I just recently decided to book a trip to Honduras. I couldn't let a summer pass by without taking an international trip. It seems to help sustain me through another year. I chose Honduras for a couple reasons, one being that I have never been there and two being that it is another Spanish-speaking country. I want to continue to improve my Spanish.
I will be doing some volunteer work through a program called "Volunteer Solutions". I'll be teaching English and leading playground games at an orphanage in La Ceiba.
I will be staying with a family in La Ceiba. On the weekend between my two weeks of work, I'll be traveling out the the islands off the coast, Roaton and Utila. After my 2 weeks of work, I'll be making my way by bus through San Pedro Sula to a city called Copan Ruinas. I have heard great things about this city. It is smaller, with cobblestone roads and a lot of Mayan history.
If you're interested in checking out the volunteer website with some photos of kids and volunteers at the orphanage, here is the link:
I'll post again when I'm there!
