Silence and Lakeside Camping – Tziscao, Chiapas, Mexico

So for the last 2 days we have been higher above sea level than we have been for a long time. The difference is amazing; we are now in forest as opposed to jungle, the temperature at night is a relaxing 15C and daytime up to around 25C. The community run lakes at Tziscao, Chiapas are extremely quiet and beautiful. … Read More

From Merida, Yucatan to Frontera Corozal, Chiapas

It’s 7.30am, the sun is just climbing above the trees and its a refreshing 19 degrees (centigrade).

The sudden driving/travelling after so long stationary was a bit of a shock but … Read More

After San Fran we drove down the coast before heading east to Death Valley.  We hung out … Read More

Icefields Parkway, Waterfalls, Glaciers and Mountains

That’s a big title – one that I probably wont adequately fulfil – but there is a road from a place called Jasper to a place called Banff called the Highway 93 – luckily some bright spark re-named it the Icefields Parkway and that is much easier to write about. So Jasper and Banff are Canadian national parks – Banff … Read More
