The Guatemala Trip (July 2017)

Going to Guatemala 15 June 2017 On a whim, I decided to book a weekend in Guatemala mid June 2017. I literally booked the ticket the day before I left! Whether that is advisable or not is probably the subject of another post! I’ve done some spontaneous things in my travels but never this. I

Antigua, Guatemala

After I arrived at Guatemala City International Airport (GUA) around 7:15pm (20 minutes late), our captain began landing procedures only to pull up at the last minute. That was a bit alarming to be honest (cant say I’ve ever seen that). He then came on the overhead speaker to state that another plane hadn’t moved

A platter of the freshest fruits I’ve eaten, avocado (also very fresh), a full omelette (delicious), coffee, fresh squeezed juice, water, two orders of toast

Habana Vieja

I woke up on Day 2 in Cuba determined to get to my morning food tour on time (unlike the day before). So I got up and was ready to go around 9:15 to make a 10:00 tour. I was excited. Ready! Then my hosts and I could not find a taxi! We called so
