Road trips with friends have long been a dream for me, but as I can’t drive it’s never really been a reality. What was great in Central America was the long road trips we had to take, and the many adventures and escapades we got up to on our way. The roads in Costa Rica are so windy and mountainous, and animals roam freely in the rural villages we crossed in Nicaragua. The driving is certainly not for the faint hearted as people overtake on bends, the rain pelts so heavily you cannot see a thing and dogs seem to wander out in front of cars every few miles. But, we survived and have many stories to tell from our experience.
