What I did
Bought my Ticket!

So I've been planning this journey from Cancun to Panama for months and months now, checking flights and mapping different routes and gathering price information. Along the way I have had to tell a number of people about my plans for after graduating college....Their answers have all been fairly similar:

"Your'e crazy."
"Um...WHY?"
"Are you going alone?!"
*insert list of dangers and worries*
"I'll have the church cover you in prayer..."


So nobody has really been too supportive or encouraging other than really close friends who know my exact life dreams and passions and personality. My parents are obviously the most worried of them all and honestly I can't really blame them. I have never traveled for this long and at a time in my life where I, as of right now, don't have anything to come back to.

Being that I just graduated from college, I have a summer camp job position lined up and no loan payments due until 6 months from now. I am not attached to a career or a husband or a house. This is THE perfect time to fulfill a segment of my list of life dreams. I'm in dire need of an epic journey and adventure and learning/growing experience.......What better way than travel down Central America?!


So for now, Scary but Exciting, I have JUST bought and booked my one way ticket (at the cheapest I've seen them for the past few months!) to Cancun where the adventure will begin!!! AND my boyfriend Mike will be accompanying me!!! He bought his one way ticket out of Baltimore, MD for about $30 cheaper than my ticket (the butt.), and will be arriving in Cancun within a few minutes before me. (This will calm the family) He is Wilderness First Responder certified and practices forms of martial arts and therefore, I get gashed by a rock: he fixes. I get cornered by scary men: he goes all ninja on their bootys!


So for those of you who don't know or are curious:
Starting in Cancun, Mexico
Belize
Guatemala
El Salvador
Honduras
Nicaragua
Costa Rica
Ending in Panama City, Panama
and then back to the United States hopefully in one piece and with a little money left over (....yeh right.)

OK - I've got it now. Let the grand adventure begin! Of course, I don't remember when that is (it's tough getting old) but I look forward to hearing about your progress. I also applaud your effort as it sounds like you will do a lot of very good things along the way.
