First of all, I realize it has been an obscenely long time since my last post. This is due to several factors:
1) I'm a senior undergraduate in my final semester of college
2) My computer's motherboard failed and I lost everything a few weeks ago
3) The above two factors combined with various travel preparations has kept me swamped with work.
As you can imagine, however, Honduras was incredible. I spent a couple days in Copan on the mainland near the border of Guatemala visiting the Mayan ruins, a bird park, and the town, before traveling back across the country and taking a short, tiny flight to the island of Roatan.
There, I spent the rest of the week snorkeling, napping in hammocks, hiking to the top of a mountain, snorkeling some more, and swimming with dolphins.
That of course, is the very
brief version of my trip but as it is now, I'm about to head off today to a totally different part of the world: ICELAND
! Spring break is once again upon us, and in a couple hours I will soon be leaving the sunny warmth of Florida and heading to the arctic to volunteer in Skaftafell National Park
for a week.
Until I get back however (hopefully with tons of awesome photos of snow, waterfalls, mountains, and sheep), here are some pictures from my Central America trip a couple months ago to tide you over:
