It´s been a while since my last update, so long I cant remember it! A lot has happened since then though, for me at least!
I have just spent 5 days on an island called Utila in the Bay Islands, Honduras. I was actually staying on one of the small cayes just off this island which wasnt much more than a small rock crammed full of houses on stilts, similar to Caye Caulker in Belize a few weeks ago. I spent two nights on the main island but the reason for going to the caye was to do my PADI Advanced Scuba diving course and while doing this I got free accomodation here. The course means you can do more interesting dives and we certainly did, I dived around the wreck of a cargo ship at which I could swim through the hold and the control tower, all pretty cool. I also did a night dive which you go diving around 6pm with torches, this was a great surprise as there was an incredible amount to see such as octupus, shrimps, lobster, bioluminescent organisms and weird ghostly sea creatures.
One of the other cayes was a remote island full of white sand and coconuts plants and palm trees - a tropical paradise which I had to get to by sea kayak. I went here a few times and was the only person on this small island - very relaxing and a cool ship wrecked island. In fact pirates used these islands as hideouts before attacked Spanish ships carrying gold. I on the other hand didnt bother hunting for treasure just lay in the sun and drank fresh coconut water!
Over the past few days I haved travelled a long way, hindered by buses braking down, road works, border security and inaccurate times to Grenada, Nicaragua. I have 4 days around here before my flight home which I´m trying to forget about!
