Made a more permanent home this time around. Rented a house near Cerro de la Cruz, got fresh food at the market every week, integrated with the locals as I was dating an Antigueno the duration of my time. Truly felt at home and now have lots of local and insider information. Took several day trips to Guatemala City, Lago Atitlan (must go see Maximon if you go!), Hobbitenango, Monterrico and Tikal and Flores.

The city of 4 levels from hilltops to underground the roads that wind around in and between buildings and mountains are magical. The city feels colonial and this was probably my favorite city ever to get lost in. There is something unexpected behind every turn. How the mailman gets to some of the houses still perplexes me. Took some day trips to Dolores Hidalgo and San Miguel de Allende. This region is very historically important to Mexico and definitely worth a trip for history buffs.

Beautiful city, I studied abroad here back in 2013 at UT Austinยดs Casa Herrera learning Maya archeology and Spanish Colonial history. Went to Monterrico a black sand beach on the Pacific coast as well several fincas and coffee farms in the surrounding valley.

    Lived in Antigua for over a year and I absolutely loved it! Itยดs called the city of eternal spring because the weather is like a perfect spring day all year round. There are two seasons, rainy and non-rainy but in rainy season (May-Oct) it only rains for 3-4 hours in the afternoon then stops. It makes everything lush and green which is another reason they call it the city of perpetual roses and eternal spring. Itยดs a small city so very easily to walk and see everything.

    All in, Austin is a good city. We live in Hill Country now so we're a bit removed. But it's beautiful area once you get away from the highways. A good tech scene. Not too expensive (~$2100 for a nice 2 bedroom apt) for the U.S. Has wineries and breweries galore. Not a great place if you are a recovering alcoholic (!). Cons: extremely hot in the summer; reaches 110 F (43.3 C) in summer afternoons from June - September. Not very diverse. Highways are loud and obnoxious.

    Super expensive city, with some nice tourist attractions. Wouldn't recommend staying here for a longer time as price levels are almost Parisienne. Also, you can easily see all the good spots within 3 days or so. Pros: - nice tourist attractions (quite a couple of them) - many food options - people are open & friendly Cons: - hella expensive - limited vegan food options - you should at least understand some Dutch or French to survive here

    I recently visited Amsterdam for the third time (and the first time since 2018). I personally think it's a little overrated, but a cool place to visit nonetheless. The architecture is beautiful, and there are lots of good places to eat. I don't like the main area of the canals in the city centre; it smells of weed and is often packed. However, the outer edges - such as the Jordaan district - are less busy and more interesting in my opinion. One thing that surprised me is how much trash was o

    Seattle is a great city, especially if you like nature, there are plenty of outdoor activities to do all year round. People are generally open-minded and friendly. The cost of living is high but it allows you to be able to afford other places on earth easily if you can find a job here. You can also find plenty of good restaurants and arts around in the city. I recommend to stay at least 3-6 months to get the feel of living a PNW life.

    I wanted to love BA, but it's one of the noisiest and dirtiest cities I've visited, with diesel engines, dog shit and litter everywhere. The people are deeply political and conversations will get heated, and as a visitor you're mostly expected to keep your opinion to yourself. The political and economic backdrop is wild and broadly I found the locals to be quite arrogant and confrontational. It's warm, the weather, steak and wine are great, the queer party scene is good, and some of the peopl

    Just spent almost two weeks here after a two week stay in SMA. This is a very pretty town, but 2 weeks is too long (3 days max if you just want to vacation). There are many many steps and hills, so walking is the best way to get around. I felt safe in the tourist areas, but with many narrow passageways, be careful if you are alone. There is a lot of dogs barking at all hours that echo due to this area being a valley. There is very little green space. Also, not sure if there was some recent

    San Cris is actually dangerous and getting more dangerous, so know that if you go there. Of course, nomads in their bubbles will rarely see it but do a simple google search of news related, there's been a huge uptick in violence over the past few years. I experienced it while living there. Personally really wouldn't recommend to people unless you like the idea of being in a city that is going to eventually become a warzone
