Back in Guatemala

Sept 3, 2018

I've been here for a few weeks already, so I might as well make it official.

I'm back in San Pedro la Laguna, Guatemala for a spell.

It's the rainy season, but it certainly isn't very rainy.

Also, I have an awesome housesit.

THR + 4 Years! (July 4, 2018)

July 4, 2018
Sechelt, BC, Canada

Today marks four years since my total hip replacement. Hard to believe it's been that long, but I'm certainly grateful for four years without pain.

The old days sucked!

Weirdly, I was told that the other hip (right) would have to get done. It was showing signs of breaking down (osteoarthritis) way back when.

But even now, there are just a few times when it feels a little off. Not really pain, and certainly nothing like the left hip was pre-surgery.

Anyway, it was the greatest gift to get my mobility back. I take advantage of it every single day. Likewise, I'm thankful every single day.

Hip! Hip! Hurray!

And... back in BC, this time on the Sunshine Coast. I'm here to dog watch, house sit and get healthy.

Roadspill is 15

March 25, 2018
San Pedro la Laguna, Guatemala

It's hard to believe that Roadspill has turned 15. Going back 10-15 years, I'm surprised at how verbose I was. I guess that these days with Facebook, Instagram and Twitter all clamoring for fresh content, the old-skool blog gets forgotten. But it remains as a great diary of my travels.

Speaking of travels, I'm back in San Pedro la Laguna, Guatemala. Rainy season is late, and the town is hazy thanks to numerous forest fires burning up the nearby volcanos. But it's still great to be 'home'!

Here are some pix:

Splash! Lake Atitlan, Guatemala.

And that's all for now. Happy Anniversary, Roadspill! May the travelling never end...

Happy New Year

January 1, 2018

I was in bed long before midnight (NYE isn't my thing) but that means I was up way before the crack of dawn. And what a dawn!

And so we goes....
