I’m on my way!

My fantastic 5 months have come to an end. Today is my last night in Mexico and tomorrow morning I will be boarding my plane back to Australia.

Every day of this trip has been special in its own way, but here are my personal highlights of the trip:

1.) Nepal is the overall winner. My hike trough the Annapurna region, with its dramatic mountain views and spectacular natural beauty and diversity, is an experience I will never forget in my life. Hopefully not the last time I was there.

2.) Mexican food!!! No doubt, the best of the trip. The diversity beyond burritos has been a touristic highlight in itself ( especially in Oaxaca).

3.) My time travel to Cuba! What a special little island it is. The 50ies flair, vivid street life and fantastic music will never be forgotten.

4.)Every second spent on a Latin American dance floor deserves to be mentioned here. I had almost forgotten how much, I LOVE to dance salsa!

5.) My amazing family reunion in Colombia!!! We are a lot of people who live all over the world and don’t get to all be at the same place at the same time very often. It was a huge effort from everyone who came, but one that was so worth it. One of the best Christmas I have had in many, many years.

6.) Semuch Champey in Guatemala. I am still stunned by the magical view over those crystal clear rock pools in the middle of the jungle. The trip there was completely out of my way, but every second in the uncomfortable mini bus was worth it.

7.) And last but not least my snorkeling trip in Belize. I don’t dive, so I don’t get to see much underwaterlife very often. The day out at caye Caulker with all the colourful fish, turtles, sharks and sting rays was my best snorkeling experience Ever!!!

I am sad to have reached the end of what has been an amazing chapter but I have also been away for long enough, to appreciate to its full extend, everything that I left behind at home (!). Next Stop is Sydney town.

Sail away in Belize

On Friday I left for my three day sailing adventure from Caye Caulker to Placencia, on a 50 foot boat, the Ragga King.

Clear blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, island hopping, sun, reggae and rum.

The sailing was smooth because the reef protected the coastal waters from the full force of the waves.

We anchored several times to go snorkeling or spearfishing, at night we camped on tiny islands and had amazing dinner, eating mostly the fish we caught during the day. 

This trip has been the perfect closure to my journey.

Yesterday, I spent the entire day on the bus and am now back in Mexico in Tulum, indulging in my beloved Mexican food.
