Yellow Submarine

I first met Mr Sub three weeks ago. I think it was serendipity. I’d gone out on a date which turned out to be more of a dinner meeting. Maybe I should have stayed home and cooked those prawns in the fridge? Better food and more enjoyable. I left deflated, $20 lighter and not surprised. […]

Pico Bonito National Park lies on the mainland of Honduras close to the coastal town of La Ceiba. Named after the beautiful Ceiba trees that populate this area. A spectacular, raw and almost unspoilt rainforest landscape, Pico Bonito makes up part of the Mesoamerican biological corridor. I’ve trekked through many NPs in my time and […]

I touched down on Wednesday and several hours later I was slipping beneath the warm waters of the Caribbean once more into incredible visibility with a beautiful healthy […]

Panama is a paradoxical place. The shiny skyscrapers at the heart of global capitalism are the first thing that hit you on the ride out of the airport. A floating Gotham city. The area reminds me of parts of Manila. The fastest route to Casco Antiguo (old compound) is on the coastal belt highway (cinta […]

From Barbados to Grenada

“Barbados is the Miami of the Caribbean,” said the nail technician working hard to remove the dead skin from my finger cuticles. She didn’t even look up. I’m sat in a shopping mall in Grenada right now. Her intricately braided hair woven tightly. When you bounce around the islands you meet people from all over. […]
