Leaving on a Jet Plane

I am off to Nicaragua!

Why? That will be explained in a not too distant future post (when I have time to think about it).

Truth is there are many reasons. Adventure. Opportunity. Challenge. Escape. Education. These, at least, apply.

This, the night before my flight, I feel what I imagine an astronaut feels as blast off nears. Once I step through the door of that craft I have stepped into the unknown. And this trip is ripe with unknown! Considering all the things I rounded up to outfit myself I will probably look like something from a distant world the moment I step on Nicaraguan soil.
I just hope my contact with this land and people will bring about mutual benefit.

Joy supports me in my effort to find what treasures I can and will be on a quest of her own. (We will hope to hear from her too along the way)

Wish us luck!

  1. Steve, may your trip be the grand adventure of a lifetime!

    Post some colorful tasty bits along the way so we can travel this alien landscape with you. Tell us about the solar cells, solar collectors, native foods, art, and adventures with the natives.

    I’ll check back soon for your next Nicaraguan entry .

  2. Reminds me so much of where you are now .
    Happy floating.

    Wasted On The Way
    Words & music by Graham Nash

    Look around me
    I can see my life before me
    Running rings around the way
    It used to be

    I am older now
    I have more than what I wanted
    But I wish that I had started
    Long before I did

    Chorus:
    And there’s so much time to make up
    Everywhere you turn
    Time we have wasted on the way

    So much water moving
    Underneath the bridge
    Let the water come and carry us away

    Oh when you were young
    Did you question all the answers
    Did you envy all the dancers
    Who had all the nerve

    Look round you know
    You must go for what you wanted
    Look at all my friends who did and got what they deserved

    Chorus:
    And there’s so much time to make up
    Everywhere you turn
    Time we have wasted on the way

    So much water moving
    Underneath the bridge
    Let the water come and carry us away

    And there’s so much love to make up
    Everywhere you turn
    Love we have wasted on the way

    So much water moving
    Underneath the bridge
    Let the water come and carry us away

    Let the water come and carry us away
    [ Crosby Stills And Nash Lyrics found on http://www.songlyrics.com ]

  3. Steve,

    Send us word through your eyes when entries have time to be written.

    Bright stars, thoughts and sharing of life between you and the lifes you encounter.

  4. Yay Steve!!!!

    Let me know about everything, I am excited for you. If you are down there awhile, I would like to join you for a few days. Not able to go now, going to the states middle of September. Take lots of good photos and keep a food journal. I am always interested in new foods and new recipes. I am always so excited, like you, when I start a journey, even a short one. There is adventure for me everywhere.

    Will you be in one place? I am sure that if you do have a base, you will try to see as much as possible. Hope you took lots of paints because they are hard to find down here.

    Love to you and Joy, hope she finds some land soon.

    Always,

    K.
