The End Of Nicaragua?

Thursday, 10 Apr 2008 | Views [1842] | Comments [1]

"Some things change" (my plans), "and some things do not" (my lack of time).  It's a strange series of events that sees me not staying in Nicaragua any longer - as I'd envisaged doing.  Due to a mix of timings, border crossings, costs, ... Read more >

Little Corn Island

Monday, 7 Apr 2008 | Views [3093]

I think I've been travelling too long.  Last night i watched the film Nottinghill and from my laughter you would think it the funniest film ever made.  Earlier in the day my dive group was circled by more reef sharks of about 3m length than i could count ... Read more >

Around Catarina

Around 3 times a week we go on activities, and a few of us have paid for extra trips too.  Butterfly and seed collecting, walks around the laguna seeing monkeys and birds, trips to nearby towns and museums, a fiesta in Masaya with lots of dancing and ... Read more >

Semana Santa

Sunday, 23 Mar 2008 | Views [1973] | Comments [1]

Nicaragua is a very religious country - the state is very much tied to the catholic church.  As such it has great laws such as no abortions - not even in the case of a raped child.  It's a common scenario here, so it's fortunate that there aren't illegal ... Read more >

A scorpion in my shower, a tarantula in my bedroom, ants in my bed, flies in my soup (seriously), 3 flea ridden, but lovable dogs, a tame wild pig that thinks it's a dog, lots of trees and wildlife including hummingbirds, woodpeckers, and bats...plus ... Read more >

I was looking forward to Granada, described by some as the jewel of Nicaragua - my first impressions aren't so good though.  A heaving market, lots of rubbish, squashed vegetables and fruit in the street, a jostling crowd dodging fume spewing vehicles, ... Read more >

Isla de Ometepe

Tuesday, 4 Mar 2008 | Views [3557]

A small island made up of two volcanoes in the middle of a big, freshwater lake that contains bull sharks - it sounds a bit surreal right? I couldn't miss the opportunity to see this place, my mistake was heading for the beach area called Santo Domingo.... Read more >

My blog is an edited, condensed account of what has happened on my trip. I miss out a lot of stuff as it's long enough already, and besides i forget a lot of things because I've been travelling a while, and most things become normal - hence not worthy ... Read more >
