White water rafting on Río Cangrejal


DCIM100GOPRO

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I went white water rafting in La Ceiba, more specifically in the Río Cangrejal area of Pico Bonito. I had never done this before but I must say that it was amazing. For 40$ they picked us up at the hotel, drove us all the way up in the mountains on little roads that we barely would have been able to drive ourselves. Once we were at the mountains they explained us how rafting works and once everyone understood the why and how of this really cool sport, we went off in the water for 2 or 3 hours. It was truly an amazing experience and I loved every minute of it.  Continue reading

Río Cangrejal


Pico Bonito (9 of 23)

Not only did I visit Cayos Cochinos, Roatan and Omoa while in Honduras; I also visited the Pico Bonito area in La Ceiba. A very old little bus took us up to the mountains where the Pico Bonito national park is located. There are various ways to get to know this area, and one of them is to do so by white water rafting. This was a lot of fun and I’ll talk more about this experience in another post, but for now I just want to share some of the pictures I took of the amazing views around Río Cangrejal!  Continue reading

Rio Coto

Honduras is a beautiful country. One that I carry in my heart. The first weekend I spent in Honduras, 2 weeks ago, my host family took me to Rio Coto where we met up with our neighbors. We ate the most delicious en fresh fried fish with tajadas and rice and beans. We swam in the water, jumped off the little pier, took some great GoPro footage, build sandcastles, took a ride on the banana boat and just enjoyed the great view of the surroundings.

Picnic in the Hoh Rain Forest

As promised I’d start posting more often again and since I took my trip to Washington about 1,5 month ago, I thought that it would be good to post my last article about it today. As you guys remember from previous post, the Olympic National Park has a lot to offer (mountains, snow, beach, rain forest and so on). After wandering through the rain forest for a couple of hours we found some really cool picnic spots nearby.  Continue reading

On the road

The internet is running slow here in Honduras, but since I have nothing else to do I decided to share this picture that I took in Washington last month. If you have read about my Washington road trip already, you probably already know that I’m obsessed with this state. Everything is just so pretty and peaceful, even the roads. Before moving to California I remember that I would spend many evenings browsing through Pinterest and WeHeartIt and I’d stumble upon really cool travel quotes pasted on gorgeous pictures with clean roads in the middle of nature.

Olympic National Park

After we arrived in Seattle last Tuesday, we went straight to Worldmark Discovery Bay, where we stayed for a couple of days. The day after we arrived, we went to the Olympic National Park for an amazing hike in the mountains. Paul took Slaiden with him in the backpack, so he did a hell of a workout! The views were gorgeous. I saw mountains, Hurricane Ridge, snow, deer and thousands of the tallest trees.  Continue reading

Put the baby in the backpack

Hiking in the rain forest with a baby is not a mission impossible. Slaiden loved hanging out on daddy’s back. When he started to get fussy, we just picked things, like pine cones, up from the floor and gave it to him to distract him. When he was sick of those, we just let him out of the backpack and he started running around and absolutely loved everything about being surrounded by trees that seemed to come straight from the fairytales.  Continue reading

Sea lions in Redondo Beach

My friend, Stacy, is training for a triathlon and since she was going to swim in the ocean this morning I decided to go with her to the beach and keep an eye out for her. It has been really cloudy for the last couple of days, but luckily the beach wasn’t wilder than usual. Even though I live in Redondo Beach, I barely ever go down to the beach in Redondo. It’s a little further than walking to Hermosa Beach, and since my leg isn’t fully recovered after the marathon yet, I haven’t been feeling like doing crazy long walks. Anyway, I went this morning and I saw a sea lion and a dolphin. The dolphin was jumping out of the water 2 meters of where Stacy was swimming which was so cool and the sea lions were almost walking on the beach. Such a bummer that I didn’t get out my camera on time. Isn’t the beauty of nature the absolute best way to start your day? Continue reading
