Honduras Summary

Friday, January 7th, 2011

When travelling through Central America you hear horror stories about the next country which made me quite apprehensive entering each country, particularly Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras. By South America this had worn off and even though even a Bolivian motorbike and race car driver said that Paraguay was too dangerous for even him to […]

Casa Alianza, Honduras

Friday, April 17th, 2009

I managed to ride into the Tegucigalpa and find Casa Alianza only stopping to ask directions once which I was pretty pleased about. When I got there Juan the director gave me an overview of the organisation’s programs with the help of Lucy (a Hungarian volunteer) translating. Casa Alianza have between 160-180 street children in […]

Sleep helps Sanity and Banking Bothers

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

I checked into an ‘expensive’ hotel with a toilet that doesn’t flush and a cold, leaky shower because I wanted wireless internet so I could sort out the fact that Barclays will no longer allow me to log into my online account with this stupid card reader and I won’t be able to until I […]

The Case of the Missing Tourist Bus

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

I am suppose to be going to to be going to Tegucigalpa (capital city of Honduras) to see Casa Alianza and I have been worrying about riding into the city for the last couple of days. I am really scared that I will get lost and end up in a bad part of the city. […]

Hot Springs and Really Great Riding

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

I reckon that Honduras is my favorite country in Central America for riding. Most of the roads are in fairly good condition (except for just north of the border crossing El Poy) and there is almost no traffic. The countryside is lovely and green reminding me of Northland in New Zealand. Every time I stop […]

This will be the last Mayan ruins that I go to on this trip. Copan in Honduras was apparently the artistic and learning centre of the Mayan world.

Recognised and Deformed

Sunday, April 12th, 2009

While we were at the brewery my friend Sarah whispered to me that a couple that had just arrived were talking about me. I was worried that they might have realised that I was wearing a bra rather than my bikini top! But it turns out that it was a fellow biker who had been […]

Bananas are Boys

Saturday, April 11th, 2009

Bananas are actually the stem of the banana plant and the actual fruit is produced by the female flowers. The four of us went to Lago de Yojoa to spend a couple of days at a micro brewery that does fruit beers. One of the days we hiked around the coffee and banana plantation to […]

Alfombras, Comayagua, Honduras

Friday, April 10th, 2009

After the re-enactment of last supper on Thursday night the townspeople of Comayagua started making the carpets of sawdust called Alfombras which would form the path of the parade on Good Friday. The carpets were finished for about an hour before they were walked over. The parade stops at the 13 stations of the cross […]

Quatro Amigos

Thursday, April 9th, 2009

When I was in Utila couch surfing I met three other females that are travelling by themselves and as one of them had her destination planned and accommodation booked, myself and two French Canadian girls decided to tag along for a few days. It has been good for all of us as it meant that […]
