MEXICO | Monday, 1 Dec 2008 | Views [315]

We started our trip incredibly early in the morning so that we could get to Teotihuacan early and avoid the heat and the crowds. We really did avoid the heat and it was absolutely freezing when we arrived, but this didn't stop us exploring the ciudadela ... Read more >

We'd been planning this trip for months as a bit of an Independence Day and birthday treat, so we were pretty excited about it. The holiday didn't start out that well as our 10 hour bus ride turned into almost a 13 hour one, there was a lot of traffic ... Read more >

Anyway - the trip was good and bad...  we hired the car and were so so happy with it cos they upgraded us to a car 2 models up from what we'd ordered for only $300 which is about £15 so that seemed like a bargain!!!  We set out at 5:30am but took the ... Read more >

Ciudad Valles and Waterfalls

MEXICO | Wednesday, 14 May 2008 | Views [3003] | Comments [2]

This weekend i felt the need to get away by myself. I'd had a bit of a stressful week and the idea of heading out to the countryside of La Huasteca appealed greatly. So early on Saturday morning I headed out to Ciudad Valles - a town about 5 hours ... Read more >

FRANCE | Sunday, 20 Apr 2008 | Views [455]

When i went to visit Ed in Barcelona this time round, he'd booked a weekend away for us, just over the border in the mountains in France.  I was excited about going somewhere mountainous and snowy and having a nice weekend away - just as long as Ed didn't ... Read more >

Feeling very glad not to be at work, me and Sam and Lesley headed for Guanajuato, via Leon as the only direct first class bus to Guanajuato from San Luis left at 4:25am and we weren't up for starting our holiday quite so early.  So it was quicker to ... Read more >
