After a really long day on the boat and bus to La Ceiba yesterday, I finally made it to Utila. Roatan is the more touristy island in Honduras and the beaches are more beautiful and the diving is a little better, but Utila is the backpackers haven. With lodging and food less than half of that on Roatan it was an easy decision. For $185 US you get 10 dives and a free bed in a dorm at one of the dive shops. I opted for a private room at Hotel Seaside with private bath for only $10 nightly. Free wifi and hammocks on the 2nd floor overlooking the Caribbean were bonuses. Food is very cheap compared Belize.

- After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 100 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.
