Viewing the World from a Two-Wheeled Perspective

Nicaragua (II)

Posted by on Jan 27, 2010 in Mexico & Central America, Motorcycle Vagabonding, Nicaragua | Comments Off on Nicaragua (II)

Tuesday January 12th [Well, I just spent an hour on this post and realized I am repeating myself…I will leave it because it represents a LOT of work!] Luckily this border crossing into Nicaragua was pretty straightforward. I got pestered by the “helpers” at the gas station before the border, and they continued to follow me to the border. A couple of kids sitting next to where I parked my bike told me they’d “watch” it…and I told them everything was locked up so I didn’t need their help, thanks. The picture is of the Nicaraguan side. Of course there is a picture of Che painted right on the wall at the border crossing. The roads after the border were pretty flat…and the land was agricultural. Yes, folks, these are cows along the Pan American Highway. Then it started...

Nicaragua

On the way out of Honduras I had the chance to stay with the lovely Bron family…the Dutch/Belgian family with their 3 active boys gave me some great insights into what it is like to be foreigners in a foreign land…and yet another point of view of Honduras, which I was grateful for. The ride into and out of te capital city of Tegucigalpa was effortless thanks to Willem’s guidance. I crossed the border at Los Manos, and it was pretty painless compared to Honduras. I headed straight to Granada, where I spent 4 days at a new hostel. It was a comfortable enough place, an easy-to-navigate town, the bike was safely parked, any my bike parts were just shipped to Panama (thanks Jim!) and so I was no longer in a hurry to get to Panama City. I...

Copan Ruinas (Honduras)

Posted by on Jan 22, 2010 in Honduras, Mexico & Central America, Motorcycle Vagabonding | Comments Off on Copan Ruinas (Honduras)

Saturday George picked me up, we met up with Eduardo, and headed out of San Pedro. On the way out of town we caught up with 3 Guatemalan riders who, curiously enough, had heard about me & my trip through the flurry of emails throughout Central America. We all rode together to Copan Ruinas, which was quite fun for me. <> Eduardo had to head back early, the three Guate riders invited me to go to the big rally / Bike Blessing in Escuintlas (Guatemala) with them, but I decided against it after my 7 hour border ordeal getting INTO Honduras…I didn’t want to have to go through THAT again. George and I had lunch together then he took off for his Saturday night date… and I toured the Copan Ruins. Copan was the southernmost of the Mayan Cities,...
