Me and my mother go back to Guatemala. We have not been there in nearly 10 years. A lot of my mothers family still lives there, although parts of my relatives have moved off to Ireland, The Unites States or The Netherlands, like my mother. We have a very close family, but a spread out one, so we don’t get to see each other that often.
I have been to Guatemala quite a few times in the past, with both my parents, or after they split up, with either my mother or father. On all these occasions we have always taken the time to both spend time in the capital with family and also to see the beautiful villages and diverse nature of the country.
This time I was to spend a month in Guatemala. I wanted to see my family and definitely wanted to see the country again, and this time, by myself. Seen as in the past I was always guided by parents, this time I wanted to see the places I had seen in the past, plus the ones we had never visited before, on my own adventure.
This trip turned out to be exactly what I wanted out of it, and it was better than I had expected. Guatemala is truly one of the most beautiful places in the world…
