Diving in Barefoot: Scuba Diving Roatan with Barefoot Cay thumbnail

Five days in Roatan flew by. And while compiling my notes and photos for a post about my time there, I had to admit that quite frankly, I didn’t squeeze much into them. I could blame the weather, or my partner-in-crime Rika (with whom I was too busy gossiping and giggling to be bothered to leave… Read more

Returning to Roatan thumbnail

It may not seem possible to those that are following along with my seemingly never-ending coverage from this adventure, but my four months in Central America felt like they truly flew by. As my plane touched down in Roatan, it felt like just yesterday that I’d landed in Managua. It was a meaningful place to end… Read more

Which Honduran Island: Utila or Roatan? thumbnail

We were really leaning towards Cuba but in… Read more

Getting From Roatan to Utila: Sailing in Style thumbnail

Okay so we didn’t really have all those other choices in order to get from Roatan to Utila. I mean, we could have taken the sea ferry back to the mainland and then out to Utila, but it… Read more

A Two Wheel Tour of Roatan thumbnail

When I travel, I look forward to seeing. Not just the big sites in guidebooks, not just the beautiful beaches and the hailed natural wonders. I like to see everything; the energy and mood, the roadside stands, the way people live. It’s the things you can’t really discern from a book or a picture. I like… Read more

Diving Roatan thumbnail

We woke up the morning of our dives feeling sick and miserable. After the beach the night before we came back to our new home for the week and discovered our hosts were having a barbeque. Perfect, instant friends! We were greeted warmly and treated like old pals, reminding me again why I love the traveling… Read more
