Playa Santana, Nicaragua

HOLD ON PLAYA SANTANA, I AM COMING!

As I sit here trying to write today’s post, I keep glancing at baby monitor beside my computer because I swear that I turned the volume  all the way down.  I check it,  yep the volume is off….so how is it possible I still hear my little one fighting sleep through the speakers?!?!?!

 “Damn monitor, I can’t even rely on the mute button…”

Ok, finally.  There it is.  The silence.  I now get to drift into wanderlust and reflect on my past travels and go into a state of euphoria for 1 hour; I never thought that one hour could be so amazing!

TODAY I WANT TO RELIVE OUR MONTH IN PLAYA SANTANA, NICARAGUA BECAUSE THIS TIME OF YEAR I ALWAYS FIND MYSELF LONGING TO HEAD SOUTH.

I want to eat jalapeño chicken from Yolanda’s, drink Toñas for breakfast, spend my afternoons taking pictures of Josh surfing; I want to  live in a bathing suit, nap in hammocks, watch every single sunset and learn Spanish from the locals.

 I want to be on Nica Time.

Watching the sunset is an event and is something that is scheduled into one’s day down there. They are something so spectacular that if you miss one you truly feel sad…

No baby monitor here…

Or rush hour…

The only angry “person” you will come across will be a Howler Monkey and its because you got too close to his tree…

Everywhere you go, you will always be greeted with a smile…

And there is plenty of time to just breathe…

There is nothing more relaxing than spending time in the water and here that is all you do…


ALRIGHT YA’LL, I FEEL BETTER.  NOW THAT I HAVE REMINISCED ABOUT TRAVEL PRE-BABY DAYS IN PLAYA SANTANA I AM GOOD.

And the funny thing is, these photos stir up my deep desire to take Noah there ASAP because he deserves, more than anyone, to see the beauty of the world.  Noah should have memories like these but better with US; traveling is only going to get better.

Sure, I may miss sleeping in, drinking beer for breakfast and having more than an hour to myself all day but you know what?

I’d rather wake up with the sun in Playa Santana to watch the sunrise with Noah, to see his eyes light up when he sees the ocean’s calmness first thing in the morning, and teaching him about the Earth’s beauty that surrounds him.

To me, that is priceless…Looks like I am booking a trip soon!
