The Final Challenge

Well Night One of sleeping in the van did NOT work out so great. We started by trying to find a safe and quiet street to park on. In our past four days in Antigua we agreed this is a nice, family community town and we would have no problems sleeping on the street. We draped up sheets around all...

Guatemala City

Nine hours later, about 7 AM, we made it to Guatemala City with no other problems (besides the lack of sleep). Originally we booked our bus ticket to Antigua which is an hour north of Guatemala City so as soon as we got off the bus in the city we had another driver meet us to get on another bus....

Pacaya Volcano

The BEST Adventure YET!!! It is hard to believe the amazing experience we just had. It was an afternoon tour to Volcán Pacaya (2552 m); the only active volcano near Antigua in San Francisco de Sales. There was a group of 14 us that the driver picked up from Antigua. When we arrived at the small...

Arriving July 5 2009

I will arrive in Guatemala City July 5th. From there I will take a bus ride to Antigua where I will hopefully meet up with some couch surfers and crash for one or two nights. If that doesn't work, I will find a hostel for a night or two before I go looking for language schools to attend. I'm...

Chicken and Flan

We found the chicken place, "Pollo Campero" -- it's Senor Sanders Guatemala style. No nuclear cole slaw, but instead you get flan. Speaking of the food, it's not much to write home about (and yet here we are). And before anyone pokes fun at us for eating at a fast food joint in Guatemala...

Buenos Dias from Guatemala City!

A little bit of breakfast blogging to get things started... We arrived in Guatelmala City last night after a stopover in Miami. Apparently the clever folks at Miami International Airport are hospitable toward their soldiers, and oblivious to the irony of their acronym (MIA). Our hotel is...

Bags Can´t Run

So we made it. Hardly surprisingly though, our bags didn´t. At first I thought my baggage label hadn´t made it either but I found it just before panic set in and managed to log my claim with the charmingly apologetic men at American Airlines. (Thank god, I thought, I had had the foresight to...

The final destination Flores Peten Guatemala

A little island in the middle of a little lake at the top of a little country in the middle of Central America. My home.
