Every new beginning comes from some other beginnings end

Being alone in a place you don’t want to be on your last day of travelling, after months of happiness and love in the most remarkable settings, paints everything in shades of grey. San José is one of the most unpleasant city I have been in, not to offend any of its inhabitants. Not only…

Closing in, turning tables, the beginning of the end; Nicaragua

The amount of positive critique you come across about Nicaragua is generally connected with money; it’s soooo cheap. And I guess that is true in a sense but that’s mostly because the rest of Central America really isn’t that cheap, not as cheap as what I usually compare to; India or Nepal. But still, one…

Dangerzone!

To travel through Honduras and El Salvador is really an ordinary experience; disregarding their less than flattering reputations. Reading up on the countries online usually includes crime- and murder rates, drug trafficking and ordinary gang violence. Honduras is home to 6 out of the 10 most “dangerous” cities in the world. Dangerous indeed; I had…

Old and new friends in Guatemala

Last week I left the sweet fields of Guatemala, and if I though I would have vacation these weeks, I must admit I thought wrong. Guatemala is one of the most diverse countries I’ve ever visited, specially regarding the size of it! From Pacific to Caribbean, from Mexico to El Salvador, this little miniature world…

Borderlife

At the present, in Guatemala. As with all these countries I’m about to visit I know fairly little of this one too, except that it’s supposed to be nice. And so far – it is nice! The last week in Mexico was split between San Cristobal de las Casas and the ancient ruins of Palenque….

Life at the Bosque village and the thoughts it produces

The ideal living is supposedly easy, isn’t it? Back to the roots, they say, back to the easy living. Well, life here in the Bosque Village, the permacultural farm which I am currently staying at outside of a small town, Erongaricuaro, is at the present quite calm and carefree. But that’s cause most of the…

Departure – arrival!

Preparation is maybe both the most and the least necessary stage of life. To be prepared often makes things easier, but the preparation itself can never prepare you for the real life experience anyway. With this city, the Mexican capital, the ancient Aztec Tenochtitlan, I wasn’t any more prepared than I had been playing Civilization…

Booking and hosting

One more weekend has passed since last entry, oh these days are either packed or completely wasted doing close to nothing. I’ve been quite careless most of the time and haven’t really got back on track since last weeks blues, energy has been rather low, sleep bad and turning the nights into days and back…
