My 13 Best Things About Guatemala

I wish that I could spend a few more days in this beautiful country.. there is so much to see! I’ve been making friends so quickly… they have taken me under their wing as far as references on where to go, how to get there, places to see.. etc. Let’s get started with this list, shall we?

1. In God We Trust

I wear my heart on my sleeve… and keep my fate in His hands, always.

2. The Mountains

This photo will pretty much summarize my thoughts on this… I know that I’m a beach babe, Bali babe.. what have you.. but I am falling in love with the mountain views. I’ve been to so many different mountains that every view looks different.

3. My Hostel – Antigua Hostel

Nicest people – good vibes and great atmosphere! This was one of my favorite spaces for remote working.

4. Tuk Tuk

These small scooters that were like Taxi.

5. Boat ride to San Pedro

8. Architecture is most beautiful

9. Cobblestone..

Most of you are like… this isnt your #1? Fukk no. The cobblestone ruined every pair of crutch tips that I had in less than a day.. and they are hard to find replacements. But it’s still beautiful to look at,
