• Banditos!

    Another drive day to push through but I feel strangely awake and energised. We need to reach within striking distance of the border so we get underway.  We plan on stopping by the largest tree in the world and a beautiful waterfall, however we miss the exit for the tree, and the waterfall doesn’t have …

  • Ruined

    We’re out for 1pm and an exciting day is planned as we head to the Zapotec ruins of Monte Alban. The stones have been here for thousands of years, cut out of the top of a mountain.  I have been looking forward to seeing these sights since leaving home.  Winding up the dusty road, I gain …

  • Mexico City

    I feel oddly refreshed as we rise and pile into the transport. We thank our hosts for their hospitality, and get underway. It’s yet another behemoth drive as we head to Oaxaca, and a pre booked hostel. What starts off as me feeling ok from the night before quickly gives way to the realisation I …

  • Pig

    Slightly uncomfortable night on the sofa which was a little too small, however the lie in compensates and we rise late to wander the city.  Morelia has that old town atmosphere, as it was one of the first to be colonised by Spain. We stroll through busy streets, filled with the hustle and bustle of market …

  • Storm chasers

    After the disappointment of not witnessing my first hurricane; again, we had to hole up in a coffee shop as the storm was ahead of us. This wasn’t an unpleasant experience as I managed to catch up on a few entries in the blog, and mess around on the internet stalking people. A long day …

  • Hurricane!

    Got underway on the early side again and headed West.  Our plan is to cover some more ground today and see some sights later tonight and tomorrow.  The landscape has changed.  Gone the desert, here the trees.  It’s hotter, more humid, and very green.  And probably full of crawling things.  Apart from the long tarmac …

  • Spider!

    Murray spotted a very long, red hair attached to my back as I awoke this morning.  Very reassuring.  I can only hope it was from a girl.  We get underway and push on to finally catch up with the other team in El Rosario.  At the moment we’re having some heavy driving days to cover …

  • I’m not in Kansas anymore

    An early rise to get on the road and put some distance between us and the States. I’m still pretty tired and after last night’s frivolities feel another snooze in the back of the ambulance is in order.  I’m out for pretty much the whole day.  Every time I wake, I see the same landscape …

  • The boy is back in town

    It appears I have managed to keep my ills at bay finally.  I was learning in great detail about the underside of the bunk above me.  Fascinating. I head out in the evening, determined to ensure this island doesn’t get the better of me.  I’m going to force myself to have a good time.  As …

  • Wrecked

    A short lie in prompts interesting discussion as to our next move. We could hit the road and push on, or we could stay for another night and have a chilled day in Cholla Bay.  In the end it’s a no brainer, and we head into town to grab a bite to eat.  The town …
