Semuc Champey

Semuc Champey

Posted from Alta Verapaz Department, Guatemala. Getting there I spent most of my birthday in a van. We left Flores for Lanquin, the village near Semuc Chempey, at 8 a.m. The thing we’re learning about driving through Guatemala is it takes nearly forever to go anywhere. Through almost all cities, villages, and bizarre places there […]

Flores – the gateway to Tikal

Flores – the gateway to Tikal

Posted from Tikal, Petén Department, Guatemala. Everyone said Flores was special. The old part of town is an ancient city on an island, in the middle of a lake, just across the border from Belize. If you ever find yourself in Guatemala and happen across Flores, do not miss the ancient Mayan city of Tikal. The […]

Caye Caulker

Caye Caulker

Posted from Belize. Belize has a bad rap. But Caye Caulker is a place onto its own. We had heard about the island through other back packers, and decided we would heed their advice and head to the spot of land after Tulum. The journey there was interesting, landing us on Caye Caulker at 9:30 a.m. From […]

Tulum to Caye Caulker

Tulum to Caye Caulker

Posted from Belize. UP TO DATE info on the night bus from Tulum to Belize City, and ferry to Caye Caulker How it goes down TULUM – The ADO bus station in Tulum is easily located on Tulum Ave. near the centre of town. It has toilets that cost $5M MXN to use, so if […]

Tulum

Tulum

Posted from Quintana Roo, Mexico. We left Cancun around 11 a.m., not really in a rush to get to Tulum, but not wanting to waste the entire day. Tulum is about two to three hours from Cancun and is synonymous with hippies, yoga retreats, and people who live on spirituality and once a week showers. […]

can you Cancun?

can you Cancun?

Making Cancun my introduction to Mexico probably wasn’t the best idea. Why? It’s a tourist zone. Plain and simple. But in order to begin our trip from Yucatan to Panama City, we had to start somewhere. Where could travel be more efficient than a place filled with heaps of tourists? From the airport to downtown […]

Beautiful Amsterdam

Beautiful Amsterdam

Posted from Amsterdam, North Holland, Netherlands. Amsterdam wasn’t what I expected. Anyone who who’s been to this famous Dutch town knows what I’m talking about. I’d seen the photos and I’d heard the stories. I was expecting Amsterdam to be filled with potheads and prostitutes lurking in alleys like some grim Tim Burton movie.  If there […]

Iceland stopover

Iceland stopover

Just south of the Arctic Circle, in the middle of the north Atlantic lays Iceland, an old country filled with vikings, volcanoes, and sheep. This northern land is most recently famous for the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull volcano in 2010 that caused air traffic chaos, but it has other claims of fame like singer Björk, and the Blue Lagoon, […]

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 […]
