Isla Roatan

Today’s photos are of our Honduras trip. I will admit we were a little skeptical at first since the only things I know of Honduras is poverty and the need for basic things like clean water.

We took a bus from the Cruise Ship through a poor neighborhood to a small pull off where we then got on a nice little tour boat. As they were loading us up a Jet landed literally a few feet away. I thought it was going to land on us. The main airport is right there and the runway ends at the waterway we were navigating. The captain of our boat felt the need to mention how on occasion the planes overshoot the runway and guess where they end up? Our little trip down the canal was nearly pointless.

I have moved a lot in my lifetime. I also love cars, so loving travel is logical. My first attempt at being my own travel agent came after an exasperating experience in 2001. I had booked a Disney Vacation Package it was to be our first far away vacation as a family and my children’s first visit to Disney World. Through our travel agent I made the arrangements which included a direct flight, transportation, and our hotel with trip insurance. We were scheduled to fly out in November 2001 but then September 11th happened and that changed everything. First there were a lot of air restrictions besides being afraid to travel. I made some calls to see what would happen and found out the flights would be changed. The regulations no longer allowed for any direct flights due to concerns of hijacking and carrying too much fuel. I called the travel agent to cancel and was told the insurance did not cover that type of cancellation. I was furious. What was the point of paying for the Insurance? I was told we could possibly call the airlines for a credit and drive, which was not an option. After weeks of worrying we made the trip. The flight originally was 4hrs but now took 21 hrs but we had a great time. From then on I am the only one in charge of my travel arrangements. Check out my Disney Quick Tips.
