Heading to Nicaragua!

Tomorrow I leave for three weeks in Nicaragua, and the real beginning of this Trading Places blog. The stories I have shared so far are experiences I’ve had in the past couple of years, real stand-out people and places that are some of my top travels of late.

Nicaragua is the first stop on my 2012 travels, and I look forward to the experiences and to posting about them here. I’ve never been to the country before, but when I was in Costa Rica several years ago I kept hearing about how less traveled and unspoiled Nicaragua was, and I’ve long wanted to visit.

I will be staying in home exchanges and some cool island organic farms. I’ll be hiking volcanoes and possibly sand-boarding down them; visiting some nonprofit organizations; exploring artists colonies; and parking on an island you can walk across in an hour.

I will be doing all this with my partner, Keith, and I’ll be taking you along for the journey. So watch this space for Trading Places updates from Central America!

    Sounds exciting! One of our writer friends did a guest post on GGT about Nicaragua, but we’ve never been. Sounds relatively unspoiled compared to the more well-known Central American hotspots. We look forward to reading about your journeys.

    Just got back from my first ever visit to Nicaragua – installing solar on a school in a remote community – with Power to the People. Loved it.

    Sounds like a great trip. Have fun, be safe and I think you can get some super jacked-up delicious coffee there 🙂
