The Colors of Semana Santa

The Colors of Semana Santa

After spending an awesome day with friends in Antigua, we awoke to the biggest festivities to celebrate Semana Santa, Easter Holy Week, in this predominantly Catholic city. We had been told that 4am was the best time to start seeing people create the beautiful carpets of colored sawdust, flowers, and fruits and vegetables (and beat the crowds). 4 am?!  Are you KIDDING me?!! Well, needless to say…our...

Semana Santa in Antigua with Friends

Semana Santa in Antigua with Friends

On our first morning in Antigua, we woke up to noisy birds outside of our rental villa we were sharing with our new friends from A King’s Life. It’s amazing to me how easy it is to be instant friends with someone you have never met in person before. We had recently chatted online and read each other’s blogs, but the previous day was the first time we had met the King family! We were instant...

Why we love Central America

Why we love Central America

I’m always a little bit shocked (and perhaps miffed) when people ask us WHY we like Mexico (which isn’t technically Central America, but close enough).  They say it with this little bit of disdain, wondering how we could possibly prefer anything less than 1st quality living all of the time. After living and traveling in Mexico for nearly 2 years, as well as making trips to Belize and...

Antigua Guatemala at night

Antigua Guatemala at night

Like any Latin American country, Guatemala comes to life at night! The central plaza in Antigua, Guatemala has a stunning chapel that glows in the darkness! Street performers come out to make their money for the night… And the famous archway of Antigua sets the tone over its wide cobblestone streets. Several plazas throughout town can be found full of street food and vendors during the holidays. We...
