Yay! I couldn't find the real one, but happened upon this picture in a Cancun Airport terminal bar - almost as good!
Just a quick one from me this time, just to let know that I've arrived home safely after an overnight British Airways flight from Cancun direct to Gatwick, and from there a train direct to East Croydon and a taxi home again.
It has indeed been a wonderful trip, and it's so good to start counting countries again! Up to 73 now, and the next step is to think about where to go this time next year...!
Whilst as always there's been the not-so-good combined with the good, I've learned over the years that this is part and parcel of the travelling thing. I've been able to mix up the experiences quite a bit, taking in cool highlands, tropical lowlands, verdant jungles, ancient ruins, colonial cities, smoking volcanoes, Caribbean beaches, and oh, a hurricane going by the name of Hurricane Earl also...! Fortunately this time I spent five weeks without having succumbed to any illnesses, bugs or tummy troubles, as well as having avoided the dreaded "Montezuma's Revenge"...
Thank you to Mexico and Guatemala for making me feel so welcome, your people are an honour to your countries, so polite, welcoming and decent people. Thank
My Travel Things
At journey end, not quite so neat and tidy as journey beginning...!
you also Belize, for your beautiful unspoilt beauty, and for helping me to appreciate the warmth and the hospitality of the Mexicans and Guatemalans.
It is at this stage of my journey, namely the end, where I part ways until my next travels - hopefully this time next year! The coming months will most likely see me narrowing down my choices of destination(s) for the next time, whilst the coming hours and days will see me pack, unwind, and put everything through a deep deep clean, including myself: the traditional hot bath and cold beer are awaiting me this evening.
So thank you for reading my blog, and for travelling this journey with me. I have enjoyed writing, and I really appreciate the time people take to read my thoughts, adventures and, sometimes, my ramblings. Until the next time - hasta la vista!
