Guatemala Summary

Friday, January 7th, 2011

As a friend had come out to visit me in Belize it felt like Guatemala was going to be my first country I was doing on my own. Then on my first day I met a guy who had ridden down from California and convinced a night guard to give us a private night tour […]

Green Flash

Monday, March 9th, 2009

Monte Rico is famous for it’s beautiful sunsets. Sometimes atmospheric conditions mean a green flash happens when the last of the rays disappear over the horizon. I haven’t seen it yet. Other than that I am still getting quite bad headaches which has me a bit worried as I have never suffered from headaches (other […]

Morning Mangroves

Friday, March 6th, 2009

This morning I was up at five to watch the sunset from within the mangroves as the area I am staying in is actually an island separated from the mainland by 60 km of canal. I don’t think that the photos do the moment justice. Oh plus I saw fish that skip along the top […]

Head Hurts

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

Yesterday I was playing in the waves and one caught me the wrong way and slammed me into the sand. I felt like I had smashed into concrete. My head really hurts particularly when I look to the right or move my mouth but I was hoping that it would be ok. Today I was […]

I learnt my lesson in San Pedro and this time I have asked for 1 Spanish lesson before I sign up for the whole week. It went pretty well and my teacher is a lot more conversational than my last one. So I will start next week as well as helping out with computers at […]

Monte Rico (Monterrico)

Friday, February 27th, 2009

It was a beautiful ride and just before Monterrico I had to put my bike onto a skip for a 30 minute ferry through the mangroves. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to manoeuvre my bike but Julio had said that once I took of my helmet I would have 10 blokes helping […]

Hammock Time

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

You all might think that I am living the life of Riley. Cruising around on my bike, soaking up the sights, no cooking or cleaning, seeing beautiful people and interesting places. But personally I don’t think that I have nearly as much hammock time as I was anticipating. I had thought that most of my […]

Old Mixco

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

Wednesday morning Julio took me up to the Mixco Viejo (old) Mayan ruins situated on a number of hill tops. Due to the limited access this was one of the last cities to be conquered by the Spanish. We were the only people there and beauty of the hilltop views and the serenity of the […]

Visiting Casa Alianza Guatemala

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009

Out of all the things that I have done so far visiting Casa Alianza was probably the most daunting. When I arrived they only spoke Spanish to me so I had no idea what they were saying and felt quite uncomfortable. Finally someone took me to the house of teenage mothers and luckily a Swiss […]
