Travel Blogs from Tulum
If you ever wondered where that cliche picture of paradise Microsoft has for your PCs wallpaper (which I definitely have , instead of writing English papers), I can say I've found it. (maybe) Tulum was absolutely breath taking, it's been a life dream of mine to visit Mayan ruins , and Tulum surely fulfilled them. The ruins are built right off the …
... doubt that it is one of the most beautiful beaches we've seen in the past seven months of travel. With white sand and incredibly turquoise water, the whole place looks almost fake. We managed to avoid a sunburn and we returned to our hotel, happy that we stopped here a couple of days. In the end it was more than just a stop to break the journey, thanks also to a nice and spicy Mexican dinner with tacos, quesadillas and some Sol with a slice of lemon.
Today we're back ...
... out the big guns and
use sun tan oil, and I hardly even burned! In the evening we went to a local
taqueria and ate enough tacos to feed a family for about 10 USD.
The next day we went up early to visit the ruins at Chichen
Itza, our third “new wonder of the world” to visit during the trip (the first
being Machu Picchu and Cristo Redentor). We took a three-hour bus ride inland
and got there at noon. The place ...
... enough to have Chris' underwater camera with us so have captured our experience (which I can't upload sorry as we can't transfer them to the iPad).
The beach front cafes were busy so we headed just back from the beach to a sweet and colourful cafe recommended to Nikki & Tyler by the people they are staying with. As well as a few cervezas, we ordered a mixture of burritos and tacos which were beautiful, the best we've eaten on ...
... Now Tulum...the land of understated elegance, simplicity in its finest forms, decadence with class and a vibe that takes Byron Bay and raises it!

If you ever wondered where that cliche picture of paradise Microsoft has for your PCs wallpaper (which I definitely have , instead of writing English papers), I can say I've found it. (maybe) Tulum was absolutely breath taking, it's been a life dream of mine to visit Mayan ruins , and Tulum surely fulfilled them. The ruins are built right off the coast, and if you climb some ropes and ignore the "do not cross signs" (which I used my, me no hablo espanol excuse, although everyone; I'm sure knows what a big red "X" ) you can capture the blue water and a scenery which is truly breath taking. The photos I took could easily be found on a 16 year olds tumblr which a clever caption in white font along the lines of "bring me to paradise" or the lyrics of a Coldplay song. Today I had fun being "artsy" or basically a basic teenage girl with a camera . But I can say the weird squats and angles I was bending just to get that "perfect insta" pic were totally worth it.
I'm going to take a nap now in the back of this shady taxi.
