Back on the east coast and at our next AirBnb which was also tiny but with spectacular views over the cenote. (Cenotes are natural deep-water wells / sinkholes). There were kayaks for our use, so that was a new experience for me and the water was crystal clear. It was also lovely to use the hammocks and swings. Another smaller […]

Mexico – Becan

In complete contrast to our last huge AirBnb, our next one was tiny; just one room with barely enough space to move, and the only luggage storage space was in a boarded loft area, up a very steep set of steps.  We’d chosen it for its quirkiness though, and it didn’t disappoint.  The room was at the bottom of an […]

Mexico. Chichén-Itzá

After a couple of years of jumping through hoops in order for occasional travel to be possible, things are starting to open up again, so in January I travelled to the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico.  The idea was to see the iconic Chichén-Itzá, but then get away from the tourist and well known spots and explore some of the ‘real’ […]
