Hi folks, I wanted to share a small, but special trip my daughter and I made this last November. My daughter Ericka, is 12 yrs. old, and even though she has join me in a few short trips on the bike before, this was her first “long” trip. For starters, this was the first time she had to pack to a motorcycle trip.. We live near Guatemala City, and I choose a route that will take us through the coastal warm side of the country and return through the mountainous, colder and more scenic side. For those wanting to have a better idea of the route, this is what we did. This route was about 580 km total, with a quite few more stops than I would usually do if I were travelling alone. After a few months of anticipation, the big day arrived and the “Kanalla”, our Ktm 990 Adv was loaded and ready to go. We kissed Mom and our smaller daughter goodbye (who is already expecting her big bike ride with me in a couple of years). After some last minute, technical difficulties with the cheap Chinese intercoms I bought from eBay for this particular trip, we’re finally ready to go… Once we were on the road, our first planned stop was San Lucas Toliman, Sololá to have breakfast. This little town is right at the shore of Lake Atitlan where you can enjoy some nice views with your breakfast. This being a town with a remarkably high indigenous population and somewhat a tourist destination is expected to find some local arts & crafts for sale at the main entrance of the hotel where we had breakfast. It was also interesting to found some evidence of the so called “cultural clash”, where Halloween meets the “Dia de todos los santos” (Day of all saints) with a mayan shrine twist..
