I have arrived in Nicaragua – YAYYY. The journey was long, and the border crossing was EXTREMELY hot and, as always, it involved a lot of walking around and lugging board bags and suitcases through the mud. For any of you who don’t know this area of the world, Nicaragua is the bordering country above Costa Rica, and often has sick waves and offshore winds all day! So it’s a great spot to visit at this time of yeah for surf trips.
I am up here to score some surf with a group of British surfers and body boarders to get some photos for a magazine. But before I go to the coast to meet the group, I am spending a couple of days exploring the culture, bars, and restaurants in Nicaragua’s oldest colonial city, Granada.
I am here with Margriet, and this morning we jumped on a horse and carriage in pure tourist style to tour around the town. We sat there eating chocolate ice creams and listening to our guide tell us historial facts in fast spanish, of which we understood about 30% haha….Perfect
We just had an AMAZING lunch at The Irish Pub (I know, Nicaragua???), but we couldn’t resist the sound of battered fish and chips and a nice ice cold Tonia (Nicaraguan beer). And booyyyyyyyy it was so good!! I think one of the best fish and chips I’ve ever had, and I’ve eaten ALOT. I highly recommend anyone passing through Granada go try this fish and chips. It rocks!
This evening we are off searching for more local beers, music, and salsa dancing Good Times!!
