Panama, Guatemala
South America: Ecuador (and the Galapagos Islands), Peru, Chile, Bolivia, Argentina, Brazil
Caribbean (still TBD if we’ll even do the Caribbean): Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Barbados, and we’d love to find a way to get into Cuba
Africa: Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Madagascar, Seychelles
Asia: Russia, Japan, Taiwan, Mongolia, Bhutan, China, Hong Kong, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Tibet, Nepal, and India
Australia: Australia, New Zealand, Tasmania
Islands/South Pacific: Tonga, Palau, Maldives, Tahiti, Fiji, Guam
North America: Mexico, Puerto Rico and the United States – our starting point.
Obviously finances, visas and blank passport pages will determine whether or not we’re successful in visiting this many countries but this is what we have planned and are hoping for.
