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 125 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.

HONDURAS, Copan Ruinas

Wednesday July 21, 2010

"During the Classic period (AD 250-900), the city at Copan Ruinas culturally dominated the region for centuries. The architecture is not as grand as Tikal's but the city produced remarkable sculptures and hieroglyphics. Its culture was so developed, it is often labeled the 'Paris of the Maya world '."   Lonely Planet


HONDURAS, Utila, Great Diving on North Shore

July 15, 2010

Just realized the last 2 posts were dated June. While backpacking days of the week don't mean a thing and obviously the months are not too important either. Dove the North Shore of Utila today and went down to 110 feet, a new personal best for me. It was like swimming in a box of crayons with all the wonderful colors of fish and coral. No Whale Sharks today but maybe later.

HONDURAS, Utila, (home of cheap diving)

Saturday  July 10, 2010

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.
