And Im back From Guatemala in one piece

GUATEMALA WAS JUST EXCEPTIONALLY AMAZING! Thanks to everyone who helped reassure me of my safety and gave great tips on where to stay and what to do. I never felt more safe in such a place people claim to be unsafe. I would not trade in this 6 days and 5 nights experience for the world. It was just so magical and I am glad I built up the courage to take this trip ALONE.

Hopping from town to town, BnBs to Hotels, Adventure to Adventure, you really meet some amazing people who are also their alone either backpacking, taking spanish classes or on vacation like I was. And you automatically click and cling to them and become family.

I first stopped in Antigua and stays at Casa Antigua Hotel for two nights. I started my second day off doing a 6am hike up Pacaya Volcano and boy was that the most breath-taking scenery. Even though 10 minutes into the hike, my out of shape self needed to purchase a horse to take me up the rest of the way, it was still an enjoyable scenic view.

Next I Went to Panajachel to witness what everyone says is the most beautiful lake in the world, Lake Atitlan. And Oh MY GOODNESS, i do not have the right adjectives to describe just how peaceful and beautiful this lake was. I also visited 3 other villages that surrounded the lake, San Pedro, San Marcos and San Antonio. There are more villages and they each have their own little personalities.

Anyway, I had a marvelous time and cried my last night their because I was just so proud of myself and grateful for all of Gods wonders. This was definitely a trip that allowed refreshing self-discoveries and outstanding scenery. The citizens there are just the nicest and cant wait to go back. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR HELP
