Jan 4, 2014 - Playa del Carmen
Playa del Carmen Got to the hotel a little before 3:00 and had to wait in the lobby a bit – room wasn’t ready. Then there was some confusion about the room but it all got straightened out and I’m in room 006. I have to check out tomorrow morning then check back in with the group – and probably a roommate or two. We’ll see. After dumping off my stuff I headed to the beach – about four blocks from the hotel. A light rain but the temperate about 75 – 80 so no real issues. I had on shorts and sandals and was quite comfy. After getting my feet...Jump to full entry

10/4 – 10/30 Another late flight left at 10:45AM and we were at the Park Royal Resort in Cozumel, Mexico by 2:00 PM (we were last at the Park Royal in March, 2011 – check our website for additional photos and descriptions).

Apr 13, 2013 - I know you rider, gonna miss me when I'm gone ....
I know you rider, gonna miss me when I'm gone Gonna miss your baby, from rolling in your arms .... Alright back in Mexico, back on the Yucatan Peninsula, back in Quintana Roo, back to the Riviera Maya, back to the beach, back to the caves. I've had an awesome month or so kicking it on the beach, working on the tan, practicing my cave diving and meeting all kinds of interesting and wacky people. All of this was not without it's woes. The biggest issue I had to deal with was that I stressed big time over my relationship with LC. I'll get to...Jump to full entry
Apr 1, 2013 - Dead Cuban heroes
As mentioned in an earlier entry Cuba sure does have a lot of billboards, however unlike all the other countries we've visited, Cuba's are all about the glory of the Revolution with images and slogans of deceased heroes, current heroes (held prisoner in the US) and anti US propaganda. There was very little graffiti anywhere and most of it was pro government and socialism. I suppose the work camp prisons would be a deterrent. Most people have heard of Ernesto 'Che' Guevara, the Argentinian born revolutionary who masterminded a successful...Jump to full entry
Believe it if you need it or leave it if you dare And it's just a box of rain, or a ribbon for your hair Such a long, long time to be gone and a short time to be there.... I’ve got a few hours to kill as the Land Cruiser is at Toyota and they are working on the “list”. The list seems to keep growing. Already on the list were; 1) Fix Cracked Side View Mirror 2) Fix Broken Rear Passenger Window (keeps jumping off the track) 3) Remove Old Alarm System and Install New Alarm System (the one currently installed works when it wants to but has a...Jump to full entry
Feb 6, 2013 - He came dancing across the water....
With his galleons and guns Looking for the new world In that palace in the sun.... Man am I getting lazy in my old age. It again has been about a month since I last checked in here. Amazing how much ground I can cover in a month and how many things can happen, all when I am trying my damnedest to do nothing. Well not completely nothing but not a whole lot of anything either. My trip back from Easter Island to Mexico City was a marathon, and not a fun one either, not like "wow that was fun can't wait to do that again!". It is a 5 hour flight...Jump to full entry
