Weekend Adventures

Working in Honduras definitely has its perks when it comes to planning vacations. Living in Siguatepeque we are only about three hours from the Carribean Sea! Tela, a beach on the coast is usually our default when we decide we need a weekend away. As we are nearing the end of the school year and my time for the year all of the English teachers are looking to make the most of the time we have left in this beautiful country, so we have been planning a lot of weekend adventures. We have been to Tela two weekends in a row, once for a day with our Honduran friends who work at the Universal English Center and the second time for the whole weekend with most of the English staff.


Two weekends ago I traveled somewhere new near the largest lake in Honduras, Lago Yajoa. It was a little backpackers hotel a few kilometers from the lake right in the middle of the forest. It was a really cute place to stay and a new place for me which was nice, since the majority of places we have been this year I had visited last year. We celebrated two of our staff’s birthdays here complete with massages, nature boardwalk walks, cheesecake, an armadillo sighting, and more!


Finally this past weekend a bunch of us traveled to Valle de Angeles outside of Tegucigalpa. A missionary couple I have gotten to know over these two years had been a few times to this town and offered to take whatever teachers were interested in going. This was a really cute small town with a large selection of souvenir shops and little restaurants,etc. After spending a few hours there we headed back to Tegus where we stopped at a mall for lunch and a little shopping.
