Hiking Acatenango volcano in Guatemala

Hiking Acatenango volcano in Guatemala

It’s kind of a given that you will hike a volcano when visiting Guatemala, the most popular choice being Acatenango, which is a short drive from Antigua. To be honest I thought it would be easy and didn’t really prepare myself for how hard it was going to be. The struggle was most definitely real but, oh so worth it!

Flying into Cancun in Mexico is relatively cheap, as most destinations in the world fly here – in my opinion, it’s better to get out of Cancun as quickly as you can! Don’t get me wrong, if you have plenty of money and can afford to stay in the “Hotel Zone” then maybe you will enjoy it, but for a…

How to prepare for a round the world trip

If I had a pound for the amount of people who told me “they wish they could leave everything behind and travel the world,” I would be quite rich!
