Wow the Spaniards did it again....it's incredible how many of these colonial towns and UNESCO World Heritage Sites look similar. Although each town does have it's own charm! Antigua does boast having a beautiful, massive volcano in the background. Today we arrived in the really early into Guatemala City and considering how dangerous it can be there we got out quick and headed straight to Antigua. After checking in to our hostal we rested a bit cause you never get ...

If I could do it again, I would put more thought into what I could cook in a steam vent! You could be so much more inventive than roasted marshmallows ...
