They landed on a overcast, cold day, wearing shorts, sunglasses, insect repellant and bad bed hair. Passage through UK Immigration was blistering fast, not even a question about going through Mexico. Mabel wished she had been brave enough to bring in lots and lots of booze and stuff, but was too honest to try. The sight of Darren waiting there to pick us up was great and the first cup of real tea was sublime. It was good to be home, turn around the washing and book the flights to Katmandu.... ooops perhaps Mac had better run that past Mable first. Mac x x x
A BIG shout out to Mum, Ian from STA and the Wr travel office for their combined attempts to get us home, cheers guys, without your help we would still be stuck on a beautiful desert island...... hmmmmm hang on!, lets re think that one!!
The Lukes , well it wouldnt be complete without him !!
Worst= Peten, , Flores...the inspiration behind Faulty Towers without the sea view.
Bets Journey = Horse truccs, rustic and rural....done nuffin like it before
Worst = road from Antigua to Flores, vomit inducing and Bri did
Best Meal= scumptious fish in Caye Caulker, cooked and presented like an expensive retaurant, but much cheaper
Worst = Flores, falafels were like an overcooked flat fried disc on a bed of coleslaw : o ( and no humus either
Best Weather= Belieze for consitent sunshine. And then Guatamala for fab rain!
Worst = Cancun was toooooooo hot for Brits ( yanks love it)
Highlight moments ...
Carol = eating toasted marshmellows from a lava flow
Bri =Climbing to the top of the temple at Tekal.
Carol = "reality" texts and drama calls from UK.
Bri = HSBC blocking the bank card again!
So this is it, the last blog. A big hey ho to all the new friends we met thoughout the trip, we wish u all the best and hope to meet again one day. To HSBC, you were fu~*ing rubbish. To Carol, my soul mate, without whom this adventure would never have happened. Our tour leaders, well the good ones anyway. The poeple who read our blog, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed writing it. To God and all the fluffy animals and little children. STA, cheers Ian and Dave. Darren for looking after the house, fish, cars, bike and picking us up. As a great person once said , "climb every mountain......................................................................." Mac :-)
Blimey, wot a trip, met so many amazing people from 19 to 83 and everything in between, saw so many awsome sights, ate great new foods, drank good stuff, experianced extreme highs and lived through a few lows.
Now back at work ( which is cool) and the hardest thing I have had to deal so far is that question " what was your highlight" aghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Mable :-)
