Just before discovering Paradise on Earth we went to swim in a nearby cenote, the Gran Cenote in Tulum. It was the first time we tested out our newest toy: GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition – much more on that very soon.
We took a colectivo from Playa del Carmen – they are local mini busses you share with other people. It’s very inexpensive to use them to travel around in Mexico – but you have to wait for it to be full, so it can be very unpredictable.
However, we actually waited in line with a bunch of other people for a colectivo. It filled up immediately and we were on our way to Tulum. (more…)
We plan on travelling along the Caribbean Sea for a long time. So this is probably not the last time we’ll claim to have found Paradise on Earth. But can you tire of seeing photos of paradise-like beaches? I think not! So here we go…
This week we went to Tulum with our friends Mirje and Antti from Anywhereism. We started off by taking a colectivo (local inexpensive mini bus) to Tulum center and then went straight for a taxi to the Gran Cenote (more on that in another post!).
After that great experience we got another taxi and told him to take us to the beach. “Take us to the most beautiful beach in Tulum!” we demanded. The taxi driver didn’t hesitate: “we’re going to Playa Paraiso” (more…)
So I’m not sure what the status with my Project 365 is. I know there have been days where I have not taken a photo. I hope to do a status soon.
But today I took a lot of photos. We were in Tulum to see their famous ruins and also swam in the Gran Cenote. Amazing day! I have a million photos to edit and I can’t wait to show you how amazing Tulum was!
But first – here’s a photo from today: a beautiful iguana enjoying the sun on the ruins in Tulum. We saw lots of iguanas today, and many of them were very big – like this one. We also saw lots of them fight!
Isn’t it beautiful? :)
We’re not huge planners and we have also written about why you don’t need a master plan when you travel. And those are still our thoughts on travel planning.
However, it is important to somehow plan a greater frame of what you want to experience. If you just travel around without a plan about what we want to see and experience, you’ll end up not doing what you really wanted.
So I’ve been doing a lot of planning these past days. I just really want to make sure that we cover a lot of what to see here in the area before moving on. To visualize it I’ve created the map above in Google Maps with a lot of pins on it. (more…)
I received more photos from when I lived in Zimbabwe and I wanted to share them with our readers. So now you get a part 3 and 4, and then there wouldn’t be any more photos from the time I lived in Zimbabwe with my parents. The next time I post photos from Zimbabwe it will be when I travel there with Celia. It will happen someday. :D
The photos are from my parents’ friend, Ally, who was so nice to share her photos from Zimbabwe. My father scanned them and emailed them to me. Thanks Dad and Ally. :D
I hope you enjoy the photos. I did. :D
