Travel Diary #08
By Sergio Camalich
Every two weeks I’ll be publishing little excerpts from my travel diary to show a little bit more of what I live every day. These are taken from December 16 through 31.
True hippie hostels are my favorite. Friendly people in a chilled atmosphere. Plus, most of the time, they’re so cheap!
EXTREME DIARRHEA. End of the transmission.
You know you have a good friendship when you see each other after a really long time and it seems like no time has passed.
Why do human beings turn into spirituality every time we stumble into something truly marvelous?
Today, we all got up still a little jumpy from yesterday, but we managed to control this by having a couple of early beers. Yay for alcohol!
I still can’t believe how pretentious can “hippies” be. “Oh, yes. I don’t need anything in life, but I still pay for a $20 dorm, a $15 organic salad and a $10 yoga class”. PFFF!
Waking up for sunrise always calms up my nerves. And the pictures are always amazing!
“Don’t act mexican on me, dude!”. One of the most eye-opening things someone has ever told me.
Today has been the biggest example of generosity and kindness I’ve seen in a long time, and despite being away from my family, I felt like home.
Today is the only time I’ve been scared on this trip. After an awesome night out, we almost got attacked with a big knife by a robber. Good thing I saw him before anything happened and everyone reacted quickly.
Chicken soup for the messed up bodies!
4 chicken buses, 1 mini bus and 10 hours later, we are finally at El Salvador—the 4th country of this trip!
Easy day, today. Just laying on the beach, sunbathing, swimming, reading and eating. Life’s horrible.
First day completely dedicated to surf. 1 session at sunrise and another one at sunset. I can definitely love this routine.
The sunrise and sunsets seen from the ocean are incredible. I still have a problem deciding whether to keep on surfing or just stare into the horizon.
I love how I keep on bumping into other travelers I’ve met in other countries, months ago, despite of the distance traveled and the time passed.
