Beyond My Every Day World

Route of the Maya 2010

This trip documents my Route of the Maya journey that started on July 21st in El Salvador, went to Honduras, spend most of the time in Guatemala, and ended in Belize. I took this trip with http://www.oattravel.com/ along with 14 other people I had never met before. It turned out to be a life enhancing experience and delivered what our trip leader promised, "a cultural shower."
