    Last night in Mexico

    May 11, 2018 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    It’s been a lot of fun, thanks Mexico! It’s now time to drink a couple of beers and relax.
    Today the Holbox 7 became 3, Belgium headed of to Vera Cruz, then two tomorrow for all of half a day until we catch up with the bonkers Ozzie sisters for fun in Caye Caulker.
    Today went went to a private lake and chilled all day. A great way to spend the day, especially when we had nothing to do and the situation presented itself. Unplanned fun, always the best.
    Mexico has been fun, but I’m ready to move on. Myself and Will are going to make a bit of a b-line for Utila to go diving, and because Belize is going to be pricey.
    First new country of the trip, coming up!

    May 10, 2018 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    So, it’s a massive lake! Last night, I slept in a tent as we got here a day early. The hostel was shite, but for one night, meh. We got up at 6am and went on a kayak tour which cool. Saw a kind of Cenote, just a big black sink hole, but in the side of the lake. Just moved into our proper hostel, it’s like a yacht club, but I can handle it! Saying good bye to the Ozzie sisters, I’ll catch the other later down the continent!Read more

    May 8, 2018 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    This is a bit of a culture shock! So touristy and the ‘party hostel’ we are in is full of dickheads. Shame. The sort that I’ve taken a lot of effort to avoid. Ah well, I guess I have to encounter them at some point, I don’t think they will male it further south than Tulum as you have to think for yourself to get there, anywhere.
    Went to the ruins here today and it was cool, but massively busy. We hired bikes and rode there, peddle came off mine on the way down the coast to find a beach, so had to turn back. Hopefully tonight isn’t going to annoy me too much!
    Manage to get some sleep and left that shithole hostel. Went to Bacala a day early

    Leaving Holbox

    May 7, 2018 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Well, what can I say, Isla Holbox is a very cool place, and from the people that work here, very hard to leave. It’s been a fun week and met an awesome crew of people, so good in fact that we’ll all be in be same hostel in Tulum by tomorrow night. Fwends!
    The highlight was definitely all day gangseter golf cart drinking, so much fun! It doesn’t quite feel like Mexico as you can drink in the street and there are hardly any police. I didn’t get to see an flamingos, but plenty of mosquitos. Dogs everywhere here, all sorts, all just chilling out not really doing much. Kind of aimed it up!
    I couldn’t recommend staying at Hostel Tribu enough. Possibly one of the best I’ve ever stayed in, so hats off! Getting the 3pm ferry back to the mainland, should be in Tulum for sundowners 😎

    Back in Valladolid

    May 2, 2018 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    For one night, hostel was hot as hell! Getting bitten by mossies most nights is a pain! Heading to Isla Holbox today, time to get back to the beach! Left Frank on the bus last night and his ‘Aunty’ heading to Campeche yesterday. I’ve been thinking about heading to Cuba, but now thinking that I’ll save it for another time.

    Merida fail!

    May 1, 2018 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 33 °C

    Due to getting muy loco on Sunday night, Monday was a complete right off. Tried to go to the Mayan museum and after a 40 minute bus ride on a local bus, which cost 32p, we found its shut on a Tuesday. Joy! We ended up looking round a big out of town mall before getting back to the centre and jumping on a busRead more

    Isla Mujeres

    April 25, 2018 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    First day trip of my time in Mexico. The hostel in Cancun is really social, so I took a trip over to the island with a girl from Korea and a guy from Taiwan, both really cool, met them the night before.
    We got in the sea before the storm clouds came over, are some tacos and the first guacamole I’ve have. Bangin!
    Then we hired a golf buggy for a couple of hours and explored the island. Saw some turtles and some amazing sea views. Finished off the day with sundowners on the beach, before getting the ferry back.Pina Colada first though! A perfect day, much fun had!

    Cancun town

    April 24, 2018 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Cool place, Hostel Coco, good people! Perfect start to the trip, instantly made friends with everyone! My Spanish is currently very bad, but I can understand more than I think, especially after half a bottle of tequila! Headed to Playa Delphina and had a chill
