    As the end of my seemingly neverending PhD study draws nearer my travel plans become more refined. If all goes well I will defend my thesis in September or early October and then leave for Canada in mid October. Wish me luck.

    Today I ordered the first batch of Lonely Planet guidebooks for my trip: Alaska, California & Colombia. There is a 30% discount at the moment, so the timing is good. I also realized that no new edition of the Central America guide will be released until end of this year, so I’ll use the one I got. However, there is a brand new edition of South America on a Shoestring coming out in two months.
