Seriously! I saw these photos posted by Albert Dros on his recent trip to Guatemala and I was in shock. Mostly because they are absolutely incredible but also because we took pictures of the EXACT same event when our family was in Guatemala.
You can very plainly see the photos we took (below) are nothing like those above, probably because we chose to enjoy the eruption a good safe distance away on our hotel roof in Antigua.

Try explaining to your three young children what a BIG DEAL it is to see a volcano erupting. I mean, how many people can say they’ve seen lava pouring down a mountain side in person?!?!
My oldest, who had just finished reading a book about Pompeii, was definitely feeling more fear than awe. My middle son was just thrilled he got to stay up past bedtime to see it. And my youngest (who we had recently adopted from Thailand) had no concept of what a volcano was.
But my husband and I knew, we knew what an incredible, once in a life time opportunity we were experiencing. We choose to travel with our kids for these exact moments! You know, the ones you can’t really plan for but get to marvel at anyway.
