Our bus arrived into Chetumal, which is a border town, around 8.30am. No rest for the wicked, we had to catch a taxi to the other side of town to another bus company which would take us across the border into Belize and to our final destination for today – Orange Walk. The bus company … Continue reading Day 312 | Belize | Orange Walk | Getting There
This morning after breakfast we had to get ourselves packed up once again. Then we left our bags and went out for a wander. We stopped into one shop and got chatting to one guy who lives here but is from Austin, Texas for ages. He talked about the town and the art in the … Continue reading Day 311 | Mexico | Chetumal | Back on the Bus
Our bus arrived into San Cristobal de la Casas around 8am. I feel that I slept a little better than I was expecting on the bus, but let’s be honest it was never going to be great. Loaded up with our packs, we then walked the half hour or so to our hostel. When we … Continue reading Day 310 | Mexico | San Cristobal de la Casas | Market, Rain, Relax
After breakfast at our AirBnb this morning we headed out and about again. It might seem a little odd, but our first destination was the Mueso de la Filatelia Oaxaca (ie the Stamp Collecting Museum). The place was pretty cool. Apparently this one guy loved everything postal so had pulled together his private collection and … Continue reading Day 309 | Mexico | Oaxaca | Stamp On
This morning was a bit of a lazy start, plus we also had to pack everything up and move. We wanted to stay a couple of extra nights than what we had originally booked, however due to all the festivals that are on this weekend, the place we were staying was booked out. We pretty … Continue reading Day 308 | Mexico | Oaxaca | A Taste of Oaxaca
Now that we are tequila experts (or perhaps not!), we were keen to go and learn some more about Mezcal - the other side of the coin, if you will. As we enjoyed our tequila tour so much, we decided to book again with the same company Experience Mezcal for all our Mezcal-ling needs! As … Continue reading Day 307 | Mexico | Oaxaca | Can’t Have the Yin Without the Yang
After our pretty restful day yesterday, we were ready to hit the ground running today. Our first stop of the day was Museo de las Culturas de Oaxaca which gave a very thorough look at the culture of the Oaxaca region. The museum itself is housed inside an old convent, which was an absolutely stunning building … Continue reading Day 306 | Mexico | Oaxaca | Did Someone Say Culture?
This morning we were up at ridiculous-o'clock ie 5am so that we could get to our early morning flight to Oaxaca. We decided to fly this leg of the journey because it was reasonably priced, it was a bloody long way, and we knew we were going to have some other long bus rides coming … Continue reading Day 305 | Mexico | Oaxaca | Being Lazy…Sort of
This morning we moved house. We moved closer to the city because firstly we wanted to extend our stay in Guadalajara by a night, and secondly there was no way we were going to book another night where we were currently. So, because we didn't want to spend the money, we walked the 25 of … Continue reading Day 304 | Mexico | Guadalajara | The Awesomeness of Lucha Libre
Exciting day today, we were hitting up Tequila country!! We have felt our trip in Mexico would not have been complete unless we went out discovering the tequila territory. We hooked ourselves up on a tour through Experience Tequila. This was a more intimate tour (in the end there were only 3 of us on … Continue reading Day 303 | Mexico | Guadalajara | Tequila Time!
