The Plan

Hello dear friend, and welcome to INTL.LOL, a little home on the web for Maja and I while we are traveling.

I think it best to start with our plan. The first (long) leg of our 2016 trip is intentionally loosey-goosey, but when mapped it looks something like this:


We’ve started by leaving Portland and San Francisco though NYC, jetting down to St Martin. We plan to work our way around the Caribbean islands before heading back to the mainland through Belize. We’ll then head down to South America through Panama. This is where it starts to get a even more hazy.

We really want to see Quito, Lima, and Santiago. We’ll likely then head to Buenos Aires for a little while before heading back up South America to Brazil. From Brazil, we’ll fly to Cape Town for what will likely be a few weeks. We’ll then head up to upper Africa and eventually tour around South Europe before arriving in Copenhagen for most of July. Here’s a (totally incomplete) list of places we’d love to visit in the months we’d be there:

March – April: Central America

  • St. John’s
  • St. Bart’s
  • Grenada
  • St. Lucia
  • Trinidad & Tobago
  • Barbados
  • Bahamas
  • Belize
  • Panama

April – May: South America

  • Quito
  • Galapagos
  • Lima
  • La Paz
  • Santiago
  • Buenos Aires
  • Rio
  • São Paulo

May – June: Africa/Mid East

  • Cape Town
  • Johannesburg
  • Nairobi
  • Cairo
  • Tel Aviv
  • Marrakech/Casablanca

June – July – South Europe

  • Porto

  • Barcelona
  • Marseille
  • Nice
  • Monaco
  • Naples
  • Palermo
  • Amalfi Coast

  • Sardinia
  • Split
  • Dubrovnik
  • Copenhagen

At the end of July, we’ll be returning to the west coast of the United States for a few weddings and to plan the remainder of the trip, which will include mostly Japan, China, SE Asia, and India.

Along the way we’ll be posting plenty of photos and stories, so feel free to follow along.
