To cap off our Guatemalan adventure we went to Lake Atitlan.
We parked in Panajachel and took a boat to our destination: the heavenly La Casa Del Mundo.
I am ashamed to post these pictures because none of them come close to capturing how beautiful this place is.
After a quick scorpion check in our room...yes seriously...we sat down for a lovely candlelit dinner.
We spent hours chatting with each other and John a guest attending a writing retreat.
Can I please sit at that table for a cup of tea again soon?!?
After dinner Shawn and I stayed up talking and attempting to make necklaces for hours. The conversation was great but our necklaces were a complete failure. The beads kept falling off every time we got to the end of the strand and tried to tie it. It was hilariously frustrating!
Did I mention the view? This is what I woke up to in the morning.
The view outside our room.
I love this picture, thanks to Laura for sharing it! This is where Laura and JaNahn enjoyed their morning.
My morning :)
Most of my day was spent here. Can you blame me?
Quesadilla lunch, laughing at Casper, chatting a bit more with john and then more hammocks of course!
In the afternoon I showered, sat in the hammock and was desperately wishing that Joel was there with me. I finished my day with a lovely little nap in this hammock.
In the afternoon we took the boat back to Panajachel. We did a little bit of shopping because JaNahn had to take the boat back to the hotel for her forgotten purse. I picked up a magnet for Aria, didn't buy shoes (still regret that decision) and spotted the hotel and restaurant I was at in 2008 during my trip with my mom.
I slept on the drive to Guate because of the Dramamine I took on the boat ride. No more dramamine ever. I'd rather feel sick than be unable to stay awake! We arrived at Rob's house that evening. Ate a lentil, tomato, and yam dish (Rob can you please move in with me and cook for us!?!) packed and slept hard.
We all woke up at 5:00 to head to the airport.
I can't believe this trip even happened.
I can't believe its over.
I'm happy to be home with my family.
I hope more travels are in my future!
