Gallivanting. Thats what i’ve been doing for the last few months. Well, apart from working 90 hour weeks over summer (don’t feel bad I have the best job), finishing my degree and starting my actual real life adult career (scarier than halloween). Once all that was sorted, I hopped on a flight to San Jose and gallivanted my way across Central America for 6 weeks and whilst it was incredibly good for my soul, I must apologise to my little old blog which most definitely suffered from a few of months of neglect.
Whilst we’re here, I thought I’d just let you know that Central America is simply stunning. It is a place filled with colour, vibrancy, culture and history. Each country is unique and beautiful. People salsa in the streets, children fly kits from the rooftops, their public buses are literally pimped up yellow school buses and they have the friendliest cats in the world (very important). I swung between the treetops in Costa Rica, had a late night dance session in a park grandstand in El Salvador, slept by an active volcano in Guatemala, explored ancient mayan temples in Honduras and salsa danced in the streets with the locals in Mexico. My heart is so full. Unfortunately though, these are countries which constantly receive damaging press. The first thing most people said to me when I told them I was going to Central America was “ooh its dangerous there, stay safe”. Not once did I feel unsafe. Of course you have to be aware of possible dangers and use a good amount of common sense but these countries are not the terrifying places their made out to be, they’re completely the opposite. Please don’t let fear stop you from exploring this wonderful world we live in. Central America has so much to offer and I urge you all to go and experience this stunning group of countries for yourself.
Now I’m back and i’m ready for action. I can’t wait to get back to the theatre and lose myself in some of the incredible productions we have to look forward to here in the UK. More importantly, I can’t wait to share it all with you!
Its good to be back.
