Ropeswings and Highlines

Moab, Utah, this place never ceases to amaze me. Every so often I travel West to play in the desert with  some wonderful people and I always find myself on adventures like the ones you'll see below. The Monkey's were the ones who introduced me to Highlining, Basejumping, Climbing, Insane Ropeswinging, and more. The activities each are involved in are so complex and diverse, the list seems to go on and on. One fact remains the same though and that is that each desert dwelling friend absolutely loves living life. These pictures were from one of those trips West of the Rockies where we spent the day in the sun laughing, rigging, walking lines, scaring ourselves by jumping off of 400 foot cliffs, and hugging one another as the sun set low on the horizon.

Central America Part 2

Back to more Central America photos. On this part of the trip we began to trek inland and ended up on the Pacific side before catching a flight home. The little boy in the photos towards the end was the hostel cooks son in Nicaragua. When we arrived he was sleeping on a yoga mat and as we signed in he began to stir. He started stretching and threw himself into a few yoga poses. We watched him curiously until he stopped and wanted to play. He would walk around, steal our noses, and throw them out into the jungle! We couldn't stop laughing and smiling with him as he played tricks and giggled. More friends, more hostels, more oceans, hope you enjoy!

Central America Part 1

This last spring I had the opportunity to go sailing from Mexico to Guatemala with two of my cousins and a friend. When I arrived they revealed that they had had a terrible trip sailing in from Cuba and that they wouldn't be moving from Isla Mujeres, Mexico, for three solid weeks. With only a month and a half to travel my cousins and I spent the next two days trying to make a decision. On the third day we took off to backpack, ride chicken busses, stay in hostels, and take advice from locals and other travelers. What a fun and crazy trip that ensued. After all was said and done we had traveled through Mexico, Belize, Guatemala, skipped El Salvador and Honduras via an extremely long bus ride, spent some time in Nicaragua, and finished our trek in Costa Rica. We met amazing characters from all parts of the globe, ate the most amazing food, swam in the bluest of oceans, slacklined across beaches, rode bikes to cenotes, and even crashed a birthday party on the beach. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the trip. To be continued in a second post.
