AWalk on the Run
I left home to travel for six weeks through Honduras and Guatemala. But then I met a guy my first day in Roatan (completely NOT the plan). Fast-forward nine months and I'm still here, working and living on the island with him.

Hey quick question please! My wife and I are thinking about some property in a development here Trujillo, on the mainland across from your island, I believe... Do you know anything about the area? As far as I can tell, it's just starting to get developed.. Any info you could share would be great... we're thinking of a trip down in late spring or early fall to check it out.

Hi there, Just came across your interview for your blog and started reading. Love it! I think it is so cool how you just let go and followed the flow :) I was just hoping you could keep in touch with me. I live in Denver and my boyfriend is looking into possibly buying a restaurant/bar in Roatan! Which would mean we would be diving head first into moving to the island, more than likely with a few of our friends. We will probably be heading down there in July sometime to scope out the place (would love to go sooner but BF's passport is expired :( ) maybe you have some insight for me? Any would be appreciated!

Leave some love for this blog:
