Our Journey

Lisa’s Birthday Dinner – Bcos Sharing Makes Us Feel Rich

Happy Birthday Lisa!

“肚子餓嗎?我買你們吃飯!(literally meaning: Are you hungry? I’ll buy you lunch!)” Lisa asked in Mandarin (she’d spent a couple of years in China before this) after we returned to Pana from our sharing session in Santiago. And so we headed to one of Lisa’s favorite eateries for lunch together: There were many-a-times We frustrate ourselves at the […]

Sharing with local students at Santiago – “El sueño que tienes en tu mano…”

Group Photo with everyone from the Santiago Atitlan School Sharing

Lisa was introduced to us by our Panajachel Couchsurfing host, Helga. She is in Guatemala working with a program called Access as a teacher trainer with English classes in certain small towns around Lake Atitlan. When she heard about our project and our school visits, she sent us an email invitation to ask if we’d […]

Sacred Art Teahouse Sharing – Walking the 3 Worlds, Finding Myself, I have LOVE

"We want to give these to you!"

Sarah connected us to Ajna, the owner of Sacred Art Teahouse and we co-organised a sharing session at her place during our stay in San Marcos. And this post’s title is basically sums up our experiences at the sharing. Walking the 3 Worlds “Tell them what your dream is, Robin. I like what you said […]

San Marcos with Sarah – Everything in its own perfect timing

And there were 4!

We met Sarah, a midwife cum doula from New York, en route her dream in Guatemala, at our IslaVerde sharing session. When we asked the people who came to the sharing to share their dreams with us on their hands, Sarah wrote: A school for midwives that will inspire a local and global shift in […]

Mikaso Hotel – Space for Nourishment

Guatemala Dream 022

We left IslaVerde, restored and ready for to continue on our journey. Waiting for us on San Pedro de la Laguna, was our hostess, Laurence from Mikaso Hotel. At the beginning of this journey, we found it difficult for us to reach out and ask for help – be it in sponsorship for our gear, […]

Hiking Tzununá with Nile – Drenched in Abundance

Soaking every bit of it up

During our Retreat on IslaVerde, we met a resident living in the neighbouring pueblo, Jaibalito. His name is Nile; and he attended our sharing session at IslaVerde. After the session, he invited us to hike the “Tzununá falls” with him. “It was where I wrote my book. There used to be a trail there, but […]

IslaVerde – the island where we “came ashore”

Collected thoughts, Restored souls

Cyanobacteria. The blue-green algae choking up Lake Atitlan due to pollution from the people living around the lake. This was the sight that greeted us throughout our 15 minute boat-ride across the lake from Panajachel to Santa Cruz de la Laguna, where our new host, IslaVerde awaits. And it perfectly reflected our state of being […]

Chinitas’ Auntie Ling – The “Asian” Flavors of Life

Perhaps it was the “Free Wi-Fi” sign that drew us into the Chinitas. For 12Q a pot of tea that was shared between us, we plonked ourselves in Chinitas to work on our laptops for our first couple of days in Guatemala – Tay working on the videos and Val working on emails to build […]

Panajachel Colegio Internacional – A Door of Hope

Guatemala Dream 002

Our journey in Guatemala began with an awkward silence. A silence that hushed us from asking the question, “What is your dream?” here. The story of Lemar’s “I don’t want to think about that (her dream)” and a young Guatemalan boy’s “Shit you” left us wondering – is there any point of this project in […]

Thank you for S*H*I*T

Little Guatemalan Boy

We are grateful for… The fact that we are beginning this list of gratitude. Despite having the poverty, the desperateness of everything and everyone get to us in a way that makes us almost “pek cek (frustrated)”. Ok, VERY pek cek. We’ve had the words “Shit.” “You.” stumbled out of the mouth of a hardly […]

Mayan Homestay Experience – “Lemar”, cual es tu sueño?

When we were making decisions to travel through Latin America, we decided that we’d take shuttles/buses whenever we have to cross borders. Having to transport our equipment, bicycles and ourselves safely across immigration was simply not worth the risk. And so, we got into Lake Atitlan, Guatemala from San Cristobal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico; […]

Mexico – Reforma Estado on 20 February 2011

The Reforma - Estado

We need to be wiser with our media interviews. We need to learn to say, “no” to reporters who simply place the recorder in our faces and then do everything except listen during the interview. We’ve got furious friends who wrote to the journalist and the editor to correct the mistakes. But no replies, nada. […]
