11 Coolest Things to Do In Xela (Quetzaltenango)

11 Coolest Things to Do In Xela (Quetzaltenango)

At the end of 2014, I spent a couple of months in Guatemala, and Xela (otherwise known as Quetzaltenango) was definitely my favourite spot there. It’s not the prettiest spot in Guatemala, it’s definitely not the warmest, but it has something. The city has a bit of grit to it, but it still feels totally...

Spooky and beautiful: Photos from Xela’s cemetery

When the hostel owner in Xela (Quetzaltenenago in full) told me that one of her favourite places in her home city is the local cemetery, I raised an eyebrow and got on with my day. But as I was in Xela for longer than I expected, I took the opportunity to visit the cemetery, and...

I have now found my way to my little bungalow and my language school in San Pedro La Laguna, Guatemala – hoorah! Before I arrived, the school owner did tell me via email that “the bungalow is basic”. No worries, I replied, I can live in a basic way. But being confronted with the basic...

I’m moving to Guatemala – because I need to learn Spanish

Big news. After spending almost a year in Mexico, it is time for me to pack my bags and move on. Where to? Guatemala. Why? Because I need to learn Spanish. Yes yes, I know what you are thinking. I am in a Spanish speaking country right now and surely I can find some way...
