It’s that time again. Time to pack my bag, leave my job, and catch a plane to destinations unknown.
Tomorrow is my last day of work at my day job, and Saturday is my last shift at the part-time job. Tuesday I hop aboard a one-way ticket to Guatemala City and Central America at large, but with no idea where I’ll head from there. For the first 2.5 weeks I’ll be traveling with my brother – a trip that I’ve owed him ever since he graduated high school – but once he leaves I’m on my own. No plans, no directions, no return date. I’ll be living full and traveling slow, and coming back when the money runs out or my new job prospect needs me on board. Whichever comes first.
As with my last long trip, I’ll be keeping a steady flow of pictures and updates about my journey here.
There was a time when December 10th seemed much too far away – and now it seems too soon!
Safe travels, Ben. Look after your little brother!
Thank god I still follow your blog sir. Congrats and I am sorry we didn’t hang out more before you left. I hope you have a blast and don’t get arrested in some central american country. I see that happen all the time on the discovery channel and it never turns out well 😉 Although the opportunities to sell the book and movie rights to your story could be a bonus. Ummmm, hows about: “Good luck and may you only get arrested if you want a good story to tell when you get out.”
No matter what happens I am looking forward to following your adventures here.
Thank god I still follow your blog sir. Congrats my friend and I am only sorry that we didn’t hang out more before you left. Don’t go getting arrested and put in some funky central american prison. From what I have seen on those discovery channel specials it never turns out well. Of course you could always use it as a great hook to sell the book and movie rights of your travels. Ummm, how about: ” Good luck and may you only get arrested if you want to have a good story to tell us when you get back!”
Either way I look forward to reading about your adventures and looking at all of those pictures you put up here.
P.S. I sent you a text, but don’t know if you deactivated your phone yet.
