Nikko

JAPAN | Tuesday, 10 Nov 2009 | Views [746]

This was a place that all my students had recommended I visit and I'd been wowed by tales (and photos) of the stunning red and gold autumn leaves there.  So despite not having much cash, we decided to head out to Nikko for a day trip on our first long ... Read more >


San Cristobal de las Casas (final trip in Mexico)

MEXICO | Tuesday, 15 Sep 2009 | Views [860]

We'd really been looking forward to San Cristobal de las Casas having heard a lot about it and already having made plans of what we were going to do there.  It lived up to our expectations in many ways but it was also the turning point for the weather ... Read more >


Palenque (Final trip in Mexico)

MEXICO | Monday, 14 Sep 2009 | Views [621]

I'd waited so long to get to Palenque and been looking forward to going there for such a long time.  We arrived before it got dark, a day earlier than planned.  We decided not to camp and went to the rainforest area El Panchan to find a cabana for ... Read more >


Villahermosa (Final Trip in Mexico)

MEXICO | Monday, 14 Sep 2009 | Views [762]

Villahermosa was a few hours further south than Catemaco and seemed to mark a transition point on our trip as we were entering the state of Tabasco which has a very different landscape and feeling to Veracruz, where most of our trip had taken place ... Read more >

Catemaco (Final Trip in Mexico)

MEXICO | Wednesday, 26 Aug 2009 | Views [653]

We drove onto Catemaco from Veracruz, glad to be on the road again and excited to be venturing further south and to the first patch of rainforest we would come across.  Catemaco is famous for two things in Mexico: being the witching and sorcery capital ... Read more >

Veracruz (Final Trip in Mexico)

MEXICO | Monday, 10 Aug 2009 | Views [962]

We arrived in Veracruz in the afternoon and went to the hotel to see if we could check in a day earlier than planned.  For a very cheap hotel it was ok and it had a garage which meant we didn't have to leave the car out on Veracruz's busy streets.  ... Read more >

Costa Esmeralda (Final Trip in Mexico)

MEXICO | Wednesday, 29 Jul 2009 | Views [938] | Comments [1]

 We got to the Costa Esmeralda in the afternoon, it wasn't a particularly long journey from El Tajin.  There were so many trailer parks along the coast that it was difficult to know which one to choose.  We figured that they would all be much the same ... Read more >

Papantla and El Tajin

MEXICO | Tuesday, 28 Jul 2009 | Views [1016]

We travelled down to Papantla, and I was in some discomfort due to my sun burns.  The temperatures down there were even higher than La Huasteca and I have to admit that I didn't enjoy my day in Papantla that much.  We didn't stop at the hotel, which ... Read more >

Tampico (Final Trip in Mexico)

MEXICO | Monday, 13 Jul 2009 | Views [1020]

We arrived in Tampico fairly quickly - it was only a short journey from La Huasteca.  Our first impressions weren't the best, it seemed noisy and busy and not very clean.  We found the hotel which was possibly the worst we stayed in on the entire trip.... Read more >


Taninul (Final Trip in Mexico)

MEXICO | Thursday, 9 Jul 2009 | Views [796]

We collected our (again automatic) car on Sunday morning, packed it as quickly as possible, said goodbye to our old house and watched as our friends started to move in to what had been my home for almost 2 years.  And then we headed off to our first ... Read more >
