Long Distance Laura
In August 2008, I left my job and flew to Seattle to embark on a 6-week cycle ride down the West Coast of the USA, with a group of 15 people, finishing in San Diego.
I made my way to La Paz, Mexico, for a week of sea kayaking, and then continued my travels in South Mexico, Belize and Guatemala, before flying home for Christmas.
In January, I set off again for Tanzania to take on a 3-month volunteer project, teaching in a rural village in the West Usambara Mountains, before travelling around the country for a further month. I flew home on 1st May 2009.
I hope you enjoy reading about my adventures!
