I’m always surprised at how few Americans visit Central America, with the exception of expensive, western-monopolized, crocks-with-socks Costa Rica. There are so many countries in this region where you can get off a fucking resort and have a blast for less money. Like Guatemala! Here are my best tips for traveling this gorgeous country!
I went through six different titles and finally had to settle on the most blunt one. I fucking love Montreal. I cannot for the life of me understand why New Yorkers willingly get stuck in Hamptons traffic for six fucking hours, instead of just heading over to our neighbors in the north.
Two of the crunchiest hippie towns I have ever visited were Nimbin, Australia and San Marcos, Guatemala.

If you are only able to go to one Island in NZ, make it the South. It really is as spectacular as everyone says. I highly recommend renting a car to get around (I got a cheap one from Ace Rentals).

Most people will pretty eagerly say South, and I’m not going to disagree with them; the South is a mind fuck of beauty. But the North Island has some gems as well, and if you have the time I highly recommend checking out both spots. Here is a photo journal (featuring #truetea commentary and some tips and tricks) of my two weeks in the North Island!
