MEXICO’S MERIDA MESMERISES, AND TEQUILA CONQUERS ALL.

OR, MEXICO STEALS MY HEART.

Arriba, arriba, arrrrrribbbba!

I was in a very weary state when I arrived. I’d said goodbye to my pal in Antigua and stayed a night in a Guatemala City Airport hotel (very good btw the In and Out, magnificent gardens and beautiful clean simple modern rooms, free shuttle two minutes from airport.) Then I flew to Cancun and stayed in another airport hotel for my initiation night in Mexico prepping for the following days flight to Merida. (Comfort Inn which also was great and I snagged the empty roof terrace as my own!).

Tickets Part 3: Boats and Planes.

or dangerous ferriES AND DIFFICULT AIRLINES

Although I always bang on about doing everything spontaneously and ‘on the hoof’ sometimes it has led to my down fall, or at least changing plans in a heart stopping, teeth gritting last minute. It’s bad for stress but also what to expect from time to time when travelling alone. You’ll get used to it for even though I’m warning you my old birds, You probably won’t listen, have forgotten or have ignored my advice.

OR, FUCKING KARAOKE IN THE PHILIPPINES DRIVING AN OLD BIRD TO INSANITY.

OR, FUCKING CRATER LAKE HAS BEEN VAPORISED SINCE I WAS THERE DUE TO VOLCANO ERUPTING!

Alert: Like I keep saying to you old birds, live for the moment and get OUT there. Again it would seem I’ve been lucky about choosing my mega travel spree over the three years before 2020 and all it’s shit because in January last year Taal unleashed it’s fury again.It’s volcanic crater lake is gone now. Everything I wrote in my journal now has to be updated. There is a BBC video link below of the lightening and eruption.

WHALE SHARKS AND WATERFALLS IN OSLOB, PHILIPPINES.

Aquamarine almost glowing water which I gratefully dived into. The crashing water became deafening as I swam closer and the frigid water was so exhilarating that I gasped. In these falls and the deep pool, I felt truly cleansed and also the sensation was almost like a baptising if you will, a renewal of positive life force. If this sounds too hippy-dippy try it for yourself some time. As I meditated on this I felt completely rejuvenated.
