Hi everyone, thanks for checking out my blog! As many of you know, I will be starting Med school @ St. George's University in Grenada this Fall. In order to get there, I have decided to go on a backpacking adventure to the southernmost, isthmian portion of the North American continent. I have booked a flight to Guatemala City on July 5th (it's gonna be a rough flight) and a flight from Panama City to St. George, Grenada on August 12th where I will stay till Christmas.
What will happen in those 38 days and how I will get from Guatemala to Panama is yet to be determined. My ideal itinerary is to travel north from Guatemala to Belize (try to get scuba certified!) and hitchike/chicken-bus my way south. To give you an idea, here is my proposed route: Guatemala to Belize to Honduras to El Salvador to Nicaragua to Costa Rica to Panama to Grenada!
