“The best laid schemes o’ mice an’ men often go awry”.

With only one month to go, our trip is seeming a lot more real today. Below is a map of our route that should see us arriving in Guatemala around April next year. The green lines indicate flights and are pretty much set in stone.


After flying to Cancún in mid-December we really do hope to hang up our wings and travel by land leaving the whole experience much more open to wandering. Yet so much could happen along those little blue lines.

The permaculture design certificate course in France should introduce a new perspective on the natural world and how we interact with it. Once in Canada, we’re hoping to do a little work on an organic farm in Nelson, B.C. before heading up through Calgary to our friend’s wedding in Edmonton, A.B.

Then we meander down through the Rockies and onto Vancouver Island where we could have the privilege of helping out on a therapeutic farm for homeless people. Our flight takes us to Cancún before Christmas, perhaps helping out in an eco-hostel on the beach 😀 After that Belize and Guatemala, then it’s Southbound to God knows where.

Yet with all these ideas, we cannot plan everything. Nor would we wish to. The unpredictability and openness to diverge seems to offer more in terms of opportunities for growth and a building of trust in the world.
