We are the Marincas-Bucy Family, Gregg (Daddy), Marlyn (Mama), Alex John (4.5 years old), and Gregorie Ann (3 years old). This blog will be the story of our 6 months spent traveling through Mexico and Central America. Please read along to follow us on our adventures, to find information about planning your own adventure, to get hints and ideas on traveling with small children, or to just daydream.
[Alex is now 7 and Gregorie is 5.5 , and our six months were spent. We are still reliving our adventures every day. And sharing them here. And dreaming of more... always dreaming...]

Home brews and folk music in the garden

Our first stop in Honduras was at the D&D Brewery in Lake Yajoa.  We arrived 1/26/10, after a long day crossing the border, hitting traffic in Tegucigalpa, running into road construction, and finally dealing with sick kid (Gregorie and mango juice and driving curvy roads twice proofed a bad combo).  We checked into our comfortable room amidst the lush gardens only to not have hot water -- which only mattered because Gregorie had been sick!  Dale, the owner, did his best to fix our water heater but couldn't until the next day.  But he did make the poolside shower available and soon we were refreshed and ready for a pint of his fine ales!  After months of only pilsners we were psyched!  We ate a tasty dinner and drank more pints as the evening descended and the band began to play.

The next day Gregorie was determined to go in that pool, despite the cool and overcast weather.  Well, she was determined until she determined that the pool was not heated!

It's cold!
Really cold!
Alex checks it out.
Oh brother!  I TOLD her it's cold!
Like, THIS cold!
This is our buddy, Dillinger, a member of the wonderful staff at D&D.
The sun didn't come out that day but the girls never gave up hope on the pool...
