To Travel is to Live – Hans Christian Anderson

From the desk of: Christine Altieri

I have my list of the must visit locations, and then a list of perhaps locations.  I love to travel. I love learning about new cultures, seeing new places, and finding out about their history.  I use to plan all my vacations (being a planner )  however, now that my sister Amelia has become a travel agent…I am spoiled, she does the planning!  She is so good at it!  (I would not expect anything less, she always exceeded expectations in everything she does)

This was our sister trip to see our Stepmom, and yes we all pulled out our white pants! (Ameila, Donna, Pat and Me)

Life is so busy, traveling takes you away from busy, even for a short time.  We just did that with a trip to Nicaragua.  What a beautiful country with beautiful people

So why Nicaragua ?  We wanted warm, culture, and beaches!

Located in the central portion of Central America and is known for its unique culture, traditions, and historical heritage. Nicaragua dates back to the times of Antiquity and unique places to explore and see.

Here are some of the most fun and interesting facts on Nicaragua.

Nicaragua is a very large country. It is considered one of central Americas “Tropical Paradise.” If, you get the chance to visit you will surely agree that Nicaragua offers diverse wildlife, culture and history. 

Nicaragua has two Ocean coasts. Each, on opposite sides of the country. So, you can take a morning swim in the Atlantic Ocean. Then in the Evening take a relaxing dip in the Pacific Ocean.

The largest natural lake in all of Central America is located in Nicaragua. Called lake Nicaragua it is a major tourist attraction and water supply for many people.

We spend some time on Jicama Point Lounge On Lake Nicaragua

Other Facts –

Nicaragua is larger than Ireland and Portugal put together.

Nicaragua had the first elected woman president of any Central American country.  She served from 1991-1997.  She also is the first democratic woman president of any democratic country in the world.

Nicaragua is home to the worlds only “Dual Volcano.”  The volcano is in a small mountain range and is fed underground by two separate magma flows.  It is the only volcano in the world that can erupt with two diverse magma channels underneath it.  Here is Masaya Volcano!

A trip is not complete until you capture a beautiful sunset …we had so many.
