    First time visitors to Honduras are amazed by the warmth of Honduran
    hospitality.
    Returning travelers have never forgotten it

    You are so wise not to let your troubles put you off a place.  I have a friend who won’t return to Nice, France because her wallet was stolen there, and another who won’t return to Rome for similar reasons.  So silly.  These things happen everywhere, and as everyone says – it’s no bad thing learning lessons for the future!

      So very true. I have a friend who says she will never go back to a certain country because someone stole her iTouch. Never mind they left all the other expensive electronics alone. Still how does that represent an entire nation? I certainly wouldn’t want my home country to be judged by the poor choices of a few citizens.

    I totally know what you’re talking about here. I felt this way when I lived in Barcelona. So many things went wrong. I got pickpocketed in a supermarket and didn’t even notice it until later. And that was not the worst part of my time there. Long, crappy story. If I’d had a blog back then, I would have used the title you used for yours!

    Anyway, I’m glad that there have been a good number of positive experiences there in Honduras despite the various hassles. It’s wonderful that you guys have been diving together–how cool! PS: Your son is living my fantasy childhood! 🙂

      Sounds like quite an awful time! I’m very grateful there have been a lot of wonderful experiences on top of the crap ones as well. Otherwise we’d be getting the heck out of Honduras! LOL

      I’m definitely jealous of his life, too. J

    Yikes, those credit card issues are scary.  We’ve felt safer knowing that our banks are super diligent about catching those kinds of issues and removing them w/o any hassle… but I didn’t even think about how much of a pain it would be to get the cards replaced!  Getting things shipped when you’re on the road is such an annoyance.  🙂

    Thanks for the update on things.  I’m following most events that take place through Twitter and Facebook, but this allowed me to really get caught up.  Sorry to hear about the issues over there and hope they are gone for you now.  The best part of this whole post was reading that you and Tigger are closer than ever…..I love it.

    Those negatives can tend to add up, can’t they. Credit card problems make us really nervous. We had some major problems with our Mastercard in Ecuador, and it turned into (what seemed like) a never-ending spiral.

    Glad your are seeing all of the positives and enjoying the journey.

    Trust me – you’ll go through more periods like that you want to think about!  Here’s a snippet of my blog entry from Trujillo, Peru:  It’s familyonbikes vs Peru, and I think the odds are about even.  If we manage to cycle out of the southern end of Peru, it’ll be the biggest victory of my life.  I will certainly have worked harder for it than I’ve ever worked in my life. Life has become a test of wills.  It’s a matter of who can hold out longer,
    and I suspect Peru has endless amounts of patience.  The question is: do
    I have enough of that elusive commodity to get me out of this country?

    And yet now, with the benefit of hindsight, I can see what I learned through that time. I’m glad I managed to get through it and I’ve come out stronger on the other side. You will too!

    Honduras does not hate you but is just teaching you a lot of lessons for life and for the rest of your travels. I know it may have been very rough but you pulled thru and I am sure you are a bit of a stronger person for everything that has happened. 

    Keep your chin up and always thank Honduras for bringing you so much closer to Tigger.

    Finally a new post! I’ve been stalking your blog to see if you happened to be posting behind my back. I am so glad your relationship with Honduras has changed somewhat. I’m already aching to be back in Utila and diving but we need to see more and if there are other fantastic places. Miss you guys, you’re our road family! <3

      I would never post behind your back! J With doing instructor training, working, etc., the blog had to wait for a bit. Yeah, that’s the tough part about staying in Utila. It’s great, but I want to see more of the world at the same time. Nice to have these problems, no?
