Colombia – the rest of the story by Alex | August 26, 2016 | Main journey | 0 Comments Let me pick up the story from where I left it – Medellin. I was just getting ready to join the awesome parties and the festival of flowers “Feria de las Flores”. Which I did, for a night. Then I woke up and realized it’s probably not my type of fun. I had good company,... Read More Hello Colombia. I love you by Alex | August 5, 2016 | Main journey | 0 Comments I challenge you to think a bit before you start reading. Think about what you know about this country, or what you knew about it before visiting Colombia. What do you know about its politics, internal situation, its people, and maybe about the performances in sports. Mexico, before getting there,... Read More I escaped Panama! by Alex | July 16, 2016 | Main journey | 0 Comments I’ve been riding back and forth in Panama, from the city to the beaches, from hostels to friends, to other friends, then back to the beaches. Panama held me hostage for more than I wanted, but now, two weeks later, I am writing from Colombia, looking back at what Panama was like. Panama city... Read More Panama, here I am by Alex | June 30, 2016 | Main journey | 0 Comments Crossing the border into Panama was probably the one that took me much longer than any other before. But the bitter taste I left the border with didn’t last too long. Not even 5km from the border I met Rose who came to check out on me, and spend a great evening riding together. The next... Read More Costa Rica – the story continues by Alex | June 21, 2016 | Main journey | 0 Comments After spending just a few days on the farm, I found out that a good friend Anthony was nearby. What a great opportunity for a short ride to Puerto Viejo. The weather was nice, the ride amazing, and we had a good time on the beach there. Maybe it would have been a lot better for Mr. Hill if I was... Read More Costa Rica – first thoughts by Alex | June 4, 2016 | Main journey | 0 Comments Tica time, volcanoes, wonderful beaches, and rain every day – hell, it’s the rainy season. Oh, and bring a lot of money. As I crossed the border to Costa Rica, I somehow expected to suddenly be in a far more civilized country than Nicaragua. The difference is not so big, but some... Read More 10% Nica – love, beaches, surf by Alex | May 23, 2016 | Main journey, Trip | 0 Comments After the first few touristy days in Nicaragua, visiting Leon and Granada, I was left with a sour taste about the country. However, as soon as I parted Granada, I was positively impressed. My first stop was the famous beach of Popoyo (whose actual name is Guasacate, meaning that if you hear about... Read More Nicaragua – the country of tourists by Alex | May 15, 2016 | Main journey | 2 Comments Nicaragua is one of those countries where I got a bad impression and negative vibe right from the border (that feeling you get when people look at you like a bag of golden coins). The more I spent here, the more I was convinced about it. Nicaragua is a holiday destination, and tourists are... Read More El Salvador to Nicaragua by Alex | May 12, 2016 | Main journey, Trip | 0 Comments The more I travel, the more travelers I meet are avoiding Salvador altogether. All the countries in Central America are supposedly dangerous, but probably El Salvador has the worst and unjustified fame of them all. We woke up to leave Honduras early morning, expecting a very long day on the buses.... Read More Honduras (mainland) by Alex | May 1, 2016 | Main journey, Trip | 0 Comments Traveling through Central America is not as easy as one would think. In order to enjoy the beaches, ruins or some traditional villages you definitely have to bear the heat, the sweat, and the crowded buses. Even if the general sign for a trash bin should here be the open window of a bus (moving or... Read More I dare you to see my adventures, read my story, smile and say hi if you did! Enter and explore!
