    Today, I packed up my backpack and reluctantly pried myself out of the awesome Yellow House in Antigua to hop on a shuttle van bound for the town of Panajachel on the shores of Lago de Atitlan a couple of hours west. After circling around the bumpy cobblestone streets of Antigua to pick up a few more travelers, the van surprisingly only got half way full.

    Welcome to the best hostel breakfast ever at the Yellow House in Antigua, Guatemala.
    Welcome to the best hostel breakfast ever at the Yellow House in Antigua, Guatemala.

    Let’s talk about breakfast at hostels. Usually, they’re really small and simple–maybe a pancake with a side of fruit like banana, pineapple and melon; or toast, rice and an egg. Imagine my surprise this morning by the major feast (which is served every day) at the Yellow House hostel. I’m talking a big chunk of pineapple, watermelon, a pancake, tomatoes, potatoes, beans and–as if that weren’t enough–a veggie burrito.

    Entering Honduras at the immigration office in El Gausale.

    Around midnight–12:45 am to be precise–my alarm went off after just two hours of sleep, signaling me to wake the heck up and finish packing a couple of last things into my backpack to get ready for my 16-hour shuttle van ride from Leon, Nicaragua to Antigua, Guatemala. As soon as I turned on the light and started to get ready, a French girl in the next bed over asked if she could turn off the light. Seriously? I told her I was leaving and that I needed the light on in order to accomplish that. A minute later, I looked behind me and some French guy was sitting on his bed 10 feet away giving me the death glare. What is up with these people? They should know that travelers in hostels come and go at all hours of the day and night, and if they don’t like it, they should either pay for a private room or stay home.
