This week I’ve been sweating my ass off for Nicaragua, literally. I mean, I just discovered the university’s gym couple of weeks ago (I’ve only visited the gymnastic classes before), it only took me over four years to do that! And now I’m obsessed with the cross-trainers and treadmills. One good thing in traveling to warm places during the winter is that you are forced to think about “the bikini-shape” when it’s otherwise so easy to bury yourself under thick knits. And being in poor shape has got to change in some point, right…? I’m already thrilled to notice that now after only few weeks of active working out, I can already run just a little bit faster a little bit longer… So whether it’s going to be hiking up the Mombacho volcano in Granada or spending the night with giant turtles in San Juan Del Sur in Nicaragua I’m going to be up for it. Just month and a half to go before the take off!
I’ve also started other preparations for the trip with full speed. Raised the insurance for my luggage (mostly for camera and computer) in case of robberies (I’m so scared of gun-point robberies after reading some travel guides) and already filled out ESTA for United States.
How good it felt to see “welcome to the United States” on the computer screen when I was done with filling the form out! I’m excited for Nicaragua, but being able to visit the states too for few days… Oh, going to Minnesota too feels almost like going home. 🙂
