05/01/2015 I just finished the PADI Open Water Final Exam and will head out to the first two Open Water dives to 12m in a few moments! Dropping my Sony A6000 Camera yesterday and thereby smashing the lens and battery cap, I will probably not be able to find a store to get it repaired here on Utila, leaving me without pictures from now on. Just my GoPro 3 fake from China is left but the picture quality is really bad… Anyway, here are some shots from Guatemala City!
03/01/2015 It’s pretty damn early here in Honduras now and I only have twenty minutes to get this update out, so gotta keep it short again. Semuc Champey in Guatemala was another one of those things that got to my attention during my travels. It’s a series of pools in an awesome jungle between Flores and Guatemala City. Takes a while to get there, but it’s totally worth it!
01/01/2015 Happy New Year everyone! I am in the unfortunate position to be in a very very hot place with an upset stomach and can’t really enjoy it here. Hopefully tomorrow will be better when I start my PADI Open Water course! I’ll keep the update from Flores in Guatemala short.
30/12/2014 Yesterday I arrived to the currently famed “most dangerous place on earth” and my second stop in Honduras: San Pedro Sula. I was supposed to leave to the Cusuco National Park today, but due to my slight delay and a booked flight to Utila tomorrow, I decided to do it after my return from the Island in order to spend two nights in the remote jungle. I will use the extra day to check out the city today and of course update my blog, reporting “live” from Guatemala for the first time. Coming from Belize, it was obvious that I would have to stop in Tikal, one of the most famous Maya sites in Central America!
Travelling from 03/11/2014 to End of January, 2015
I wanted to get this out much sooner, but combining traveling with the planning of next stops takes a lot time; especially when we are talking about a total of eight countries! I am flying from Toronto to Cancun tomorrow morning and can now finally present my first set of ideas of what to do in Central America. Check it out if you are interested in joining me for any parts or if you can perhaps give me some advice!
