About Me

My photo

I´m Michelle and I am traveling in Latin America. I have always wanted to travel here and I finally left my home in Boston, MA in July 2013. I have been traveling since then, working here and there and continuously realizing that the world is filled with opportunities for exploration. I hope to travel for a long time but I always find a cozy place to stay for some time. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions I am more than happy to take you up on them. Live long, travel far, love often.

Copán y Gracias: HONDURAS

Arrived in Honduras after crossing the border back to GUATEMALA from EL SALVADOR then on to Honduras. Arrived in the last archeological site in La Ruta Maya in Copán. Then we continued on to Gracias, a cute pueblo where they were inclined to say gracias alot. I also met the mayor!
