I'm going backpacking again this year to South America, where the plan is to leave in May to fly to Buenos Aires, travel across Argentina to the west coast and work my way up through Chile, Bolivia, Peru (Inca Trail, Machu Picchu) and Columbia before making my way back down the Amazon and leaving from Rio to fly to Barcelona, where I'll see the sights before going to Madrid and then home. Excited but also pooping my pants a bit.


That sounds awesome, I am green with jealousy and as long as you're the one doing your own washing, I think that reaction is expected/allowed.

We chose December to a) avoid hurrican season/too hot weather but early enough to avoid Christmas there and be back in plenty of time for it.

To be honest we're looking most forward to doing absolutely f-all and have paid a little extra to ensure the room/resort is all-encompassing.

I'm sure she'd tell you its me that would need the extra card...




Few resorts that I have experienced have been as all-encompassing as Cancun If you're staying in the resort for the week and don't intend to stray too far, someone will probably suggest a trip to the market (think it was called Market 47 or something like that) in the old town. My advice is don't. There's nothing in it that you can't get for the same price in the resort, plus there are quite a few dodgy characters hanging around it who tend to follow you around paying close attention to what you're buying. If you do want to get out of the resort for the day, then check out Xcaret and make sure you stay for the incredible show they put on in the evening

Taking the little uns on their first holiday abroad this year. Going to Corfu for two weeks in October (so it's not too hot for them!) and really looking forward to it.

As for anything else I'm not sure, I'm toying with the idea of spending a few days just outside London somewhere so I can go into London and visit Legoland/Windsor Castle etc.

I've done that drive a few times, I'd definitely recommend taking in a bit more of California if you can take the time out. The drive from LA to San Francisco is lovely, some nice spots in wine country, we stayed in Solvang for a bit. From San Francisco we drove over to Lake Tahoe and down to Yosemite which is amazing, definitely recommend it. A lot of driving and motel 6-ing but it's great.

Hotel wise in Vegas, I've stayed at The Bellagio, The Venetian, both cracking hotels but expensive and the Luxor and the Trump tower(?) which are at opposite ends of the strip and a bit lower down class wise but still nice.

New York is New York, always great.

Sounds like a great trip, well jealous.

After that Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon with a drive up through Death Valley to Yosemite for a few more nights till we fly back again from San Fran.
