Dear readers,

As you may or may not know, I have a mixed background. My father is Dutch and my mother is Guatemalan. As a family, we used to go to Guatemala every year during summer to visit our family, but I've not been there since I was 13 due to the fact that Guatemala unfortunately gets more dangerous every single year. It is now almost 13 years since I last visited my country, but I never forget it and I will definitely go their in time when the situation in Guatemala improves. Hopefully, that will be soon! However, I know many people are not aware what a beautiful country Guatemala really is and therefore I thought it would be a great idea to give it some attention here on my blog. Hopefully you like what you see! Please tell me if you do! I would really appreciate it!

Love, Melissa

You will find all sorts of animals in Guatemala, from apes to iguanas to parrots!
