In Loving Memory of Manuel Fernando Sanchez Gamboa (1990 - 2015), without you this website would not be possible.

Planning Collage


How do we plan for a trip of this magnitude? Do we even bother planning? How much is it going to cost? What do we do with our belongings? Will we find work when we get back? Where do we visit? What do we take? Are we going to be safe? Are we going to stay healthy? How do we get into countries with difficult visa requirements?

These are some of the more popular questions we have heard and we continue to struggle answering them for ourselves. Why do we care to answer these questions, instead of just leaving? Well, we are both big planners, to a point that the use of structure and organization is part of our everyday lives. Therefore, the thought of dropping our secure and rigid lifestyles to a world of unknown and flexibility will be difficult, as you will see in this section as we make planning decisions for our adventure.

As you will see, we've compensated by proposing an itinerary and a budget, but understanding that choices will be made along the way. We have taken the precautions of researching any visa requirements, vaccines and medications we may need, medical insurance, gear we will take, and cultural experiences that will require prior planning. We hope that this section can provide some answers to the planning phase of our journey and help others that may face similar challenges in planning long term travel.

As for the questions of what we will do when we get back... that is yet to be determined...
