    Travel: La Perla

    La Perla is an authentic Mexican restaurant in Playa del Carmen. Wonderful friends of ours were staying in Cancun during our time in Akumal and we decided to meet halfway in Playa for dinner. This place is on the north end of 5th street – the older end. We took the Colectivo from Akumal and it took us about 50 minutes from door to door. Bugs at La Perla Yes – you read that correctly, bugs. Bryce tacos with crickets and larva – not for…

    Travel: West Coast Trail Prep

    West Coast Trail Prep – say what? Yes, we’re hiking the west coast trail starting tomorrow. We flew to Victoria with all our gear and are taking the trail bus to Gordon River. Then it’s time for the real work – hiking the 75 KM from south to north. I’m excited! And, there is no way any of this would have been possible without the support of our family. From Christmas gifts to Easter socks, we’re well prepared and know we’re well loved. Links First,…

Cenote Ik Kil After we visited Chichen Itza we stopped here – it was the perfect way to cool off and have some fun. This is what the cenote – meaning sink hole – looks like from above. We’re on the ground level and the water is a huge hole in the ground. It’s all natural…

    Travel: Chichen Itza

    Oh my goodness, this place – Chichen Itza – is awesome. One of the 7 wonders of the world, it’s most definitely worth the visit. Chichen Itza First, get a guide and opt for the shorter version. It was 35 degrees out with minimal shade, so the 2 hour tour was more than enough. All in all we spent about 2.5-3 hours at the site. Second, learn cool stuff. These steps are narrow forcing humans to walk up sideways so as to not face the…
