Day 279: Honduras, Here I am!

Quick peek: Hot day, Thoughts, Rest. I was originally planning to ride up the hills today, but I decided against and though Chiquimula is not the finest town in these parts, I have a comfy room, a fan and access… Continue Reading →

Day 277: 3 Strikes and I need a rest day

Quick peek: Flat & hot, Mid-afternoon interlude, Evening climb, short day. (Synopsis, sounded too academic so I decided to call it differently) The Bomberos offered me a shelter yesterday and I realized I’d be sleeping between two parked fire engines…. Continue Reading →

Day 276: A proper full day of riding, and I feel good.

Synopsis: Cool morning. Hot afternoon. Lovely downhills. Crazy headwinds. I was up at 5 this morning as the sunlight came into my hammock, but I knew that the restaurant would open only by 7:30 and I tried to snooze for… Continue Reading →

Day 274: Rest day at San Cristobal

My original plan coming on this route was to get to the town of Coban, but from what I gather, Coban is more of a base for backpackers to hit up some of the neighbouring tourist spots. So I figured… Continue Reading →

Day 272: Starting out on a road with reputation

I tossed and turned at night and every couple of hours would wake up and decided not to start on the morrow and the next time would feel good enough to start. So it was a call to be made… Continue Reading →

Day 273: I shall have no bragging rights

When I woke up this morning, I was thinking to postpone the ride out. But Scapulas was not a particularly pretty town and I decided what the heck lets climb the monster. See the first act for the day was… Continue Reading →

Days 270-271: Needed off days to fully recharge

By the time I reached Huehue, I felt like I was at the end of my tether in terms of energy. I didn’t have enthusiasm to take pictures along the way either. Hmmm. Anyhow, at least I do not have… Continue Reading →

Day 269: Onward and out, to Huehue

I woke up to a beautiful sunrise in Bosque Ruderman. It has taken Carl many years to grow this grove, but I can see the appeal of growing trees. They are simply beautiful. I decided to sleep on the ground… Continue Reading →

Day 268: Goodbye Xela, but not quite!

As we parted ways yesterday, Carl suggested that I should visit him in the morrow so he could show me a little more of his Tree and gardening projects. Hmm. Well he threw in another hook. We could climb another… Continue Reading →

Day 267: Climbing Tajumulco, highest mountain in Central America

So, why can I not leave Xela yet… Among the multitude of reasons, here’s another one. On Saturday Morning, when I was getting ready to leave, Mark popped by and asked me if I’d like to climb Tajumulco. See Tajumulco… Continue Reading →

Days 265-266: Down days with an upset stomach

On my way down from Santa maria, I was a little off color. I had to stop for a bit and sleep it off. It would turn out to be a bit of an issue with the stomach with a… Continue Reading →

Day 264: Thank you Santa Maria, it was fun climbing over you

Volcan Santa Maria, the pretty, symmetrical, almost perfect looking hill had been staring at me for a week. There had been a growing yearning in me to attempt climbing it and a chat with Mark about climbing mountains, was the… Continue Reading →

Days 262-263: Xela’s got a hold on me

Technically I was supposed to be out on the road today. Realistically, I was ready and in my biking gear and about to head out and then I didn’t. First up, yesterday, I had to go around town and get… Continue Reading →
