About Me

My photo
My life's purpose is best described by: Be the change you want to see in the world: Gandhi. Smiling is my "botox"-FORGET THE DRUGS AND SURGERY. I spice up my life, not my diet, which is SIMPLY DELICIOUS on its own. KISS: I Keep it simple sugars-from whole, fresh, ripe, raw, organic fruits (veggies,some nuts/seeds too). The 811rv motto is: simplicity at mealtime, variety throughout the year. My motto is: I live in my own little world, but it's ok they all know me there. At some point, you have to realize that some people can stay in your heart, but not in your life.

Global Gypsy Travels

Honduras on the beach for 3 months.
First on my itinerary of travels is minding a small beach front hotel, during its rainy season closure, for a friend in Honduras. The location is stunning;however, some adjusting is needed. Unfortunately, my partner and I are here during the rainy/hurricane season. In fact, we just missed hurricane Paula by the skin of our teeth. I've never been in a hurricane prone area during the season, so experiencing the strong winds and blowing rains has been a little concerning. Nonetheless, the winds keep the normally very hot caribbean weather much cooler and I prefer feeling the cool ocean winds to the stifling, stagnant heat.

With regards to my food necessities, I quickly found the local fruit and veggie market. I've been feasting on the best rambutans I've ever had for peanuts. Organic food has been difficult, if not impossible to find. The selection, in general, is not as good either in choice or quality as Costa Rica. I must say, that I'm very spoiled in CR in that regard. I've also discovered the local fruit truck that will deliver to the door every week.

Honduras is nice, but some things are disappointing. Normally, the beach here is pretty clean, but the seasonal rains and winds have brought up much plastic and other rubbish onto the beach, which makes the water unswimmable and the beach unwalkable even during calm, clear days. I'm so used to CR's pristine beaches that this has been quite a shock for me. Local culture is still in the habit of littering. The hotel owner pays for the beach to be cleaned up once the weather clears up, but that won't be until December at least. We will hopefully get a few weeks to enjoy the cleaned beach before we leave.

I'll post pics soon once I upload them.

Living life with no regrets, Via.

Hey Via! It sounds like you're really experiencing some great traveling, even if you're not impressed with Honduras. I'd love to hear more about what Costa Rica is like as I've heard mixed reviews.

Furthermore, I'd like to thank you for sharing a link to my website on the side of your blog. Had I know earlier I would have done the same for you on my website, as I just noticed today that someone reached my website from yours.

Enjoy your health.
