Orlando hangs..

After my last whirlwind trip it was back into training mode for my first time attending USA touch nationals in Orlando. We had a ladies team (for the first time) and a couple of men’s teams that were traveling.

Sporting trips and islands times..

The June long weekend meant another weekend in New York, this time for a touch rugby tournament.  A bit of a last minute plan but it was great fun.  As it was a new sport to me it was great to see other teams and play a few more games.

The winning mixed team!

A cold Easter in the snow..

Next up was Easter where I met my Dad in New York City for some more exploring.

It was cold, very cold. But the sun was out and skies were blue so I could not complain. As my Dad had arrived a couple days before me, he managed to check out most of the touristy sites already..

Exploring the Concrete Jungle..

My first trip to New York was with my housemate to go to Governor’s Ball Music Festival – what better reason to make a trip to New York than for a three-day music festival?!

As soon as we landed it was straight for a massive slice of pizza – yum! With our bellies full, we crashed out at our hostel in Brooklyn ready for our big day the next day full of exploring.

Third time lucky in Guatemala..

My third time in Guatemala to finish off the sights I had yet to explore..

My first day in Antigua, Guatemala, I went on an organised tour which visited various places such as where the chicken busses get done up, coffin maker and a school which was run by a NGO. Afterwards I explored the streets of Antigua and came across the impressive Santa Dominica and walked through the massive markets.. Antigua was cold.

Road tripping through Mexico, Guatemala and El Salvador..

Our first stop was Haultco and eventually we found a place to stay that could fit all six of us in the same room – now this was definitely different to what we had just spent the last couple of weeks in. There were two double beds and they bought in another mattress, which pretty much took up the entire floor space. We also had to lug all our belongings into the room as there was no way we were leaving anything in the car, especially with easy access through the back window (and half the doors not locking)..
