Back - and ready to roll

Us at the Mayan Ruins at Coba

CB Climbing down the Great Mayan Pyramid at Coba

The thing I love about going away is the fact that I always want to come home. I love traveling and experiencing new things, but there's nothing like coming home and sleeping in your own bed.

Mexico was great, it was warm, the water was blue, the hotel was amazing, we met amazing people on our trip who we will no doubt keep in touch with, and the people of Cozumel were so nice and genuine.

Our first full day in Mexico we took the 9 hour trip to Coba on the mainland of Playa del Carmen. We sailed on the ferry from Cozumel to Playa del Carmen, and then took an hour and a half bus ride to Coba; one of the Mayan ruins sites on the island, and the only site where you can actively climb the ruins, which was just amazing. After touring the ruins with a Mayan tour guide we stopped off at a small little open air restaurant and ate the best food - CB had chicken, pork, beef, and I had rice, beans and fish. It was soooo good.

We relaxed by the pool, snorkeled in the ocean, ate too much, drank too much, staved off a bit of traveler's diarrhea (I know too much information sorry, and it was bad, must bring antibiotics on next trip to Mexico!)

Glad to back, glad to be cooking and baking, I made risotto and biscotti when I got home yesterday - posts coming tomorrow.
