HI!
This post is part two of my post about the trip I took down to Guatemala City for the World Indigenous Business Forum. That post can be found HERE. After the forum we had the chance to venture around Guatemala and the surrounding areas for the rest of our week’s stay. Let’s just say..it was definitely an exhilarating unforgettable adventure with many ups and downs. Some of the downs included my frequent panic attacks because of last minute changes or spontaneous risky adventures and the fact that my little brother caught a really bad virus that left him very ill for the two weeks after our trip. On the other hand, some of the ups included the breathtaking sights and culture that we were able to see, mainly because of our incredibly awesome tour guide. His name was Elmer and he took us on routes that were different from the main tours, so we had a much more exclusive, local, and community experience. So if you ever travel to Guatemala and want a great tour guide I highly recommend him and his company, more info can be found HERE.

Even though the trip consisted of those ups and downs it was an amazing life experience and an unforgettable trip with so many unforgettable memories and moments that will stay with all of us for the rest of our lives.

I hope you guys enjoyed the few pictures I have shared, I have many many more so if you’d like a post consisting of more pictures just let me know in the comments! Thank you for viewing and reading. If you also have any ideas for future posts, I’m always up for suggestions, just leave a comment or shoot me a message. I would love to hear from you!

Take Care Everyone!

Adventure Is Just Around The Corner. Literally.

If you are anything like me, you tend to crave adventure. 

This past month, I had the chance to visit the old jails on Vaughn Street here in our little city and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The old, grotesque and odd stories of past sinister villains, public hangings and other oddities that had happened there filled my mind with awe and wonderment as I tried to picture the things we were being told; some of the stories happened as recently as the 1960’s! The tour continued as we were brought down into the basement into the actual old jail cells where they continued to tell us horrifying stories of past prisoners and other things that had gone down in the spaces we were standing.

My advice to you is that if you don’t have the funds for an extravagant trip, or if you don’t have the time or simply want to fill that void of adventure but would like to stay close to home go out and explore that area of your city or town that you’ve never been before. Book a tour of an old building or a part of your hometown that has a lot of history. You’ll be surprised to learn about things you’ve never known before in your own backyard.

Thanks for reading, Hope you are all doing well!
P.S – Stay tuned for more adventure & photography type posts, summer is here & will be full of travel! 🙂
