Island Bliss | Utila, Honduras

October 3, 2012

On Island Bliss part 1, I shared a few pictures from my trip to Roatán. That same week, I took an overnight trip to Utila. My friends, I think it’s about time I let you in on a very embarrassing secret: I. cannot. swim. This picture pretty much sums up my relationship with aquatic environments:

The good thing is, I can enjoy the sidelines. So while the girls went out snorkelling…

…I Iaid on the shore browsing through a mag and chatting up an endangered creature, the Honduran national bird!

I joined them on all other activities. We shared one bedroom (six girls, madness), spotted a swimming iguana, danced like madwomen, had tasty seafood for lunch, rode our bikes all over the island and convinced each other that our sandfly bites didn’t look “that bad”.

The reason why I have so many pictures of the trip is because Kirsis was willing to carry Betty Canon wherever we went and snapped most of the shots on this post. Thanks Kirso!
