I arrived in Puerto Natales and will start a five day hike in Torres del Paine tomorrow! The weather looks good and I can’t wait to have a walk without pouring rain all day long like the last one to Cabo Froward near Punta Arenas. As mentioned earlier, I finished two videos while crossing the Drake Passage to Antarctica and this is the second one. Honduras had a lot to offer and I especially liked the Tucan that tried to steal my Marshmellows in Macaw Mountain and of course, my very first diving sessions in Utila! Hope you like the video 🙂
19/02/2015 I just came back from four amazing days cruising through the San Blas Islands and am really happy to get all the salt and sand off my body now! This last update from Honduras is probably my smallest ever, covering the capital and close by Santa Lucia.
16/02/2015 After coming back from the carnival in Pedasí, I had a great last night in Panama City yesterday thanks to the company of amazing people. It is 4AM in the morning now and I will be heading towards Carti shortly to start the four day cruise through the San Blas Islands, eventually getting me to Sapzurro in Colombia. Thankfully the next update is a short one, featuring PANACAM Lake Yojoa in Honduras.
13/02/2015 Panama City has been a pleasant surprise so far after checking out Casco Viejo, the Miraflores locks and Amador Causeway, all of which I can only recommend! Today marks the beginning of the carnival season here in Panama and I will head town to the Las Tablas area to celebrate it. This update features Lake Yojoa in Honduras. I still can’t pronounce the name correctly, but can certainly summarize that I had a great time exploring the area without a guide.
09/02/2015 I just came back from the Cangilones de Gualaca, close to David in Panama, and am so happy to finally use my climbing shoes again! You should check out that place, it’s a mini canyon just perfect for deep water bouldering. This update has a relation to water as well, featuring Utila and my PADI Open Water Course there. I even saw a little shipwreck on the second fun dive, pretty cool 🙂
06/02/2015 This morning I was woken up by the rain penetrating my tent here in Boquete, Panama. Maybe I need to find another place after all 🙂 The following update will propably be the shortest ever, I just didn’t want to mix it up with the next one covering Utila. So even if it’s just a few pictures, I hope you will still enjoy the views from San Pedro Sula’s very own “Hollywood Hill”; or in this case “Coca Cola Hill” 🙂
04/02/2015 Seems like I was one of the first people to ever walk the brand new El Tigre Trek into Corcovado National Park, due to open this Thursday! We saw a lot of animals, including a Coral Snake, and didn’t even had to pay the 15$ entrance fee because of the fact that the trail is not open yet. This is the 2nd part of my Copan Ruinas Update, now actually reporting from the Maya ruins giving the town it’s name. Oh, and you will also see a lot of Scarlet Macaws again 🙂 Have to keep it short though because I got a boat to catch in a few minutes!
02/02/2015 I am just about to head into Corcovado National Park to our Lodge in the jungle. Since their website states that they don’t even have electricity over there, I figured to give you guys another update while I am waiting for the bus in Puerto Jimenez. Actually it’s the very first one from Honduras! Coming in from Guatemala, the first town on my route was beautiful Copan Ruinas, named after the very close by Maya ruins. On my first day there, I started off with a really cool activity: visiting the Macaw Mountain with their amazing display of Parrots, Tucans, Macaws and other birds 🙂
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!
