San Juan to Santa Teresa

San Juan to Santa Teresa

Posted from Address not found. The lowdown There are a lot of ways to get from San Juan to Santa Teresa. This is how I did it in one day. I have to also mention that luck was on my side. If my taxi driver hadn’t have shown up 15 minutes early, I wouldn’t have happened […]

San Juan Del Sur

San Juan Del Sur

Posted from San Juan del Sur, Rivas Department, Nicaragua. San Juan Del Sur can be described in two words, Sunday Funday. Of which I did not participate. Why? Well, as I get a bit long in the tooth, going to pool parties that are teeming with 20-somethings begins to feel a little like I’m trying […]

Lovely León

Lovely León

Posted from León, León Department, Nicaragua. After arriving rather late in León after 17 or 18 hours on the road, we were write-offs for the first night. There was some kind of a party going on in the bar at our hostel, but I think I was passed out by 10 p.m. The next day, however, […]

Antigua to Leon

Antigua to Leon

Posted from León, León Department, Nicaragua. The trip from Antigua to Leon was long and trying. You never know what’s going to happen when you book yourself on a 17-hour van ride across Central America, but this was our experience. The shuttle we booked through BigFoot Hostel for $55 was meant to collect us at our […]

magical Egypt

magical Egypt

Posted from Giza Governorate, Egypt. We were packed into the van, glued to the windows like children at a candy shop. Our tour leader, Islam (yes, that’s his name,) was giving us advice and information about what would happen and how things work, but it was difficult to pay attention. The medley of traffic was […]

travel through Guatemala

travel through Guatemala

Posted from Santa Rosa Department, Guatemala. The smell of smoke constantly lingers in the air. It follows you like a cloud and it’s not just because every tourist has taken up smoking again – packs are about two dollars. But as we drift these streets I’ve come to learn the difference between wood smoke and plastic […]

Antigua

Antigua

Posted from Warsaw, Sacatepéquez Department, Guatemala. The drive to Antigua from Lake Atitlan was like all travel through Guatemala – unpredictable. About 10 minutes after leaving San Pedro we hit a road block. Construction was occurring, and we were told it could be hours until traffic would be allowed to pass. Luckily, there was a guy […]

San Pedro La Laguna

San Pedro La Laguna

Posted from San Pedro La Laguna, Sololá Department, Guatemala. Getting there The race to San Pedro la Laguna on Lake Atitlan was a thing onto itself. We were told the journey would take 10 hours, (plus the boat ride) but someone else told us to count on 14 hours. The issue was the boats stop […]

Vienna

Posted from Address not found. The train ride from Salzburg to Vienna is a short journey. There are a few train stations in Vienna, with trains departing and arriving from different locations. I wasn’t sure where my ticket would leave me, but the transportation system in the city is excellent and very straight forward to […]
