There’s something comforting about going to an airport. It might sound weird but we’ve missed them in the last year! Having only flown once (to Cuba) we were strangely buzzing for our long haul flight. It was also made a lot more comfortable by the fact that the premium economy tickets were cheaper than the … Continue reading Surprise visit home!
The cat's out of the bag now - we made a surprise trip home! Yes there was a reason we were heading to Costa Rica with quite some pace and that was specifically a 1st of January flight from San Jose to London. So on Boxing day (not really celebrated in Central America) we headed … Continue reading Enjoying the Last of the Sun
We were very much on the hunt for some signs of life for Christmas. It’s a time for family and being together so whilst we absolutely love remote camping spots, we decided this wasn’t the time of year for it. Also we didn’t want to be the ones cooking our Christmas dinner! With that in … Continue reading A Very Sunny Christmas
Apologies once again for the time between our posts - it does seem like driving down by the coast has a bit of a negative effect on our productivity! Despite having more free time lazying by the sea, we do become more lazy… and also have much less to talk about. For better or for … Continue reading 3 Borders in one day and hunting a Christmas plan!
Our first night in El Salvador did provide us with gorgeous views of the three surrounding volcanos, and also a chance to cool off with the altitude. We were planning on hiking one of the volcanoes the following morning however as Annie wasn’t feeling too well with a chesty cough we didn’t think hiking to … Continue reading Wave Hunting in El Salvador
Apologies for the radio silence on our end. We’ve been thoroughly enjoying a break from the internet in a small coastal surf town called El Paredon. It was our next destination after the volcano hike and Antigua we truly felt it was time to warm up, so we did the 2 hour drive to the … Continue reading 12 Days of Lazing and into El Salvador!
As a warning this post contains the highlight of our trip so far. Thank you Guatemala! Antigua was once the capital of Guatemala, and now stands testament to the beautiful colonial architecture which once thrived here. It’s unfortunate to say but a lot of the cities we’ve passed through - not least Guatemala city - … Continue reading Antigua and Seeing a Volcano Erupt!
‘The most beautiful place I’ve been to in the world’ was just one of the recommendations we personally got about Semuc Champey. A set of blue pools set in the midst of the jungle, we didn’t encounter anyone who had been and didn’t enjoy it. So we decided it would be worth the gruelling drive … Continue reading Experiencing the Rainy Season in Semuc Champey
We crossed the border into Guatemala and sent about doing the usual ‘new country chore list’. Getting the sim card, doing the big shop, getting the car insurance. Luckily for us, the border crossing was quick and smooth and so was our chore list. The only hiccup was that we couldn’t buy insurance until a … Continue reading Country number 8 – Our first week in Guatemala
We made it to Central America! It felt like a big milestone for us on one hand, but on the other how different could these sets of countries be? We thought we’d have experienced the biggest culture on the border of Mexico to the US, but we were to be proven wrong.To be fair to … Continue reading A Fleeting Visit – 1 Week in Belize
