My wish list for this winter’s digital nomad base was somewhere quiet, scenic and sunny, with decent WiFi, apartments for rent, and yoga classes. With the exception of decent WiFi (it depends on your definition) we found all of that in San Marcos La Laguna, a village on Lake Atitlán in the highlands of Guatemala, where we just spent two and a half months.
We weren’t in Guatemala to travel; we were there to live. We settled down for a few months in the small Mayan village of San Marcos La Laguna on the shores of magnificent Lake Atitlan, one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. Every day we woke up to views of the lake and its volcanoes, swam in its cool waters, and took yoga classes on its shore.
We’re excited to announce the launch of Trail Wallet 3, now available in the App Store!
Trail Wallet has been keeping travellers on budget for over two years, starting from very humble beginnings and evolving into something that provides a good chunk of our monthly income and boasts over 23,000 downloads and 172 reviews worldwide with an average rating of 4.4 stars. Which is nuts, you guys!
It’s no secret that Simon is a huge fan of Disney. I was dubious about visiting as an adult, but he converted me with trips to Disney in Florida and Japan. Disney is an escape for us, a world where life has a soundtrack, everyone is happy, and fun is effortless. While we were in San Diego there’s no way Simon was going to miss the opportunity to visit a new (to us) Disney park in Los Angeles.
Our impression of a new city is often influenced by the people we experience it with, more than the place itself. Would we have enjoyed our time in San Diego as much if we hadn’t stayed with our friends Tom and Jenny? Surely not, although San Diego has a lot to offer: warm, sunny weather even in late October; a laid-back outdoor lifestyle with beaches, parks, and hikes nearby; and delicious vegan-friendly food.
