Profile
I travelled around for 6 years teaching scubadiving. My last stop was Roatan, Honduras, and then I kind of got stuck there- that was over 18 years ago! We have a hostel with dorm beds for $10/night+tax and private options from $14-$42/night, and love to have new faces around. I live with my two young sons, and manage reservations and guest services at a resort. The three aspects of my life that define me the most are: Christian, mother, and traveler.
