Change is the Name of the Game


Good day,

I’m sitting here in my office aka a budget room that I rented on Big Corn Island because it has good internet, is secure, has fun people staying here and costs the same as breakfast at some more tourist oriented spot popular among foreigners passing through. I used to buy that breakfast just to get the wifi; now I get a whole room and if I stay the night it doesn’t really matter as the breakfast would have been gone anyways, yes?

Just yesterday I started confirming flights for my next adventure and I’ll be going to Europe in a few weeks. It also looks like I might be heading back down to Africa which is always a welcome change. Speaking of change, it’s really the name of the game. Lots of talk about changing yourself, habits and circumstances but I want to talk about changing your scene and the backdrop of your life. Certain settings set the scene for different styles and I do believe variety is the spice of life.

Imagine watching a movie that never changed scenes?

So I will have been here nearly two months and that’s good; I love it here but I’m also ready for some change. No where is perfect, some places have a bit of it all and others are specialty spots. The Corn Islands are a serious specialty spot; especially the little island. If you want to relax, eat delicious seafood, work on your tan, lose your mind, meet interesting people and scuba dive with hammerheads; it makes sense. That said, what it lacks it really does lack and that’s why this change will be much appreciated.

Some like to live in an area that has a bit of everything; I’d say that’s being medicore at everything but great at nothing. I’m looking for spots like this that score stupid high in the areas we love them for and laughably low in other regards. There is an old expression that if you’re the jack of all trades you’re usually the master of none.

I’m ready for the big city, new accents, buckled shoes, murses, chaotic masses and maybe even some cold.

That photo is of “the view spot” on top of the only hill on Little Corn; love it there.

Tips hat,
