My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

Sun, 6 Jan 2013 | By aoifekk | Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry

Colour. Beauty. Passion. Three of the hundreds of adjectives that run through my head when I pick up a National Geographic magazine, as each page turned brings a rush of adventure, life, a world where words are not necessary. Words are a burden. People ... Read more >

Sunday morning we left for the infamous Irtra, the hot spot for Guatemalan Jews for Christmas.  It is a humungous series of hotels and restaurants with two swimming pools, a small bowling alley, mini golf, a spa, raquetball courts, and massive green ... Read more >

Towering Treasures in Tikal

Fri, 4 Jan 2013 | By steve_and_emma | Views [151]

Having taken a huge, largely unnecessary detour to Rio Dulce / Livingston it was time to get back on track and head up north.  Fortunately the morning ‘tour’ boat didn’t attempt to hang around on route so we were soon back in Rio ... Read more >

My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

Fri, 4 Jan 2013 | By troels | Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry

I want to make the world closer. That is why I went to journalism school. And that is why I realised, when I finished school this summer, that I need to put a “photo” in front of my title. I seek to understand people, especially those overlooked by ... Read more >

Hola, from Guatemala City!  I have been in Guatemala for almost 2 weeks now, and so far it has been incredible!  After waking up at 3:00 AM, spending a layover in Houston chatting with a very friendly Guatemalan family, I finally arrived in ... Read more >

Not Such a Sweet Time on the Rio Dulce

Wed, 2 Jan 2013 | By steve_and_emma | Views [414]

It would have been all too easy to lounge around in San Pedro La Laguna for another day but fortunately we’d already bought our shuttle tickets.  There was no way we were going to waste Q180 a head so we were up, packed and at the tour office ... Read more >

Quality Trekking in Quetzaltenango

Mon, 31 Dec 2012 | By steve_and_emma | Views [422]

Much to our delight the locals kindly shorten this to Xela (pronounced shel-la); a derivative of the ancient name for the town.  It was time to move away from Christmas indulgence and lazy travelling and get back to using chicken buses.  Here ... Read more >

A Lazy Christmas on Lago de Atitlan

Getting to Antigua Guatemala

Sun, 23 Dec 2012 | By steve_and_emma | Views [142]

Our 6am tourist shuttle bus ($20) to Antigua duly picked us up and a mere 20mins later we were at La Florida and preparing to cross over into Guatemala.  We were the only vehicle trying to cross at that time and it was a pleasure to go through the ... Read more >

My Scholarship entry - A 'place' I have visited

Wed, 5 Dec 2012 | By festainfinita | Photo Gallery | Scholarship Entry

I'm an adventurer and a chameleon who will try anything once and if I like it, I'll try it twice. When I travel I make sure I know nothing about where I am going. I want to be educated by the people who live wherever I am traveling, not by a book or a ... Read more >
