This will be my first BIG trip overseas and I am the last of my school mates to have done the backpacking thing so I have been able to plenty of advice along the way, and I think I am pretty well prepared and researched for my trip of a lifetime.
The trip will have three main chapters: my exploration into Mayan culture, laying on beaches in the Caribbean, and my third trip to the USA before returning home to unemployment and poverty in Australia
I am going to start in Los Angeles, go down into Mexico, over to Cuba and Jamaica, back to Mexico then down to Belize and Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, COsta Rica, and then into Panama to complete the Central American part of my trip.
From there I am going up to Florida (USA) and slowly across the south of the country to arrive back in Los Angeles sometime later. I will have just my backpack and my tent and will stay in hostels where I can afford to as well.
