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...

Jun 28, 2011 - If I ever get out of here... i can make it anywhere Wagga Wagga

Bevare! Bevare! The black hole lurking at the centre of our galaxy is closer than we think how else to describe the inertia that has kept me Leon bound for so long!

When i did a search expedia.com it looked up Managua and surrounding vicinity......i was tired and i liked the look of the place and i paid...when i was noting down the details the address was listed as Granada....i thought the name is Spa Granada...that's it..BUT NO it actually is...

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 5- passer la nuit dans mon lit oncles et petit dejeuner a Granada

Aujourd'hui, je suis passé la journée à mon lit et petit déjeuner oncles appelé "Casa Silas". Son nom est Rob Keddy et il a déménagé de St.Catherines à Grenade, au Nicaragua il ya quelques années. Son lit et le petit déjeuner est pittoresque, mais belle, comme une maison loin de maison. Il est un artiste et il connaît son très bien l'espagnol. il nomma le Bed and Breakfast Casa Silas en raison de son chien "Silas". Dans le centre du bâtiment, il y a une piscine que j'ai trouvée très rafraîchissant, car il est à l'extérieur si chaud. J'ai...

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..

Feb 23, 2011 - Nicaragua & Costa Rica

NICARAGUA (Days 32 – 41) GRANADA We said our goodbyes to Chloe and Jason and hopped on the bus to Nicaragua, to Granada. We had decided to skip Honduras, mainly due to budget and time constraints, and considering that we weren’t going to scuba dive there, it made sense to (unfortunately) leave it out... We arrived in Managua at 5pm, having left San Salvador at 6am, but our journey wasn’t finished yet. After finding the right bus we were finally on our way to Granada. We arrived at around 8pm and made our way to Oasis Hostel for a well...

Dec 22, 2010 - Granada

We reluctantly left El Castillo, catching the 6.00am boat back upstream to San Carlos where we headed to the bus station. Here we were immediately surrounded by hordes of people, all noisily trying to persuade us to get on their bus. It was a six hour journey to Juigalpa for an overnight stay then on to Granada via the shortest possible stop in Managua. From what little we saw Managua was big, crowded, dirty and noisy, so Granada was an absolute delight by comparison. Originally built by the Spanish in 1524 as an important trading town on...

Oct 27, 2010 - Nicaragua

Going to keep this one brief as we have found an internet cafe. So we made our way to Granada where we found monkey style ziplining galore!! With our host Jose (this name features a lot it seems) aka Jackie Chan!!! We zoomed through 17 zip lines hanging upside down like monkeys/more like buddha for me, superman style where you get upclose and personal with your guide, AWESOME!!! Spent the afternoon enjoying the highlights of walking around Grenada which is an endless maze of markets, all selling the same thing, who knows what deal is best!...

Oct 22, 2010 - If in doubt believe the 12 year old

Time for our first border crossing experience! Definitely an experience! Especially considering how fluent we both are in Spanish! Fortunately we met Jose who pretty much saved our lives - well atleast saved us a few hours! The key to border crossings is definitely grab yourself a spaniard - especially one who seems to have been taken under the wing of a local to get them through. So we weaved our way through the hectic border ´system´ of the Costa Rica/Nicaraguan border, continung to say no gracias as everyone tried to make us buy forms or...

Oct 14, 2010 - Granada - Nicaragua

October 14, 2010 On the 12th I drove to a little dust town called ‘Las Penitas’ on the pacific coast for a day trip. I stopped at a bar/restaurant/hotel and had breakfast. I felt I had to by something cuz I had to leave my riding gear some where. I forget the name of the place but it was owned by an American couple. I walked up and down the beach then went back to the bar to get my gear. I met an older British guy and he gave me some tips on how to get across the Darien Gap. It was interesting. His stories I mean. Ha ha ha. I forgot my...
