Where to Eat in Antigua Guatemala – and More!

This post Where to Eat in Antigua Guatemala – and More! appeared first on The Professional Hobo. When a sailor friend ( on whose boat I lived for a while in the Caribbean) sent me a message asking where my traveling hat was currently parked, I wrote back “Guatemala! I’m currently in Antigua. It’s gorgeous.” “I don’t get it,” he replied. “Where are you – Antigua, or Guatemala? You just said you were in both.” Written like a true sailor, his version of Antigua is a Caribbean island. But if you go...

A beach a day: Antigua boasts a year's worth of sunny spots

Best waterfront bars in the world

Whether you’re overlooking a pristine, tropical beach or the glittering skyline of a booming metropolis, there’s something special about enjoying cocktail hour on the water.

Perfect: Glad to Be Unhappy

In September 1959, guitarist Jim Hall and alto saxophonist Paul Desmond teamed up to record the first in a series of six albums together. The first was called First Place Again (Warner Bros.). The duo was backed by bassist Percy Heath and drummer Connie Kay—two-thirds of the Modern Jazz Quartet. When Desmond and Hall shifted to RCA, they released Desmond Blue (1962), Two of a Mind (1962) with Gerry Mulligan, Take Ten (1963), Bossa Antigua (1964) and Easy Living (1966). All are superb recording...

As American Shrinks at JFK’s Terminal 8, British Airways Moves In to Fill the Void

When American finished building its opulent Terminal 8 complex at New York’s JFK Airport in 2007, there were already plans to expand. What the airline didn’t predict back then is that the expansion would hardly be needed. American has done nothing but shrink at JFK, and that has created opportunity for smaller partners to move in. There has long been one partner, however, that makes the most sense for co-location, but until now that hasn’t been possible. Fortunately, there is now a plan in p...

Jason Holder is not Bill Lumbergh

Jason Holder (via Windies Cricket YouTube) When we named Jason Holder Lord Megachief of Gold 2018 earlier this year, we said that the three Tests against England would give us more of a sense of the true scale and scope of Jasonholderness. In the first Test at Bridgetown, he hit an unbeaten 202 from number eight and the West Indies won. In Antigua, he took five wickets and the West Indies won. In the third Test, he was banned and the West Indies played less well and got bea...

Most romantic cities in the world

It’s time to end the City of Love’s monopoly on romance. It’s not that Paris hasn’t earned its reputation as a couples magnet; it’s just that the world is full of cities that could have been designed by Cupid himself, and it’s about time they get the recognition they deserve. Between major metropolises that have been overlooked by honeymooners for far too long and small, storybook cities that’ll make anyone go full-on soppy, these romantic destinations are perfect for lovebirds. 1.

Second Test notes: Root Maths - The Head of the Snake; Holder's Ban

The parsing of a player's stats in order to sustain a particular argument about their game has a name of quite longstanding: Root Maths. It generally fails because it assumes that stats are somehow infallible as well as immutable, when the truth is that they are as open to interpretation as a Jonny Bairstow straight drive.But after the Antigua Test, when Joe Root's batting average as captain - 1,954 runs at 42.47 - fell more than ten runs behind his average when he's not - 4,594 at 52.80 - the u...

The best places to travel in March

March, for many, is the best month of the year. It’s the month when the perpetual freeze of winter moves away, slowly making room for sunshine, flowers, and all that happy stuff you dream about when snow’s literally blocking your front door. It’s also the month that brings us spring break, spring training, and festivals with burning statues, throwing paint, and Aussies jumping in a river. And then there’s that holiday on the 17th where everybody is suddenly Irish and nobody goes back to work ...

Walking in the Caribbean: sun, sea … and treks

With its gorgeous coastlines, lush interiors and volcanic peaks, the Caribbean is now a hot ticket for hikers, too – as our writer finds in Antigua and MontserratRendezvous Bay is billed as Montserrat’s only white-sand beach; all the others are volcanic black. When we reached it, the secluded cove was deserted. We followed huge, tractor-like tracks left in the sand by green turtles, and floated in the warm, crystal-clear water as pelicans dived for sprats overhead. Then we dried off – and pulled...

How to visit Guatemala post eruption

The old town of Antigua in Guatemala, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is prone to natural disasters. It’s been the scene of earthquakes, floods, avalanches, and volcanic eruptions for centuries. Its unsafe location even lead to its demotion from the capital of the country in the 18th century — it was replaced by Guatemala City, the current capital. Volcán de Fuego, an extremely active volcano, sits less than 10 miles east of Antigua. On June 3, 2018, its eruption killed 194 people and left hund...

5 of the Best Rehab Centers Around the World

Overcoming drug or alcohol addiction and getting clean and sober is a difficult process, but it’s absolutely worthwhile. If you’re considering going to rehab, you’re likely setting yourself up for success. Detoxification and rehabilitation treatment centers offer medical supervision, guidance, and support in a safe, secure setting. On the other hand, going “cold turkey” on your own can be a dangerous way to get clean. Why not give yourself the very best treatment money can buy? Check out this li...

Here’s to a New Year & a New Start in 2019

I won’t be sad to see 2018 leave. It’s been a rough year. For the country. For mental health advocates. For the public mental health system in America. And for me personally. I’m not sure where to begin. But I’m pretty certain where this will end. When every day becomes a chore, and every morning a challenge to wake up to, you know you’re at your wit’s end. 2018 was a lot like that for me. Despite the joys — such as celebrating my 15th wedding anniversary with my wife back in Antigua — it was...
