IMG_5312

[google1][pinit count=”vertical” url=”http://www.beersandbeans.com” float=”right”] Last week we were in Guatemala with a fantastic non-profit, Cooperative For Education. We had an amazing time traveling through the country and getting a behind-the-scenes look at the education system in Guatemala. We also saw magnificent vistas, tasted amazing new foods and saw an intimate side of the country we never would have seen on our own. Over the next several weeks we’ll be sharing our Guatemalan experiences with you….

France by Kristen Grennan

Be sure to check out her full bio below. All photos in this post are provided by Kristen.

First Impressions: Cortanovci and the Things I Learned with WWOOF Serbia

beersandbeans_serbian village

[google1] Standing in a darkened train compartment waving goodbye to Katarina Milenkovic, co-founder of WWOOF Serbia, at the Belgrade Station, I had the electric nervousness I often get when visiting a foreign place I know little about. As the old, reliable Soviet-era train rattled into the dark countryside, Beth and I sat silent, desperately grasping to the pronunciation of our stop: Cortanovci.

[google1] In less than 12 hours, we will be heading to Logan International Airport in Boston to embark on a three month journey through Europe, Turkey and a few points in between. As some of you may know, we never imagined we’d find ourselves back in Europe so soon after our trip there last fall. It’s not that we didn’t want to go back (we both adore Europe), we just knew that our budget couldn’t…

We were planning on going directly to Thailand but a couple of really cool projects popped up in Europe that we simple can’t ignore. We are still in the planning phases but as soon as they are finalized (hopefully in the next week…
