Surrounded by 4 Volcano's which you can climb and a tonne of restaurants and bars.

We started our drive to Antigua hopeful Carl will get his passport back! At Zephyr Lodge you set a tab up until the end of your stay whilst they keep your passport, so you pay up! However the morning we were leaving (23rd October) their card machine wasn't working!! (No ATM in Lanquin!) So a lady who worked there came on our shuttle bus to the …

... di autobus all’andata e al ritorno, siamo riusciti a fare una piccola gita in barca e a visitare tre villaggi sulle coste del lago: San Juan, San Pedro e Santiago Atitlan. Come si può notare dai nomi, sembra che da queste parti siano un tantino ossessionati dai santi; in uno di questi pittoreschi paesini abbiamo anche visto un cartello che indicava la direzione per trovare Gesù. Abbiamo provato a seguirla ma non lo abbiamo incontrato: sarà per la prossima ...

... asked for a worse preparation.

The call finally came through and I was interrogated first from my lawyers, and then from the defendants representing the CFMEU. Mid way through my cross examination, you wouldn’t read about it, but two cats started going at it right behind me making the loudest commotion possible. This lasted a solid 10 seconds and it was all captured by the courtroom back in Mackay. The ...

... from the start – the couple I’d met on my walk had taken my bags to the hostel, so the only thing I had to remember was the name of the hostel – which naturally I totally forgot!

As it wasn’t in Lonely Planet, I then had to find an internet café, until eventually the name Yo Mama’s twigged – god knows how I managed to forget that one, but eventually arrived and it was a pretty cool hostel run by some English vagrant called ...

    Great Hostel in Antigua

    Great hostel with basic rooms and excellent value. Very clean, secure, good location and includes a great breakfast and Wi-Fi.

    Getting to Nicaragua - The travel agencies In El Tunco are both really good and for some reason cheaper than going direct. There is a direct bus that picks you up on the main road and takes the coastal road rather than going into San Salvador. Comes every 2nd day and costs $45 to Leone in Nicaragua. Otherwise you'll need to get to San Salvador which you can do by chicken bus or by mini bus. Mini bus is $1.50 and should be an hour. Mine took 1.5 hours due to City roadworks. Allow time. You need to get to Puerto Bus Terminal. Ask the driver to advise you of the best place to get off, it will be about 5 blocks away. The bus leaves at 12:30 and is a luxury bus from a company called King Quality and costs $51. They feed you, has wi-fi and they take care of all the immigration, you don't even need to get off!! They advise it takes 10-11 hours to Managua. I spoke to a few people who said it can take up to 13 hours.... You need to pay $17 to exit El Salvador and $3 for Honduras. You can do the same trip at 6am with another company called Del Sol as well. San Salvador to Honduras including immigration takes about 5 hours.
