My family (my husband and me, both 50, and our 12 year old son) are embarking upon seven months of travel throughout South America, Indonesia, SE Asia, and China and Tibet. We are looking forward to communicating with other intrepid travelers through Thorn Tree, in the planning stages and during our trip. We leave Feb 1 and return Sept 7, 2010. Our time is roughly divided into 4 months in South America and 3 months in Asia. We live in Palo Alto, California; I'm a local girl and my husband is British. Up to now, we've traveled many times to Mexico, and especially love Chiapas and the Yucatan. We've also been to Costa Rica, Canada, Japan, the UK and most countries in central Europe. We love camping and road trips. We're looking forward to honing our Spanish in South America, and to getting to know local people and other travelers we meet along the way. As our son will be away from school, we'll be looking for opportunities for him to socialize and play with other children. We hope to meet other Thorn Tree adventure travelers along our path!
