So now we’re living in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia, volunteering through an Australian NGO, after having been back in Australia for just over one year. When we left, people asked me if I was going to revive my …

So now, as of late June 2014, we’re back at home in Melbourne, back at my job (which my employer kindly kept open for me for over a year), with a really bad winter head cold. And everybody’s mentioning the …

I’m three months behind in my blogs, this one is about things we did in early February 2014, so hopefully my recollections are correct. After San Gil and the Lost City hike, we took an overnight bus south, along a …

Colombia’s Caribbean Coast

Sorry that I’ve gotten so far behind in my blogs – I’m having problems with my computer. I will keep writing entries for the rest of the trip, just will probably always be three or four months behind. This blog …

 

Summing up Central America

http://www.drinkthewater.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/550px-Central_America_orthographic_projection.svg_.png

Skipping the big tourist area of Boccas del Torro (literally “Mouths of the Bull”) the bus took us straight to Panama City. We got in at something like 04:30 (Panama time, which is one hour ahead of the rest of …

 

Costa Rica

We took Ticabus, a modern, comfortable, airconditioned, bus line, direct from Managua (the capital of Nicaragua) all the way to San José, the capital of Costa Rica. We had planned not to spend too much time in Costa Rica because …

 

The Rest of Nicaragua

http://www.drinkthewater.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/covpic-nic3.jpg

Since I’m nearly three months behind on my blog, I’m going to write the rest of Nicaragua in one entry, and until I catch up probably do just one entry per country. In doing so I’m probably short-changing Nicaragua a …

 

The Moskito Coast

I’m still well over two months behind in writing this blog (we’re actually in Colombia as I write) so I’ll probably have forgotten some of the details. Anyway, after exploring Managua, the capital of Nicaragua, I went off to travel …
