    Limon, Costa Rica

    February 7, 2019 in Honduras ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Beautiful coastline as we approached Limon. Did not have time to visit the town as we went on an excursion to have an aerial gondola ride through the rainforest. It took over two hours to reach the national park but it was stunning. Dense tropical rainforest. The ride took an hour but it was slow and virtually silent. There were six of us in the gondola and a guide who explained about the trees and plants we were passing. Saw no animals but did see toucans and humming birds. Then did a short walk to see butterflies. A very rewarding day.Read more

    Roatan, Honduras

    January 7, 2018 in Honduras ⋅ ⛅ 72 °F

    After an exciting birthday celebration for Jeff last night, we had a lovely morning snorkeling the second largest barrier reef in the world off Roatan. They are very aware that the coral is disappearing due to climate change and are trying to educate people about this which reflects the bleaching we saw while snorkeling.
    We then kayaked in the protected bay and we’re able to get close enough to the mangroves to see huge iguanas and hear parrots communicating with each other.
    Needless to say, we used some muscles today that had been dormant for awhile, so we were beat but stirred by the experience this afternoon upon our return to the ship.

    Roatán, Honduras

    December 21, 2019 in Honduras ⋅ 🌧 24 °C

    Honduras ist berühmt für seine Riffe - aber auch für seinen Regenwald. Deshalb gibt es hier auch Regen!
    Macht aber nichts: Bei 24 Grad kann man im Winter auch Regen aushalten - Sigi macht sogar gleich einen Landausflug um Leguane, Faultiere und Kakao-Herstellung zu sehen. Ich werde was im Hafen flanieren und die Annehmlichkeiten an Bord genießen: Es gibt hier herrliche Ruheräume und eine Sauna, die so wunderbar gestaltet ist, wie ich es selbst in Luxushotels noch nicht erlebt habe. Wo findet man schon Saunen mit direktem Blick auf’s Meer? Und erstaunlicherweise verlaufen sich die Gäste an Bord so, dass es nicht mal überwiegend voll ist. Wir fühlen uns schon ganz schön wohl hier.Read more

    Day 5: Roatan

    November 14, 2019 in Honduras ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Jordan, Zak and I toured the shops at the end of the gangway. About what I expected. The good news is we weren't hassled by any street vendors. If you wanted to go much beyond the shops you needed to get a taxi or go on a tour.
    Worked out again. This time it was just aerobic with 20 minutes on the treadmill and 20 minutes on the bike. My conditioning leaves a lot to be desired.
    On our way to Mexico.
    Attended a Thomas Kinkade / Disney unveiling. Interesting combination. Apparently Disney commissioned him to paint Disney related paintings in 2005.

    Mahogany Bay Beach, Roatan

    December 26, 2019 in Honduras ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    After Christmas Day relaxing at sea, and a lovely christmas lunch, we ported in Roatan, Honduras. Sun blazing, we headed off the ship into the duty free village that really could have been anywhere in the world (and wasn't that cheap). We walked down to the local beach for a happy morning bobbing around in the sea with our new dry bag and fabulous views (although in truth the shoreline looked rather like Newquay - full of bright red Brits and Americans, drinking, shouting and getting redder). We returned to the ship after an hour, not wanting to burn, and took advantage of the nearly empty indoor pool for lunch.Read more
