Yabba Dabba Doo! A stop in Bedrock City

**Now Closed** Unfortunately, Bedrock City is closed now. After pulling into what looked like a deserted parking lot, my suspicion levels rose quickly, but I pushed those thoughts aside as we entered a building that looked a little sketchier than I would have liked.  Some of the souvenirs looked like they were there about 15…

Daydreaming of the Corn Islands

There are affiliate links in here. The Corn Islands in Nicaragua were one of my favorite parts of my trip.  Definitely my highlight of Nicaragua.  Little Corn Island was just the perfect little place.  All of the backpackers that went there described it as a holiday in a holiday.  That's pretty accurate. I think I've…

Climbing Pacaya, My First Volcanic Adventure

One thing I knew I wanted to do before I left was climb a volcano, specifically Pacaya in Guatemala, mostly because that was the only one I knew about.  Pacaya is just outside of Antigua, about an hour's drive.  After a couple days wandering around Antigua, I decided it was time I do the climb.…

Nicaragua Close Up + Tips For Visiting

One of my favorite types of photography is macro photography, the really close-ups where you can't even tell what you're looking at.  It gets you thinking and your imagination going, which I enjoy.  This means when I come back from a trip, the majority of my pictures are not easily identifiable.  They could just be…

48 Hours on Isla de Ometepe in Nicaragua

I arrived on Ometepe on my own, but quickly befriended some Australians at my hotel.  I didn't find Ometepe to be the best place to be alone since everything is so spread out.  It's a good place for company.  The first full day I had was spent laying around the hotel lobby because it was…
