Mexico 2016


Mexico 2016 baby!

Efter Galapagos fløj jeg direkte mod Cancun i Mexico.

Turen tog dog en uheldig drejning, da jeg mistede min pung i lufthavnen i Bogata, hvor jeg havde en mellemlanding. Derfor missede jeg mit fly, da jeg stod uden en krone på mig. Heldigvis fandt jeg den igen, og fik en ny gratis billet af Avianca (stor kærlighed til dem), så jeg kunne komme med en flyver 8 timer senere.

Jeg havde dog en lang kamp med banken, eftersom de ikke ville åbne mine spærrede kort igen, men det lykkedes da også til sidst. Heldigvis, jeg var jo ved at dø at sult!

Jeg ankom sen aften til Cancun i Mexico, og fandt en shuttle som kunne tage mig til byen.

Cancun og dykning af undervandsmuséet

Jeg brugte en del tid i Cancun på stranden. De havde en lækker strand oppe i hotelområdet, med azurblåt hav og hvid sand. Men hold da op det var varmt. Derfor havde jeg da også lige en enkelt dag, jeg valgt at bruge under havets overfalde, nemlig for at dykke undervandsmuséet i Cancun.

Dykning her, er lavet for at turister ikke ødelægger korallerne andetsteds. Det er jo faktisk ret smart. Undervandsmuséet består af en masse statuer, samt biler og andre kunstværker under overfalden. Dykning er super nemt, da maks dybden er på 10 meter, sigtbarheden er 25m+ og der ikke var det der lignede strøm i vandet. Jeg dykkede med Scuba Cancun, som klart kan anbefales.

Jeg mødte en del folk på mit hostel, 2 af dem Lucy og George, brugte jeg en del tid med. Vi tog blandt andet bussen til Playa del Carmen, og brugte en hyggelig dag der. Det ligger en time fra Cancun i bus. Busserne kører hvert kvarter og indtil midnat, så hvis du engang besøger Cancun, så skal du også til Playa del Carmen.

Chichen Itza turen

Når man er i Cancun, så skulle man da være et skarn, hvis ikke man tog en tur til Chichen Itza. Chichen Itza er på listen over verdens 7 nye vidundere, og er derfor et besøg værd.

Jeg bookede en tur derhen med George og Lucy, samt nogle flere fra vores hostel med en stor bus. Turen fra Cancun til Chichen Itza tager omkring 2 timer, så det er overkommeligt. På vejen fik vi også et lokalt måltid, blev velsignet af en shaman, og så en masse af Mexico. Vi ankom til Chichen Itza, som er en kæmpe stor turistmagnet. Heldigvis har de en masse andre ting man kan se, som hvor Maya’erne boede, hvor de spillede Mesoamerikansk Boldspil, som for øvrigt også blev brugt til rivaliserende klaner. De har store templer, og området omkring er faktisk ret stort. Derfor var det også muligt at få et billede af Chichen Itza uden folk, som i kan se i galleriet.

Efter at have bagt derinde, der var 43 grader, i et par timer, tog vi så turen tilbage mod Cancun. På vej tilbage stoppede vi i Valladolid lidt tid, for at se lidt af byen. Alt i alt en ret god dag.

Playa del Carmen og Tulum ruinerne

Den sidste tid i Mexico, gik med lidt flere strandture til Playa del Carmen. Hvis man tager bussen en time længere sydpå, kommer man til Tulum ruinerne. Tulum er ligeledes en gammel Maya by, hvor en del af templerne er velbevarede. Derudover er det en af de eneste byer, hvis ikke den eneste, Maya by der ligger ud til vandet. Det vil sige, at når man er på besøg, kan man sagtens lige tage en svømmetur ude i det azurblå hav. Så husk badetøj, hvis du nogensinde planlægger at tage herhen.

De sidste par dage, inden turen gik mod Miami, gik tiden mest bare med at slappe af ved poolen, få en øl eller tre med folkene fra mit hostel, tage på G&T bar og hygge mig.

One of my favorites from Botswana in January. Zebras just running around in the sunset.

One year ago - since I was exploring Russia, Mongolia and China, while travelling on the Trans Mongolian Railway. Something everybody should try once in their life! 🛤🚃
Here in Moscow on the Red Square gazing upon the Saint Basil’s Cathedral.

Throwback to about a year ago, when I did the Trans Mongolian Railway and spend a week in Mongolia. Went to live in a Ger Camp in the Gobi Desert, and had to try the skill of archery, braid  my hair due to old customs and try on some traditionel clothes.

The Penguins are doing a good job carrying us around the slopes in Mayrhofen.

Another shot from Africa. Another one of the Big Five we saw. Perhaps january is in the rainy season, but it is also the season where there are baby animals everywhere. Look at that cute little Rhino with his little horn! 😍🦏

Less than a day year old Zebra! Stripes are still messed up, because it was so wet. After a bit it started walking away with mom. Impressive that a 1 day old baby, can walk after one day and even with 4 legs. 🦓

When in the middle of nowhere, and there is not light pollution whatsoever, you just need to enjoy the beautiful nightsky!

Look at the magnificient giant!
Not sure if he lost and eye, and if he actually is as old as he look, but I am sure that the beauty would have some interesting stories to tell, if we gave him a voice. 🐘

Another one from Samoa. I’ve seen the Milky way a lot of times now, but never had the proper gear to take pictures of it. Now I finally have, and I got this beauty on Lalomanu Beach, while sitting all alone under a coconut tree and listening to the waves.

Being back at Samoa the last two weeks, really was a dream coming true. And this time I stayed at Upolo at Lalomanu. Only 15 minutes drive from To Sua Ocean Trench. Easy to take pictures when the sun is high and the tide is low. 😍

Another shot from China, where we went to see the amazing Terracotta warriors. Used to be 8000 statues, carved out from real life warriors to protect the tomb of the first emperor of China. Really facinating stuff!

“What a cute little monkey” is that @simonroenborg said when we found some wild monkeys in Zhangjiajie National Park while hiking around. And he was right, specially when we found this Mommy with her little baby.

Another shor from China. This time from Zhangjiajie National Park, where you can find the famous Halleluja-Mountains from the movie Avatar. Also known as the Avatar Mountains. Felt like real magic just standing watching them.

On our trip, we took a trip from Beijing to Huangyaguan Great Wall. A part of the wall not really known by tourists yet. So I was able to get this amazing picture in this amazing area. 5/7 of the 7 World Wonders have been visited! Tick.

Home from an absolutely incredible vacation in China, Mongolia and Russia. One of the highlights, and another tick on my bucketlist, was to experience Pandas. I love these big fluffy bears. Visited the Panda Breeding Center, the place that made the Pandas breed again and helped the Pandas survive!
