Tikal By Night

A shuttle picked up my Canadian friends and me mid-afternoon. We’d been bullied into buying our tickets to Tikal from a friend of the bus driver on our 12-hour trip. I didn’t want to be taken advantage of. But it had been a long day and the price seemed right. We were afraid we’d been […]

Antigua, Guatemala for Gringas

Flying into Guatemala City International Airport, I was one of many travelers making a beeline for shuttles to Antigua, bypassing the city entirely. I’d come back to explore later, but for now, my focus was on making my way to the most popular destination in the country. My sister was living there, working at a […]

Behind the Curtain: April 2017

I’ve come to look forward to these monthly posts about what I’m into beyond travel because there’s so much more to my life than where I go, despite the fact that it’s something I love. It’s funny how many people respond with their obsessions or agree with mine! As with last month, I’m sharing the […]

Santa Cruz La Laguna for the Soul

“You are exactly where you’re supposed to be” I mused as the boat docked at Santa Cruz La Laguna. I needed the tranquility found on the shores of Lake Atitlan after personal drama in Antigua. It had been a long bus ride followed by a boat ride to get there. But I’d made it. I’d booked […]

12 Things a New Writer Should Never Do

Last year was my first as a full-time freelancer. I’ve learned a lot since I started back in 2010 to say the least. I’ve made mistakes when it comes to invoicing and the amount of pay I am willing to accept. I’ve thought a lot about what I wish I’d known back then and also […]

My Next Destination: Israel

It’s a destination that has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. Ever since I saw photos from my grandparents trip there when I was a child. I carefully clutched the mother of pearl Bible they gave my mother to carry down the aisle, a gift from the Holy Land. Knowing […]
