Between the journey and the destination
FROM THE EDITOR
“It’s the journey, not the destination that counts,” surely you may have heard this famous phrase once before, which originates from Kavafis’s poem, Journey to Ithaca. Metaphorically speaking this refers to those who have ever reached a target too quickly and thus have realized it is pointless unless you consider other objectives and enjoy or learn from the journey. Dear traveler, you can indeed enjoy both in any destination throughout Honduras and the world. The trip is just part of that exciting feeling that involves reaching a destination. In Honduras, the beautiful scenery by land, sea or air, composed of different species of wildlife and communities, offer a refreshing sight to behold (and remember). The craft stores, fruit stands and grocery shops can be enriching to strangers passing through. In route, an interesting discussion can also lead to situations (or surroundings) that you can envision during such conversations. Once you reach your destination, the situation may perhaps become a little more intense, as you explore all its attractions firsthand that were described before. And this is when the journey leads you to new sights and teaches you about the local culture. As usual this guide includes multiple destinations, attractions, cuisine and of course hotel options. Be sure to dive into this new edition of Honduras Tips, it is a sample of the wide range of options offered by its host nation, Honduras. Welcome!
