Adventure Update

Started traveling again! After two nights in Semuc Champey, I decided to follow some friends to Flores and Tikal. Then Guatemala City at a friend’s house and now on to Juayua, El Salvador for a food fair. 13 more words

Semuc Champey, where soul searching is conquered.

World Adventures

Semuc Champey, a Hidden Paradise

Guatemala was my favorite country I visited, by far.  It had everything.  There was beach (that I didn’t go to,) ruins, and volcanos.  It had the best stuff to buy and it was all cheap, too.   429 more words


Lake Atitlan, Antigua and Semuc Champey
