These are the stories from our journeys, about the people, the food, the adventures. We hope our words might inspire you to step out of your comfort zone and do something you’ve never done before, visit a different country, try a new food, take a day off and drive through the countryside... to really live the life you have. Thank you for taking the time to visit this site, and I hope you will be able to get something from within these pages that encourages you to take control and make the necessary changes to bring about a life truly lived.
While I sat there enjoying this sweet-salty snack, it occurred to me that in a few short days, I’d be leaving on this incredible journey. Although I’m sure that certain grocery stores, in a few cities, in the occasional country, might carry these delicious bites; the likelihood of finding them again soon may prove dubious.
Juayua is a small village on the Ruta de la Flores in El Salvador, a popular tourist route consisting of several small villages in the cool highlands of the Northwestern edge of the country. Aside from the main pull with backpackers of the hikes to surrounding waterfalls in the area, our reason for visiting Juayua was much more specific.
While most of the non-surfing crowd tend to move on fairly quickly, two Germans we met in town had heard about a little waterfall that was supposedly quite beautiful and definitely worth checking out. They asked if we wanted to tag along with them for the hike, which for us was a definite yes; we’re always looking for these unique experiences.
Like the islands of southern Thailand or the beaches of Goa. Certain places have a vibe, a feeling unexplainable to those who’ve never been, but one that’s fluent to those who have spent even the briefest moment in such places. San Pedro la Laguna is definitely one of these spots.
It’s been many years since we’ve done any real travel; meaning spending an extended period of time in developing countries, where schedules and timelines only exist on paper. While this definitely isn’t something new to us, the journey from San Cristobal to San Pedro was slightly less than smooth.
