land of eternal spring

thinking about my next meal

allyson celebrates the holidays with family and loved ones in guatemala. the captivating trip also commemorates her completion of school..forever! 

destination: guatemala

purpose of journey: celebrate christmas with family; celebrate finishing school . . . forever

never travel without: pedialyte

favorite outfit you packed: one of my prized possessions - a vintage comme des garçons pastel checkered asymmetrical skirt

how many pairs of shoes: 3; purple doc marten oxfords, comme des garçons converse, vagabond platform boots that i did not end up wearing because comfort

what were you listening to: lots of reggaeton

favorite meal: pepían, a traditional guatemalan soup made with peppers, veggies, meat, pumpkin seeds, etc. - think a spicier and more savory version of traditional mole.

highlight of the trip: waking up at 3:30 in the morning to hike up a mountain half asleep and watch the sunrise with the person that i love

la recolección; ruins of a church, monastery from the 1700’s

but i’m lactose intolerant / drying out corn to feed the chickens

check my youtube channel for in depth reviews on guatemala’s chip game / pan dulce

passenger views / the only relevant barber shop tbh

quetzaltenango / sunrise views in san pedro la laguna, volcanoes off in the distance

just me and my paleta

pine needles sprinkled on the floor for christmas
