House Sit No.2 – Roatan, Honduras

Roatan is an island off the coast of Honduras in the Caribbean sea. It’s got clear blue waters, white sandy beaches and the standard Morcheeba tune playing out of every beach bar :)

The island is pretty basic, to say the least, which explains my lack of updates. It’s taking us almost a month just to understand the process behind buying more credit for our internet sim card.

Putting the difficulties aside it’s so laid back, there aren’t too many tourists, and it’s a diving mecca. Becoming qualified dive masters is the main aim of our stay, although we are booked to go fishing tomorrow… deep-sea fishing… how did I get roped in to that?!

In true Baz style we’re always in search for a party, and boy have we found a few. Probably the best so far has been ‘party at the Petrosun’. Sounds more glamorous than it is, as Petrosun is a petrol station. Every year to mark their anniversary they set up a sound system outside and hundreds of people come down to party to reggae, needless to say we were in our element.

We have made loads of friends already, there’s a village of around ten houses at the end of our driveway, most don’t have electricity and as they speak ‘Island-English’ it’s taken a while to acclimatise. There’s a fair few funny stories involved which I’ll save for another day.

On a final note, we’re missing you all very much at this time of year, but at least it’s 29 degrees ;)
