This morning before anything, we had to check out of our current accommodation, we wanted to stay at our AirBnb for a couple more days, but unfortunately it was already booked. Thankfully we were only just down the road at Hotel MX Roma, so we got to drop off our bags before heading into the … Continue reading Day 293 | Mexico | Mexico City | Ancient Worlds
After the movie last night, we were all prepped to go and visit the Frida museum. So glad that we had read reviews that advised that we should buy our tickets early as the line was almost around the block, whereas, we got to walk straight in. The museum was a lot better than I … Continue reading Day 292 | Mexico | Mexico City | Frida…Enough Said
First things first this morning, we ventured out and about to grab ourselves a bite to eat and a coffee from Panaderia Rosetta. We were both pretty pumped to have a decent coffee so it definitely put a hop, skip and a jump into our step to head out and explore the city. We are … Continue reading Day 291 | Mexico | Mexico City | Getting to know you
So our visit here in Isla Mujeres has been brief, as was intended, as our sole purpose was to check out the whale sharks and this we have done. I am still in awe of these amazing creatures and looking at the videos we took it is just incredible and I'm still so blown away … Continue reading Day 290 | Mexico | Mexico City | Here & Then Gone
This morning we had a nice alarm set for 5.30am, but when the reason is to go swimming with whale sharks, you don't tend to mind so much!! We had to be at the dive shop at 7am to get suited up and on the boat so that we could get there ahead of the … Continue reading Day 289 | Mexico | Isla Mujeres | AMAZINGNESS!!!
It was take 2 for the hostel breakfast this morning, before getting ourselves all packed up and ready to go. I still surprise myself how in only a couple of days, with so few things, we can make such a mess of a place with stuff strewn everywhere! Though must admit think have kinda got … Continue reading Day 288 | Mexico | Isla Mujeres | Getting from A to B
After a terrible breakfast yesterday, we couldn't face it again today, so we headed over to Opia Kitchen & Coffee for a tasty bagel and coffee. Breakfast done, we headed down to the bus station and headed out to Uxmal. We left a little late, and then it was a 2 hour bus ride to … Continue reading Day 287 | Mexico | Merida | There’s Always One Who Ruins it for Everyone!
Today was the day to go exploring through Merida. We started the day by having a super crappy breakfast at the hostel and then we got going. We first walked down to Plaza Grande for a look around. Then we had a little wander through Museum Fernando Garcia Ponce-Macay named after a famous Mexican artist who … Continue reading Day 286 | Mexico | Merida | As Big as Your Head
There was a lot of messing around this morning. Initial plans were we were going to head to Isla Holbox to see the whale sharks, then we found out that they don't actually hang out around that area these days, they are nearer to Isla Mujeres. We were all planned therefore, to head to Isla … Continue reading Day 285 | Mexico | Merida | Where Exactly Are We Going Anyway?
This morning we headed out to Casa de los Venados in the centre of town. This place is an amazing old hacienda that an American couple spent about 8 years restoring. It's not a museum as such as it is their house, however, they are avid Mexican Folk Art collectors and the collection they have … Continue reading Day 284 | Mexico | Valladolid | Folk Art Galore
