Four-month Solo Central & South America Journey
Fellow female travel blogger Barbara Weibel is in the early stages of her four-month journey trekking through Mexico, Central and South America. Her adventure launched from Mazatlan the end of February followed with a visit to Baja, Mexico. She’s planning on riding the train through Mexico’s remote Copper Canyon and spending time with the reclusive Tarahumara Indians.
Barbara is now in La Paz, Mexico. She’s vowed not to travel by plane but by using busses, boats, trains and other means for getting from point A to B. (Makes me wonder, is she preparing for the Amazing Race?) When not being hosted by resorts, she’s planning on staying in hostels and couch-surfing, which is a fabulous way to get an authentic taste of everyday life.
Those wishing to travel along vicariously with her can check out her Hole in the Donut travel blog or follow her on Twitter (@holeinthedonut). She’s also uploading videos to her YouTube channel and be sure to check out the cliff divers of Mazatlan clip. Wow!
I met Barbara during the inaugural Travel Blog Exchange gathering in Chicago last summer. We sat at the same table and discovered we lived the next town over from each other! Small world, considering there were more than 100 travel bloggers at the event.
Happy travels, Barbara!
