Wow can't believe the response on this!!

Welcome All. Glad to see some different Nationalities and some folks in their 30's. :D

Has anyone been to Central America before? Is there a Lonely Planet as I have not been able to find one!

Edna, my Rucksack is a biggie either 60lt or 70lt.....but I might take a smaller one as I think this trip has lots of Public Transport Travel and on a Previous Trip to China, we had to carry our Rucksacks for a whole Tube Journey :D

Hey all,

How's everyone doing? I've had my vaccinations this week - so most definetely counting down now!

Amy, sounds like my 50l bag will be ok, I'm going to have to be so disciplined with my packing, I've never backpacked before, so I think the packing is going to be a challenge for me! What flight are you going on? I'm on the AA flight via JFK on the way out and via Dallas on the way back, I'm wondering what time is everyone arriving? If the majority of us are getting in late, we could consider asking G to move the timing of the meetup?

2 months to go guys! :-)

Hi Edna

I think we are arriving the day before but my friend has the flight details.

We've been attending Spanish class for the last 4 week, just to get a little bit under our belt...which has been fun and getting us in the mood, however I am sure it will all escape from my brain before I get there or I'll be too shy to use it.

Pack light, you won't regret it....and more room for Souvenirs!

Buenos dias Amy, (that's the limit of my spanish I'm afraid!)

I'm arriving around 10pm on the 18th, so will be missing the meet up, if you guys are still up, it'd be great to meet you!

Only 5 more sleeps for me! Have a good flight and see you out there! :-)

Hi Edna, unfortunately Amy isn't coming any more, I'm her friend, jess and am going to be travelling alone! So I'll see you when you arrive on 18th! Have a safe trip :)
