Very soon the second daughter will join our family. New year, new baby and… we are starting to plan our new next trip. Ladies and gentleman, in 2011 we will travel to…
Between The Oceans 2011-2012 (Central America)
How early before the trip one should start preparations? Last minute was always my thing but maybe this time we can start a bit earlier? Especially that Mila is still nicely sleeping during days.
Preparations can be exhausting or can make you happy. Or both. Only six more days we have to finish everything here in Berlin and take a place in the plane to Cancun, Mexico. Aaaaaa!
People usually don’t ask us this question directly but in last days before leaving Hanna is forcing us to find some good answers. We try to talk with her about the trip, explaining that we are leaving, that we will be far away, that there will be different animals and fruits. And because she is Read More
You may think that losing a teddy bear in last hours of packing, just before a 6-month-long trip, is not a problem. Yes, it is. Hanna’s teddy bear was with us since 2 years, was sleeping with Hanna every night, went with us on the trip around the Black Sea, was going to the doctor, Read More
We are sending kisses to the whole world from Cancun in Mexico! Still sleepy, tired and not very conscious that we are really here.
At first hurricane and then it can be only stronger? That was kind of our beginning in Mexico.
To become a happy owner of the car in Mexico you must go through four steps: finding a proper car, checking if it is really a proper car, getting money to buy this car, registering the car. And each of those steps can be a fight – especially if you are a foreigner.
And what to eat in Pozoleria? Pozole, of course.
Seems like heaven, from those folders of travel agencies. But on the pictures you don’t see one important issues: mosquitoes!!
San Angel, 800-people Maya community. One of the places where organisation Kanche is supporting the activities of indigenous people.
What to do in the Maya village on the Day of the Dead? You follow your daughter and get invited for a traditional dinner!
Probably the most touristic Maya ruins around but still: just imagine how happy those Maya must have been to wake up and have such a view in the morning!?
So how many degrees do you have in Europe right now? Don’t you also feel like jumping to the blue eye of underwater cenote?
I’m seriously wondering how did Chichen Itza make it to be between new seven wonders of the world. More tourists and souvenirs than wonders!
Going more east, we checked the capital of the peninsula, another town and a small fishermen village. What to say, between chickens, turkeys and dogs – we all had the most of fun.
Already arriving to the camping place, close to the Palenque ruins, gave a very tropical feeling: dipped in the jungle small road to small wooden cabanas, bustling with “King of the jungle” song, wet and hot morning just waiting for exploring the ruins.
And each of the villages has its own clothing, language, beliefs and customs. And maybe even 1/3 of the people don’t speak Spanish! And from those jungles came the rebel movement of Zapatista, which is fighting for a democratic change of indigenous rights. Chiapas: an amazing state of Mexico.
Cool, because situated between hills in a small valley. Cool, because very walkable and likable with all the small cafes (first time we felt Berlin’s atmoshpere). Cool, because of all the Maya’s culture in the city.
Of course not visiting all the places we planned, and of course much later than we planned – we are leaving Mexico. Surprisingly, without any problem on the Guatemalan border!!
