About Me

My photo
After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 125 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.

Antigua's setting is gorgeous, nestled between 3 volcanoes (Volcan Agua, Volcan Acatenango, and Volcan Fuego). The streets are cobblestones and the buildings that line the streets are multicolored. The town of 45,000 has a beautiful Parque Central (Central Park) which is the gathering place for both locals and visitors. The plaza's famous fountain was built in 1738. Across the street from the park is the Catedral de Santiago which was founded in 1542, damaged by earthquakes many times and only partially rebuilt between 1780 and 1820.

GUATEMALA, San Pedro La Laguna


Leaving Thursday for weekend in Antigua and then to El Salvador for 2 weeks before 2 month trip to Philippines. Pictures include great shots of Lake Atitlan and San Pedro from top of Hotel Villa Del Lago ,a picture of my Banana Bread Lady who keeps me from starving in the mornings and my room for past 6 weeks. Private room with balcony on the lake, cable tv, private bathroom all for $5.75 a night. My kind of place.

GUATEMALA, San Pedro (market)


People line the cobblestone streets everyday with everything from produce to shoes to peanuts and macadamia nuts. This is their Walmart.
