Oh, hello there.

Yuck.

It’s been too long friends! I’m back from my travels and plan on sharing a few stories from my trip but even that is taking me a while so I  thought I’d reach out now (before I procrastinate even longer!).

… I wanted to know what you guys would be interested in reading about? Travel? Thrift shopping? DIYS? Personal details about my life that you shouldn’t care about but you do because we’re all morbidly curious creatures?!

PLEASE let me know :D

I guess I should include something else, here are three photos of me from my trip:

MONTEVERDE, COSTA RICA

SAN FRANCISCO

Thanks for sticking around guys, it’s been a while.

Ometepe Island

DSC_0029We stayed on Ometepe Island for four days. What was supposed to only be a short stay kept getting extended as we seemed to be too lazy to pack our bags and journey on. To get to this island we took a chicken bus and a taxi that took us to the Ometepe ferry. This ferry was one of the most intense boat rides I had ever been on. SO rocky and wet. I get extreme motion sickness so I had to put on the seabands and pop some Gravol. The Gravol was necessary but it just screwed up the rest of the day – couldn’t be bothered to do anything other than nap. Our first day on the island was a bit of a write off as we were exhausted and we mostly napped. We walked around a bit, had dinner and hung out at the hostel for the rest of the night.

The next day, we were determined to go see something. We took a bus without much planning and the destination we had in mind was unattainable without an expensive taxi. We just explored the town of Altogracia and bussed back to where we were staying in Mayogalpa. We came back and had dinner in a hotel restaurant where we got our information for the volcano hike we had planned (more on that one later).

The sunsets in Mayogalpa were breathtaking. There were many people sitting around, drinking beers and admiring the views.

All in all, Ometepe Island was a very chill and beautiful place with many friendly faces. The most memorable aspect of the trip was our climb up Volcan Maderas…I will be sharing the story tomorrow.
