So it’s technically spring, but today I was still bundled up in layers fighting off the cold wind on my commute to work... Couldn’t help but wish Carisa and I were back in Guatemala with the perfectly sunny, beautiful weather out on the water, ready to hike a volcano! 😁💪
Had to stop 150 meters down and 1.5km short of the top as it was getting late and misty and dark :( That was a hard one to give up, but that rock climbing was pretty scary, walking on the thread between two cliffs and freezing the night up there didn't seem like such a good idea.
It was way harder than I expected. Passed 4,000m of elevation, every step was heavy!

Fun Fact: Als wir damals auf Bali waren und der Vulkan Gung Agung drohte auszubrechen, sind wir kurzerhand von Ubud früher abgereist Richtung Süden, weil wir nach einem kleinen Erdbeben ein merkwürdiges Gefühl hatten... Zwei Jahre später liegen wir gemütlich im Zelt auf einem Vulkan in Guatemala, schauen einem anderen Vulkan in zwei Kilometern Luftlinie beim Ausbruch zu und bekommen den Mund vor lauter Faszination nicht zu. 😯
Volcano time! We spent two days hiking Volcan Acatenango. While ascending in the early morning, we were lucky to meet experienced mountaineer @cesiasocoy from Guatemala City and teamed up to hike to the camp. The attraction of Acatenango besides the 3900-something summit is the neighbouring active Volcan Fuego. Cesia and Felix hiked up to its ridge in the cloudy afternoon. The feeling of being on an active volcano and hearing the regular eruptions every 10-15 minutes was incredible! During sunset, the eruptions started to glow in the twilight and throughout the night we had a clear view on the erupting volcano spewing magma onto the slopes on both sides. Every eruption would wake us with a bang, prompting us to unzip the tent and gaze at this natural spectacle. Waking at four o'clock, we put on all our layers and scrambled up the last couple of hundred meters to the summit where we watched the last visible eruptions as the sun started rising.
