Sometimes being a little remote is a nice way to travel. Recently, near Popoyo in Nicaragua we decided to stay a few kilometres away from the beach and nearest town, in order to get a more real experience outside the tourists. 

Without a bike of our own, everything required long walks down these beautiful roads near the pacific coast. Whether it be for drinking water or a swim on the beautiful ocean, occasionally the extra effort makes everything so much more beautiful in the end.
