The Day I Met The Mexican President’s ‘Son’

So yesterday I decide to do a little work in the morning, then ditch the work to have a ‘girly’ day, haircut a massage and a pedicure, OK  maybe not the pedicure but the other 2 were necessary. Anyway, I get my haircut first, way too short but I of course said “that looks brilliant,” when the hairdresser asked my opinion. Then onto an amazing … Continue reading The Day I Met The Mexican President’s ‘Son’

The Best Way To Meander Through Central America

The best way of traversing through Central America, from my experience, is by bus, flying is extortionate, trains don’t exist and boats serve little purpose unless you’re island hopping. Now when I say bus, I mean the coaches and not the Chicken Busses. For those unaware, the chicken busses are old US school busses that have been given a sort of Blackpool slut style makeover … Continue reading The Best Way To Meander Through Central America

Fear and Loathing in Central America

As I sit here in this backyard hotel, rotten to the core, surrounded by the filth of society in what feels like crackhead mecca my brain shifts to address the exhaustion that occupies me as a result of one of the world’s largest toilets, Central America. This resort was no doubt created for potless travellers, seedy businessmen and down-on-their-luck vagrants by some ‘visionary’ Nicaraguan couple, looking to add something to their luckless … Continue reading Fear and Loathing in Central America

This is wrong. In northern Honduras I stayed in La Ceiba, more specifically the Pico Bonito National Park, … Continue reading Forget All You ‘Know’ About Honduras, It’s Stunning

Quick Stories; El Salvador to Honduras

The day was upon me, the day I travel to San Pedro Sula in Honduras, officially the most violent city in the World. I wasn’t travelling there to be a boastful dick, it was just very difficult to avoid as I wanted to go to La Ceiba and flying wasn’t an option. A privately hired minivan picked me up from the hotel and first took … Continue reading Quick Stories; El Salvador to Honduras

San Cristobal de las Casas, Quaint, Cool and Quirky

After experiencing the luxury stay in Puerto Escondido it was time to hit the road again, we took a nightbus from Puerto Escondido at around 1830, it was a 12 hour journey and gave me a chance to get a good 8 hours sleep. Yeah right!!. Sleeping on busses regardless of how comfortable they are is something that doesn’t agree with me. We took an … Continue reading San Cristobal de las Casas, Quaint, Cool and Quirky

Reviewing Vivo Resorts Beachside Condos in Oaxaca

In the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca lies the beautiful coastal port of Puerto Escondido, the beaches are endless and relatively untouched and the sea is breathtaking. Puerto Escondido attracts many surfers and scuba divers to it’s shores and after seeing the beaches for myself, I can understand why. It feels like a movie scene. My friend and I stayed in the beautifully luxurious Vivo Resorts, they occupy … Continue reading Reviewing Vivo Resorts Beachside Condos in Oaxaca
