Tegucigalpa: Given a Guided Tour

Days 111 & 112 – Sunday 8th & Monday 9th January 2006 After a sound sleep and a hearty breakfast we were ready to be shown about the capital city of Honduras. Carlos began by taking us to a viewpoint looking out over the city towards the airport. The city sprawls across a valley, reaching [...]

Tegucigalpa: Travel Day

Day 110 – Saturday 7th Janaury 2006 6am. That was the time that the only ferry to mainland Honduras left from Utila. So it was that after 4 hours sleep we found ourselves bleary eyed and wandering the 500m or so to the ferry terminal. We boarded and waited around, and the ferry eventually set [...]

Utila: The Black Rats Break Up

Days 108 & 109 – Thursday 5th & Friday 6th January 2006 The problem with impromptu drinking is the inevitable hangover. Lately I have been suffering from pretty bad hangovers and I am not sure why. Still, even though I had a hangover the Caribbean still beats going to work!

Utila: Roy the Scuba Diver

La Ceiba: New Year

Day 104 – Sunday 1st January 2006 New Years Day is a public holiday in Honduras and as such the boats to Utila were not running. We were therefore forced to spend a day in La Ceiba. It wasn´t much of a scenic town, and one of us being much in the mood to lay [...]

La Ceiba: Travelling for the New Years Party

Day 103 – Saturday 31st December 2005 Although the village of Omoa was chilled and very pretty, it seemed a little too quiet a place to spend New Year´s Eve. Therefore after a quick breakfast we caught a serires of buses to the town of La Ceiba. This actually took the majority of the day, [...]

Omoa: Honduras Beach Town

Day 102 – Friday 30th December 2005 After an indifferent nights´ sleep I woke up early with no real plans for the day. I had a few problems getting hold of cash, so I was forced to change up my emergency dollar fund of $30 until I could get to a bigger bank in a [...]
