UPDATE: Back to Reality

A month ago I returned from my adventures abroad and was promptly bitch slapped in the face by reality. By the fact that I was completely and utterly broke, actually beyond broke since I got a little too excited with my credit card, with no job in sight and my student loans looming. I fell […]

A Mom’s Relief Mission

Escaping the Nicaraguan Heat: La Laguna de Apoyo

The struggle is real when it comes to the heat in Granada, Nicaragua. I’ve heard that the heat is worse in León, *inwardly groans*, but unlike in León the beach is not a quick day trip. Although Granada does have the Laguna de Apoyo. Last weekend we took a quick trip with our friends, Siobhan […]

Los Niños de la Casa de Los Sueños

For Eli and I Granada was supposed to be a quick pit stop before we moved onto our next adventure in Nicaragua. We would be coming here with my mom in a few weeks so we wanted to leave the city unexplored for when we returned. Granada, though, had different plans for us. While hanging […]
