Tomorrow we leave on our next trip. We are driving to Spring (Houston area), TX with stops in Tucson, AZ, El Paso, TX and probably Fredericksburg, TX. Then, we are flying from IAH on March 17, United flight 1248 to Guatemala City. Jim’s sister, JoAnn is flying with us and staying 6 nights. We are meeting our friends Paul and Carol in Guatemala and they will be with us the full 2 weeks, and even staying longer to see the Mayan ruins at Tikal.
Our first week in Guatemala, we are staying in Antigua at Posada Don Valentino (www.posadadonvalentino.com). We will do day trips from this location. Antigua is a historical colonial city. We spent a few hours there off a cruise, in Oct. 2009. The 2nd week we are staying in Panajachel on Lake Atitlan, at the Posada de los Volcanes (posadadelosvalcanes.com). This lake is a crater lake with volcanoes and many small villages surrounding it. Our last night will be near the airport in Guatemala City at the Hostal Villa Toscana. We fly back to IAH on March 31 on United Flight 1247.
We plan on staying 2 or 3 days with JoAnn and John in Spring, TX and then drive home; arriving April 7 or 8. We will have internet access throughout our trip and obviously our cell phone while in USA. I’ll be posting and hopefully adding pictures along the way. I’m almost packed!
