This blog is about my travels. At home in New Zealand, in other parts of Oceania, North, Central and South America and in Europe.
Another cool trip was the night tour of the active volcano, Volcan Masaya. This was just incredible. It is one of the few places in the world where you can see molten lava. The volcano has been this active for a long time, the Mayans used to worship the volcano (and sometimes throw people into the lava). When the conquistadors arrived 500 years ago - they were afraid of the volcano, and, believing it to be an entry to hell, put up a large metal cross to keep it at bay (the cross is still there). The steam and light from the volcano creates an orange glow that you can see for miles. Its completely awe inspiring. A national geographic documentary on the mountain is coming out soon if you are interested. I'll sure be looking out for it!
I am a traveller from New Zealand. My blog is to inform friends and family about my adventures. I hope you enjoy it.
