After my last Ph.D. trip post suggestions came rolling in. Friends had wonderful suggestions and we came up with a short list.
1. Patagonia (The W Circuit), Chile - The NY Times had a great article last year on Patagonia and ever since then it has been on my dream trip list. Read Patagonia in a New Light here.
2. Belize - Belize is one of those rare places where you can go to the beach or sea kayaking one day and the next be in the jungle.
3. Sea of Cortez, Mexico - Start from La Paz and sea kayak around the islands in the Sea of Cortez.
4. Machu Picchu, Peru - This is the classic four day trek from Cuzco, Peru to the Machu Picchu ruins. Stay tuned for our final decision and an exciting detailed itinerary.
