As I mentioned in my previous post, there’s this really unique village outside Tegucigalpa, Honduras where an American mining company once set up shop. It is now a bit of a rundown area up the mountain from San Juancito, at the entrance of La Tigra National Park and has become one of my favorite places to visit. This post documents my visit there in June 2017.
Cabaña Mirador El Rosario owned by Jorg and Monika is the perfect cabin on a mountain and the dinner and breakfast served at the main house is dreamy. Here are some sights from the cabin and their home:
And here are some photos from the former El Rosario Mining Company buildings near the entrance of La Tigra National Park, the bright pupleria, as well as some photos from hiking near the park…
My top three favorite photos from the getaway:
I’m always fascinated by the plants I see there…
Here are some additional photos from my phone to get you a feel for the place…
Lastly, we saw a quetzal on our way back down to San Juancito!
Nothing like a snow day home to have me thinking back on past trips and adventures.
In June I returned to my beloved second country, Honduras. I was able to have a quick getaway to one of my favorite places, Cabaña Mirador in El Rosario. While there, my friend Michelle and I took a little hike around the village and on the edge of La Tigra National Park. Just up the mountain from the village of San Juancito sits an old mining town that was operated by a US mining company in the early 1900’s.
This post is focusing on the photos I took at what Michelle and I call the “gringo cemetery” where the mining company buried workers who passed away while they were living there.
Some may find cemeteries creepy, but I tend to find them peaceful. This one is fascinating. I hope you enjoy some of the details of this unique place.
Just before the new year, I was able to take a walk around London as the sun set. I enjoyed a different angle for photos of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament than my last visit or my trip in the fall of 2015. This time I took a few (haha) photos as I explored. Hope you enjoy them!
The view I’d been hoping for!
On Wednesday, Mom, my sister, and I had the opportunity to tour Windsor Castle and have afternoon tea nearby before catching the train back home.
Since my trip here has proven that my super teacher immunity is no match for British germs and I’ve had a day in, I put together this blog post to give you a taste of our time there.
My mom and I took my nephews to Windsor Castle last time I was here in October 2015 (you can see photos from that visit here, here, and here), but I found this trip to be equally fun with the addition of Christmas decor and tea with my mom and sister. I hope you enjoy these!
I’ve been pretty pumped about this blog post, not because there’s anything special about these photos (they’re not the best quality, what with me not having a tripod with me, nor time to fix my settings for every shot), but because London is so beautiful at Christmastime!
These photos are from a couple evenings last week when I went to a show with a friend and the following day Mom and I explored Oxford and Regent Streets after we went to a pantomime at the Palladium. I hope you enjoy this trip through part of London at Christmastime. Apologies for any incorrect information I give about the locations of where these photos were taken…
More to come soon. Happy New Year, everyone!
Shocking though it may be, here’s an up-to-date blog post for you as I visit London for Christmas this year.
With a few more posts on the way, here are some photos from my visit along the Thames on Monday with my friend, Mel. Hope you enjoy!
Coming up next… London Christmas lights. You’re going to love it!
I’m trying to knock out these London posts so I can post more up-to-date photos soon. Most of these photos need little description since they’re the shots everyone gets when in London, so here you go!
