I recently returned from a 125 day trek through most all of europe and morocco. For those who want to see what it is like feel free to check out my site:  http://frankwaddell.forumup.com/index.php?mforum=frankwaddell
 
You have to register to view the videos, but not to see my journal and all the photos. Feel free to register and post, it’s free.
 
For those who are thinking about taking a trip like mine, Do it!!! Don’t talk yourself out of it! And don’t take one of those Contiki tour type things. Solo or with a few friends, is the way to go. You’ll learn a lot more that way. And you will meet tons of people. Thanks to this site, for helping me in my planning. Cheers.

Looks like you put an awful lot of work into your site.  Great photos-I’m jealous.  I’ve only had time to look at it briefly for now, but highly recommend it to everyone.

Thanks, I did put a lot of work into it. I used to joke with my brother that if i didn’t have this site i would have been able to hit up a few more countries. It took a lot of time out of my day while i was travelling, but it was important for me to have a detailed journal and tons of photos for my family to see what i was doing while over there. 
 
By the time I made it to Morocco i was tired of updating the photos and didn’t finish uploading thoses pics till yesterday. I don’t want to spoil it for new travelers, but i think the site would help people figure out what all the different cities/countries are like. Cheers, Frank

If it prevents just one person from asking “where should I go?” we will all be greatful!

Yeah, no LatinTrip.com yet that I know of.  But I think now that your travel balls have dropped you don’t quite need a dedicated website to plan your trip.  Central America is a lot like Europe, except less tourist infrastructure, a little more dangerous, all in Spanish, a little cheaper, and buses instead of trains.  A good guide book and some spanish should be about all you need.  Footprint guides are famed to be the best for C.A. and S.A.  I’ve been dreaming of Mexico and Belize for quite a while now, I just can’t make up my mind which continent to travel next.
