Sombrerete on a Sunday. The local police, your friendly helper: We rolled into the centro, talked to the local police (that seem to be the way to do it, even though they are heavily armed and there is this strange phenomena or conflict in me if ... Read more >

Nombre De Dios

MEXICO | Friday, 27 Jul 2012 | Views [552]

Saturday the 21st - left town weak and weary, but the sun was out and the short ride to Nombre De Dios easy. It was good to be on the bike again and stop feeling sorry for myself - thunder in the distance, thunder in my body. Shit, how uncomfortable.... Read more >

On our way to Durango - Friday the 13th

MEXICO | Thursday, 19 Jul 2012 | Views [1419]

We left Mazatlan and with it the Pacific Coast, the heat, the humidity, life by the water. The mountains greeted us with an abundance of lime colored almost florescent yellow butterflies. The humidity increased for a while and the little shops selling ... Read more >

MEXICO | Saturday, 14 Jul 2012 | Views [498]

Friday the 13th - really? Mazatlan - the ferry trip was first fun and I was excited as a little kid going to the fair, after dinner, the beautiful sunset, the escape from the lounging room onto the cooler deck for sleeping, the sweet rocking of the ... Read more >

MEXICO | Friday, 13 Jul 2012 | Views [647]

Today is the 10th of July and we are sitting in Pichilingue waiting for the ferry to take us to Mazatlan  tonight  (they only run over night) with a nice cold lime lemonade in a pretty fancy restaurant.  After spending 3 days in La Paz, we were ready ... Read more >

La Paz, July 5th

MEXICO | Friday, 13 Jul 2012 | Views [486]

We left our sweet little place as late as  9:30am  with a head wind and the desert as flat as "piss on a plate" as James would say. Pretty boring and slow with that head wind, but actually not that hot. The Pacific is near.... Just one ... Read more >

Sailboat and beyond...

MEXICO | Friday, 13 Jul 2012 | Views [554]

Thursday the 28th of June. James and I left the little beach Playa Requeson a beach  at 6:30am  and counted down the kilometer at the "mile"markers starting at 95 . Though feeling pretty grungy,  when the cool early wind sweeps through ... Read more >

Half Moon Bay

MEXICO | Wednesday, 27 Jun 2012 | Views [632]

Cold night but sweet view of the ocean in the tent - ditched the campground payment, which helps when one is on a $16 a day budget. Got into Santa Cruz early and wrote a bunch of mother day cards (yes, I actually write a few...) Sweet dinner with ... Read more >

So Kho Phi Phi

THAILAND | Wednesday, 28 Apr 2010 | Views [788]

I actually skipped to describe Kho Lanta, which was an isolated experience in terms of Thai people trying to rip us off. The place was beautiful though, the beach beautiful, but by check out time they tried to charge us for food we never ate, drinks ... Read more >

Now, the south end of Kho Jum is even better............unbelievable!! They shot the movie "the beach" around these islands and it looks every bit like this. There are no paved roads- most transports are done over the water way and - of course-... Read more >

Into fresh air..

THAILAND | Saturday, 10 Apr 2010 | Views [571]

You never know how bad the air in Bangkok is until you get out of there. Kho Jum is one of the least developed islands in Thailand. A good place to recover from the hustle and buzle of the big city. Krabi was the jump off place and now it's just hopping ... Read more >

Out of Bangkok

THAILAND | Saturday, 10 Apr 2010 | Views [515]

Leaving Bangkok in a few hours. Got an overpriced Lonely Planet guide for the southern beaches/ area of Thailand - turned out to be a bad copy -oh, well... I expected to get a lot more harassed by vendors, like it was the case in India - pleased to ... Read more >

Getting a "taste" for this country: Love the language, the food, the people. It seems all clean enough not to get sick (ok, it's only been -not even- 2 weeks since I left home - though it seems MUCH longer, but I am hopeful) Was tempted today ... Read more >

Still in Chiang Mai

THAILAND | Wednesday, 24 Mar 2010 | Views [565]

Don’t think I ever traveled through that many time zones. No jetlag – who would have thought? No jetlag at all……sleeping through the noises of the jungle, the heat, the humidity – the hot flashes…… Good to learn that Thailand seems to be cleaner ... Read more >
