So it's come down to this. We have been on the road almost exactly a year, and with 17 countries behind us, we're looking at a three-day weekend in Mexico.

Antigua became home for a while, which explains our silence over the last couple months - who writes a Travel Pod about home? Since we last wrote to tell you about our newfound domesticity, we made some great local friends, hosted family and friends from the States, and created a place in our hearts for Guatemala and its people. Our departure from Antigua, for so long a concept, a distant point on the horizon, sneaked up on us and suddenly we were traveling again. In San Cristobal we lounged in the shady zocalo, wandered through the quiet colonial calles and learned a bit about the fascinating history of the Chiapas region. In Palenque we hung out in the jungle and explored sacred Mayan ruins. In Tulum we partied on the beach and dived in a freshwater cenote. And just like that, here we sit, the warm sea breeze blowing off the lagoon right in front of our room on the Northern tip of Isla Mujeres.

We'll spend the weekend swinging in hammocks, reading, swimming, and occasionally murmuring our current mantra, "I can't believe we're going home on Monday." But we are, and sad as we may be that it's over, there's no better place than home to start planning for our next adventure! Hasta luego...
