Alabama Home Sweet Home

Friday is the day we packed out bags and headed back to the states! It was a bitter sweet day!  Most of us were starting to miss our family, friends and most definitely pets. We had to leave the camp at 8:30am and our flight was due out of Tegucigalpa at 12:05.

The group saying our goodbyes and getting ready to leave camp.


We made it to the airport with plenty of time to spare for lunch at Mcdonalds.  We checked all of our bags, then we had to pay a $38 tax to get out of the country. We had to fill out 2 customs reports about what we had bought in Honduras.  The security checks were much more intense flying in to the states then out…of course! They took my duck tape and hand sanitizer away.  They consider the tape a weapon…opps! I will know better next time. :)  We got body scanned, body patted and they looked through every bag we had twice by hand.  At least it made me feel very safe! The plane ride from Tiguc to ATL was 3 hours and 5 minutes long and a rather enjoyable flight…The Pilot walked through the plane handing out plastic pilot wings to the kids and of course he gave all of us one! We were all so excited!

We had barely enough time to make it through customs and re-check our bags in ATL to make it to our gate…THANK GOD our flight was delayed an hour.  It gave us all time to grab a quick bite.  We made it back to Florence about 10pm! I have never been more excited to flush toilet paper or wash my hands in my entire life.  It was a life changing trip and all of us will bring our experiences with us forever. Thanks to everyone who supported us in any way. We greatly appreciate it!! :)


Hey Everyone!! My name is Alyssa Pounders and I am a 4th level nursing student at the University of North Alabama. I am currently set to graduate December of 2012 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. Whenever I am not busy studying I love to go out for a run or hit the Tennessee River on jet-ski's. Basically other than that, I am busy living the fun filled life of a 22 year old college girl. I earn my money by waitressing and working at a local hospital. This August I plan to take an educational adventure to Honduras and 7 of my fellow nursing students are coming with me. We have the guidance of Mrs. Charlotte Cramer our nursing instructor who will be coming along with us. Follow and keep up with my blog and I'll fill you in on all of our exciting adventures in Honduras!
