Home from Mexico

Well, it’s over. Our journey home, unlike the outward voyage, was uneventful and so we’re home from what has been one of our very best travel experiences so far, and that’s saying something. There were a lot of firsts: our first 3-week trip; our first Christmas out of the UK; our first time in Latin America; and so many new food experiences that we lost count. And there was so, so much more. What a wonderfully colourful, vibrant country Mexico is, judging by our experience over the last 3 weeks.

We won’t feel the warmth of the sun for 3 months now, but we have inspiring travel plans for 2019. After that, the real journey begins. “Mature backpackers” like us can’t keep putting it off for ever, so we will soon be swapping our day jobs for the trip of our lifetime. Putting our plans together is almost enough to compensate for the lack of sunshine.

In the meantime, we have the fabulous memories of Puerto Escondido and Oaxaca, both of which we loved, two of our best places visited so far.

  1. Welcome back! In a small way now you know why we miss decent Mexican food in Canterbury. I’m bringing a bag of masa! Plus, you look tan. We are off to Lisbon again feb. 27- inspired by you! Terrie and Charles

  2. Like you, I hope to return to Mexico. It has also been one of my favorite travel destinations. I love the diverse landscapes and cultures, the genuine friendliness of the people, and the reasonable costs of living and independent traveling.
