Road Trip Wednesday is a blog carnival, where YA Highway’s contributors and readers post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody’s take on the topic.
This week’s prompt was: What is the most inspiring setting you’ve ever visited in real life?
There is a waterfall deep in the Guatemalan jungle called the Queen's Bath. The name alone is all it took to invoke images in my mind's eye that were so strong I dream about her shimmering skin and flowing, colorful robes. Her man servant combs her hair and fastens birds of paradise to her long black tresses. My husband and I went here on our honey moon. the sediments in the water piled up like domed stalagmites, making the water gush over it like a fountain. There were toucans, and spider monkeys in the hundred year old rubber trees above us. I'll never forget it as long as I live.
