Re: Anywhere In The World, January 1st. Can Share Expenses

This is definitely of interest, especially as most of the graduate programs that I am considering are based in the UK. I have spent a fair amount of time hanging around the Mediterranean on various backpacking trips. A little more than a week around different beaches in Sardegna and some time on the Adriatic and Ionian from Albania to Croatia, although this may be out of scope of your adventure. Do you have any further information? Dates, boat, expense sharing, etc.

No matter what you do , don't drive. Central America is no longer what it was, at least in the interior.

That said, should your plans ever change, I could use a reliable couple from Oct 2017 to Sept 2018 to go from Spain/N. Africa to Japan/S.Korea via PC, west coast NA and the NP.

Rduncanson, yes, we are looking to quit around January 1st, but are a little flexible. I'll fully respond in an email.

Dauntlessny, thanks for the advice. We have plenty of people telling us the same and are weighing the risks. Luckily, we have plenty of contacts throughout Central America and plan to quickly 'pass over' a few of the countries if we end up driving instead of sailing. Your offer is really tempting. If we end up sailing, we may want to stay on the road for more than 6 months. Our primary constraint would be financial... we will only be able to save a given amount by this January, and I'm afraid we may not have enough for 18 months of sailing.

Close to home by July . Watevaworx is a Benereau 54ft new in 2011 and quite comfortable and pretty well equiped.We will be offline until the 18th of April to check replies but you could try watevaworx@my iridium.net
Good luck in your travels. Glenn
