A Fresh Perspective
Today’s been a long day of travel from capital to capital- San José, Costa Rica to Managua, Nicaragua. But we have an exciting reason for not being in bed yet! Zach’s old friend Steve is on a plane as we speak, flying in to join us for 10 days in Nicaragua! Steve has never traveled outside the US or Canada, but he’s always up for adventures so we know it’s going to be a good time. We’re excited to “show him the ropes” per se, and to have someone else to hang out with! Mostly, I think it’s going to be really cool to have a friend with us as we near the end of our trip. I’m hoping that we can show Steve a really amazing time and that traveling with a “newbie” will help us see things through fresh eyes again. But enough from me, I’ll let Steve introduce himself:
“I’m Steve and I’m and joining Zach and Carrie on part of their journey through Central America. I’m very excited to experience someplace very different from what I’m used too. I’m looking forward to a good culture shock in Nicaragua with new language and lifestyle. My Spanish isn’t the best but I love a challenge and learning/experiencing new things. In all I’m just very excited about the experience I’ll have there, and everything I’ll be able to learn from being in a vastly different culture. Of course, when I tell people about traveling to Nicaragua they all have their comments (good and bad), questions, and concerns. My main concern for the journey is the SUN! So hopefully I don’t get too sunburned, otherwise I know this trip is going to be remarkable journey!”
