From time to time, Alan and I will visit local cafés to get some work done and enjoy a latte or cappuccino or two. I know we are travelling, but we still need WiFi! And it’s nice sometimes to feel some familiarity in a place that has such a different culture and pace of life to “home” – sipping on a coffee together between adventures is a way to unwind and reflect, as well as work on this blog for you guys and other projects.
Three and half years ago, Alan and I spent four months backpacking through India, using a Lonely Planet book to guide us for the trip, and we also used a Lonely Planet guide for our tour through Central America. Lonely Planet is an absolute godsend for travelers and gives a lot of great advice on where to eat, must-see places, and recommendations on where to stay. It’s been a while since we picked up our beloved guidebook, though, and it’s safe to say things change pretty quickly, even in places where the pace of life is a lot slower than back home.
