N IS FOR NICARAGUA
Cody and I fortunately had time to spare, so 2 and a half months into our 5 month Central America tour we decided to take a break from the continuous travel and book a house in San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua for 3 weeks.
Our small casita was 10 km outside of San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua and perfect for a quiet getaway. What did we do for 3 weeks in the jungle you ask?
Absolutely nothing. And it was just what we needed.
Apart from cooking, and doing the dishes; the two of us laid around in hammocks with a good book, spent the day at a nearby beach, practiced yoga, watched movies, and received daily visits from the resident dogs on the property.
Perhaps that is a waste of time for some.
To me, it is a human being in the moment, something most of us understandably have a problem with.
Our time in San Juan Del Sur was spent resting, recharging, taking it easy, unwinding, doing nothing, chilling out, etc…. and that is more valuable than having a list of 100 things to accomplish.
I believe it is vital for good health, and productivity.
The island of Ometepe in the middle of lake Nicargua is an island created by 2 volcanos which you can hike. The volcano in the background is called Maderas and is the one we hiked on this trip. It has a cloud forest and a lake formed out of a crater at the top. We also saw and heard howler monkeys on our hike. 🐒This island has so much to offer and the most welcoming people. We spent 3 days here during our trip to Nicaragua... check out part 2 of our blog post on what we did and why we loved it so much! Link in bio.
I picked up a couple books on Spanish. I have 3 yrs until my youngest is 18. I can pick up Spanish curriculum so I can learn to read and write it. Spanish is easy to pick up ... if I get around Spanish speakers, I get the gist of it for the most part. If I go ahead and get my #passport thats half the paperwork right there. I self teach myself to do a lot of things. #nicarauga#southamerica Safety is a relative term. I can get shot and killed around here in an instant so fear of it elsewhere is minimal. #politics#ghetto#hood#libertarian#democrats#government#republicans#liberal it makes me laugh at how many #christians are afraid to die around here😂 #missionstrips#church Many guerrilla fighters and even gang members in those areas will leave people alone who are helping the community ... there is nothing to be afraid of, just mind your own business. Dont bite the hand that feeds you. Simple concept.
