Travel Days

Visiting Lanquin and Semuc Champey in Guatemala


View World Trip 2012 - Actual on dariusz's travel map.

Today was a typical travel day. Travel days are the days when you're going from one destination to another which is far enough away that the trip takes you most if not all of the day. It is exhausting and painful with the driver of the tiny bus cramming 15 people or so into a vehicle half the size of a regular mini-van.

The good news is that you often meet so many interesting people on your way and the destination is usually worth it. However, I am sooo jealous of Kristine on these days. She has the extremely enviable ability to fall asleep in virtually ANY conditions. She had her head on my shoulder and on a few occasions the road got so bumpy that her head bounced off it HARD 3 times in a row. Nothing! she kept sleeping! Then I accidently shrugged her off while talking to some people in the van and they started laughing because kristines head bounced off my shoulder and all the way to the window on the other side. She kept on sleeping like a baby!

I digress...

Travel days are tiring but they are worth it because you get to places like these...
