Tour de Mexico

Oct 4, 2013 - Cozumel, Mexico

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). Weather in Cozumel was warm and humid and, during the four weeks we were there, we only had a couple days of rain. Our vacation in Cozumel can be summed up in one word: relaxing. Ken spent the mornings reading while Joan painted. Ken finished 12 books and Joan completed 13 paintings (you can check out the paintings on...

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...

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...

Feb 18, 2013 - And it's just a box of rain, I don't know who put it there....

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...

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...

Jan 24, 2013 - Costa Maya, Mexico ... our fourth Port of Call

Our final port call in the Caribbean is Costa Maya, Mexico. This modern "resort" was established primarily for the cruise industry. It is a short stop for most cruise lines and basically is a small grouping of stores, bars and restaurants to service the cruise ships ... a stop-off between the U.S. and Cancun and other Central American ports of call of the cruise industry. You get the feeling there is cruise ship company money that has built this port. There is no local community to visit ... only the port and two small communities...

Jan 21, 2013 - Cozumel Mexico ... our first Port of Call

Our first Port of Call was on the largest island in Mexico, Cozumel. It has become a cruise destination for many ... three ships in port today.

Our instructor is a noted chef in the area ... who did a wonderful job along with lots of humor and good cooking tips. Appetizer, main course and dessert were made by each of the 20-25 people in the class. It was a hoot ... and a good learning experience for cooks...

Jan 9, 2013 - Puerto Morelos, Mexico Jan 6 - 9, 2013

It’s hard to keep track of the days, never mind the time. We haven’t worn a watch since we left Canada, and man it’s hard to keep track of time. Jan 7th we met up with the Osborne’s and their friends, in Playa del Carmen. We had lunch there with them at the Tequila Barrel, before going our own way. We did a small shopping splurge at Walmart before heading for the bus station. We hopped on the local ADO bus line, which dropped us off at the highway, just a couple of miles from the coastal town of Puerto Morelos. It cost us 26 pesos each...

Jan 5, 2013 - Puerto Morelos, Mexico Jan 1 - 5, 2013

Life in Puerto Morelos is simple, and slow. We wake up to the chirping of the birds outside our window, and sometimes the squawking of the 2 parrots who live here at Villas Claritas. They put on a continental breakfast here, and we saunter down to have coffee and treats. After breakfast we usually walk to town and back, sometimes on different routes, just to keep up the exercise. A swim in the pool, snorkel in the ocean (for Turk), read a book…..it’s all good. We have met up with Ruth & Denis quite a few times for some refreshments. Turkey...
