Each journey begins with a single step... Two kiwis escaping from the island to explore strange new worlds and boldly go where thousands have gone before... . .

Morelia

MEXICO | Saturday, 20 Dec 2008 | Views [858]

When we arrived in Morelia (the capital of Michoacan state) after quite a cold journey overnight by bus. We arrived at 3am and slept on the bus station floor until the world arose. We caught a 'collectivo' or shared taxi to town. It was a combi and we ... Read more >

Colima

MEXICO | Thursday, 18 Dec 2008 | Views [674]

We caught a bus all the way to Colima as the next town/city of Manzanillo didn't look all that appealing and it was cheaper to go all the way to Colima. We arrived there in the evening, it was dark and there was all this black stuff in the air. We realised ... Read more >


Melanque

MEXICO | Thursday, 18 Dec 2008 | Views [1771]

The bus took us from Puerto Vallarta to the Botannical Gardens south of the city. It is just in it's infancy and not really worth the visit (in hindsight), in a few years it might look good. We hitched a lift from there to El Tuito where we had a delightful ... Read more >

Puerto Vallarta

MEXICO | Saturday, 13 Dec 2008 | Views [975] | Comments [2]

We were prepared not to like Puerto Vallarta as is a busy city and on the outskirts it didn´t look good. But when we got into the centre it was just great. We managed to hitch a ride all the way from Las Varas where Tito and Miguel from Las Tortugas ... Read more >

Playa Las Tortugas - Turtle Beach

MEXICO | Saturday, 6 Dec 2008 | Views [2011] | Comments [2]

We had great luck and got a ride in about 5 minutes flat from Tequila. We were heading to Tepic but the ride was heading to Puerto Vallarta so we decided to go with him to Las Varas and head on to the turtles from there. We ended up staying the night ... Read more >


Tequila!

MEXICO | Thursday, 4 Dec 2008 | Views [950]

We caught the bus to Tequila, it cost 55 pesos each and took us 1 1/2 hours to get there, even though it is only 50 km from Guadalajara! On the road we pass though acres and acres of fields of blue agave cactus. This cactus is the sole ingredient ... Read more >

Guadalajara - updated 16/12

MEXICO | Tuesday, 2 Dec 2008 | Views [632] | Comments [1]

In La Paz we discovered the cost of the ferry to Mazatlan (18 hours) had increased from 835p to 1190p. To fly to Guadalajara cost 1200p so guess which one we chose! We flew over here yesterday, it took 1 1/2 hours and caught 2 buses from the airport ... Read more >

saga of the teeth - updated by Carol

MEXICO | Tuesday, 25 Nov 2008 | Views [623] | Comments [3]

I wrote this in considerable discomfort/pain last week so today I will rewrite it so it makes more sense. I started to get a pain in my face, up the left side of my nose. It was so bad that some guys from the Gathering took me by car into the emergency ... Read more >

MEXICO | Thursday, 20 Nov 2008 | Views [889]

After Agua Caliente we camped in a campgrounds at Los Barrilos, it was really great there, 140p a night for us both and lovely showers and a swimming pool on the beach and only one other person in the camping area. We ate each night at a small local ... Read more >
