Sep 20, 2011 - Getting up close and personal with the Nicaraguan's!

20hours spent on a bus over 2 days, 1 Scottish traveling companion gained (Nico) 1 night spent in Tegus, one of the most dangerous cities in Honduras, all to arrive in Managua the capital of Nicaragua in rush hour.... Absolute chaos, think dodgems on speed, mixed with horn happy drivers with mental road rage! Crazy! We'd spent 7 hours on a lovely air conditioned bus watching movies and then got dropped off in the middle of a busy main road by the taxi driver who charged us double what he said would cost! then some guys tried to bungle our...

Aug 6, 2011 - Colonial town, similar to Leon, but better.

Granada 06/08/11 Colonial town, similar to Leon, but better. Leon to Granada, via Managua, capital of Nicaragua. Probably one of the easiest bus trips so far. An American had warned us about Managua, but to us it didn’t seem that bad, he said that everywhere you looked it seemed as though you would get mugged. Maybe we were in the wrong place. It was one mini bus from Leon to Managua and where we were dropped off, straight on to the next mini bus, then on to Granada. The first hostel that we had arranged to meet Mette and Randi in seemed...

Jul 11, 2011 - Granada

Granada is a fantastic start to the amazing country of Nicaragua. I had no idea that Nicaragua was so well developed and had so much to offer. Granada is a lot like Antigua as it has a very nice atmosphere, there are many to do, and the food and people here are amazing. I ended up doing a few activities including a boat tour just outside of Granada and a night hike of the Volcano called Messiah. The Volcano was especially majestic and so incredibly large. I ended up taking quite a few pictures in this city and you can see them here. Even...

Jul 8, 2011 - Central America - Guatemala

Sorry guys, I have been super slack. I had intended to write an entry in each town, but we flew through most of them so fast that I am surprised I even have photos. Thanks Karin! Guatemala After Belize we entered Guatemala. Guatemala is a very interesting country, where carrying guns appears to be legal. This means that security guards are not only every where ( main bus stops, banks, nice restaurants, children parties ) and carry big shot guns, but that you also get metal detected - kind of strange when you are getting onto a bus. These...

Chad's Travels

Jul 8, 2011 - Nicaragua

From Utila we headed to Nicaragua and thus started an epic two-day journey, which included an overnight stop in the town of Danli in Southern Honduras (Quickly: Take Danli off your list of places to go. Our catch phrase for Danli was "Get us to Nicaragua"), 1 Ferry, 3 Taxi's and 8 Buses. My favourite part of our journey was one Honduran woman who could not stop herself from staring at Nena. It was beyond hilarious watching Nena squirm as she was inspected from every angle for three of our bus legs, including the walk across the border....

Jun 2, 2011 - Jour 9- Paris Cayenne

Aujourd'hui je vais manger au restaurant Cayenne Paris pour petit-déjeuner. La nourriture était incroyable ici, je me suis nervures. Ils étaient à peu près parfaits et ils étaient de remplissage. Na pas encore fini je tout ce que j’avais. A boire tout ce que j’avais était une pina colada (sans rhum). Il a été bon et rafraichissant compte tenu de la chaleur énorme. Apres avoir fini de manger et de boire je suis allé à mon hôtel « Novotel Cayenne ». L’hôtel était correct, pourrait être mieux de et je ne faisais que passer la nuit et un peu de...

May 26, 2011 - Jour 8- French Guyane

Aujourd'hui, je vais aller faire une promenade sur les plages il ya, ce n'est pas tant que ça mais j'ai plus planifié pour plus tard. Je suis très fatigué alors je vais prendre, il est facile pour la journée. Les plages sont plus étonnantes alors que je pensais. Le sable était brun à certains endroits. il y avait même des tortues de mer sur la plage. La plus grandes des tortues que j'ai jamais vu. il a été une expérience incroyable d'être là et de voir les plages de la Guyane française.

Mar 14, 2011 - Granada

Maybe I should start writing my blog again... Now that Benedict is gone further south and I am staying a little in Nicaragua I should keep connected with the world ;) I am in Granada right now, it´s one of these uncountable nice colonial cities in Centralamerica and again a little too touristic for me.. but I don't mind, I will go to Maragalpa tomorrow anyway. Hope to find a nice Finca nearby..
