About Me

My photo
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 110 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.

NICARAGUA, Big Corn Island

May 11, 2008

My plan was to take the local bus to El Rama which is 6 hrs away, then boat to Bluefields and then the next day boat for 9 hrs to Big Corn Island.

The ability to adapt to every possible situation is crucial is backpacking. The hostel owner informed me that there was a National Bus strike and no buses were leaving Managua in the foreseeable future. I took a cab back to the airport and caught a small plane directly to Big Corn Island. It was $160 that I did not anticipate spending but save me 4 days travel time so in the end it was probably for the best. I met 2 girls from New Zealand , shared a cab and found a hostel together. Tomorrow I catch the early lancha (boat) to Little Corn Island which has the best beaches, hostels and diving on the 2nd longest coral reef after the Great Barrier Reef.
