  • Getting Local Adventure

    Getting Local Adventure

    Last week I wrote about how bored I was, waiting for work to start, waiting to have enough money to buy a car, waiting for rides to pick me up, waiting for the bus, etc. etc. etc. Luckily for me, shortly after writing that post I was taken on several small adventures within a very […]

  • Sometimes Being Bored is an Amazing Sign

    Sometimes Being Bored is an Amazing Sign

    The past few days I’ve been sending a lot of snapchats, which can only mean one thing: I’m bored. When I am fully present and occupied/don’t have 4G/am super content I don’t really use snapchat. I love to share photos with instagram and write this blog, but other than that I try to minimized my […]

  • The Travel Timewarp Phenomonon

    The Travel Timewarp Phenomonon

    I’ve been gone from the United States for exactly two weeks and sitting where I am right now it might as well have been two years. It’s not just that I’ve been caught up in the excitement of new and foreign lands. It’s also not because I ended up having an unplanned, extra long layover […]

  • 10 Things I Definitely Did Not Know about Hawaii

    10 Things I Definitely Did Not Know about Hawaii

    This week I offer a simple post. It’s a list and some pictures and I hope you enjoy. They have a winter and it’s actually kind of chilly. There are flying cockroaches. It is extremely rainy. There is a serious history of gang violence, murder, and drug addiction. Anyone older than you is called “auntie” […]

  • Alone Again in Paradise

    Alone Again in Paradise

    I have not written in a record breakingly long time because I was simply enjoying being on a road trip with Martina. Turns out that it’s pretty fun to travel with somebody you get along with. I have become very accustomed to solo travel and don’t usually think about gaining a travel partner most of […]

  • ALERT ALERT: CAN OFFICIALLY CONFIRM THAT SLOTHS ARE MASTER CLIMBERS

    ALERT ALERT: CAN OFFICIALLY CONFIRM THAT SLOTHS ARE MASTER CLIMBERS

    Sloths. Perezosos. Lazy One. Sloths get kind of a bad rep about being slow. But, I know one member of the Ramrod Team that emulates sloths in her climbing technique. It is true that climbing slowly is harder than climbing quickly, but (depending on the climbing circles of which you are a part) climbing quickly […]

  • Secret Beaches and Accidental Trespassing: A Manuel Antonio Adventure

    Secret Beaches and Accidental Trespassing: A Manuel Antonio Adventure

    Please pardon my missing a post last week, I had just returned from Central America to the United States and there were many transitions to be made all at once. Firstly, I spent the night in the Mexico City airport, decidedly NOT sleeping, so I was tired. Secondly, I had not the use of a […]

  • I Went to the Jungle and Life Afterwards Was Different

    I Went to the Jungle and Life Afterwards Was Different

    Sometimes a place really welcomes you. You can feel the resonance, and even if things go wrong or you make mistakes, overall things will go well and you´ll enjoy yourself. Other times you meet a place and it just does not want you there. Or rather, your personalities just do not mix well. This is […]

  • Ometepe Island: a Meeting of Edges

    Ometepe Island: a Meeting of Edges

    I left Granada on the 10th of February, a Sunday, hoping to make it to the next point of my travels in just one day. My destination was a little town on the very south side of the southern island, far away from pretty much anything except what it is already there. Ometepe Island is […]

    You Probably Don’t Need to Take a Tour Part 2: Laguna Apoyo

    After a day of work, I needed to get out of the house. I’m staying with El Arca de Noé (which translates to Noah’s Ark) in Granada, helping build the website for the small hotel. After a day inside this beautiful house, I was ready to get out again, and once again, I did not […]
