This last year has been the craziest year for us both. To think that a year ago we were planning out how it could be possible to start our own business in Nicaragua while giving back to the community and now to see how far we’ve come has been so rewarding. We gave it all up to pursue our dreams. We never thought we would have run a hostel, bar and restaurant all while searching throughout the country for different handmade products. The lowest moments for us were Quinn’s trip to the hospital due to Dengue and Jonathon’s experience with the measles. But even with the lows, we don’t regret a thing. If we had never stepped out of our box, we wouldn’t have been able to experience the wonderful highs of becoming entrepreneurs. Over all it’s been the most epic year of our lives filled with adventure, laughs, scares, beauty, new friends, a new business, volunteering, traveling and everything else in between. Below, we recap some of our most memorable articles (these were very difficult to choose), and our favorite videos that we made just in case there were a few parts of our story that you might have missed :-). There are also some of the articles that were written about us this past year. We hope that you continue to enjoy following our journey as we expand our business, give back to the community and explore more of Nicaragua.
