Guatemala – Dos

Here we go again. After Pana we headed to Antigua to spend New Years !!!! We checked into our hotel room and my mother and I went for a walk around the town. I couldn’t contain myself and had to get out and stay out as long as possible. I LOVE ANTIGUA! i love everything about it the people, the vibes, the cobblestone, the ruins! This has always been my favorite part about my trips to Guatemala. After our walk  I cleaned myself up and we had a delicious dinner in the hotel restaurant then headed out to town.

Antigua, man oh man my new years eve will never be the same after this. EVERYONE gets together parties in the streets marimba playing, the good bye ceremony the grapes for good luck, dancing,fireworks and more fireworks. Just amazing. At midnight the fireworks go off and pretty much don’t stop till mid day!

New years day my sister and I woke up early to walk around take pictures while everyone was still sleeping.. I never sleep during trips it might be the adrenaline it just doesn’t work out for me. After breakfast I did some serious shopping (insert overly excited emoji here)

I’m really grateful for my parents love for their country and my aunt, they always teach us about the history. I think that is also the beauty of it all.

Please enjoy the images, I enjoyed photographing beautiful Antigua.

Guatemala – Uno

Cheers to the New Year! Been all over the place with my blog, but will try to maintain some sort of routine this year.

First up was Lake Atitlan, it was my first time here and as you can see was obsessed with the views. Our view from our hotel was this 5 min walk to the water, it was amazing. I am so going back to hike one of those damn volcanoes.. that is officially on my to do list. We didn’t have enough time this time around, but it will be done.

Enjoy the same view just different angles.

Maui WEST!

I’ve been absolutely horrible when it comes to updating my blog.. BUT ladies and gents Maui West aka the time my sister and I almost died #dramatic

Just like any trip I researched things to do must sees etc. I found a blowhole that was near our resort and decided to give a go. We started driving west and driving and didn’t see signs or actually knew where we were going for that matter. We stopped at a couple view points and kept driving.. At some point we decided we were just taking the scenic route and not bothering looking for the blowhole or beaches.

So about that “research” clearly it wasn’t that well since we ended up in a one way cliff to sum it up..We didn’t die obvs but did experience a traffic jam when a car was coming from the other direction and had to be guided by a local. There were 3 cars in front of us, which worked in our favor my sisters nervous wouldn’t have been able to handle all of that. Just imagine a little car on the side of a cliff… that’s exactly what happened to the car coming in the opposite direction. Maui West was stunning from every angle also extremely dangerous.

There is always light at the end of the tunnel. Perspective.
