I imagine Tikal and Copan are on the itinerary. I'm envious, since those are on my bucket list.
Have a great trip!
(Oh and don't misspell Cincinnati around here...the natives can be touchy about that)
Tikal and Copan are part of my itinerary!
I've been to some sketchy places before in Africa and Europe but i can't remember being as nervous as am about visiting some of the places especially Honduras and more particularly San Pedro Sula.
Haha noted about Cincinnati, i should know how to spell it by now i've done enough research on the place in the last month or so.
You are never too old to go backpacking, i travelled around for 6 months in 2010 and meet plenty of older travellers, some of which had plenty more up and go compared to me.
