So since I’ve last posted I’ve been pretty busy with not only keeping up with school but galavanting around Mexico! To start off you’re probably wondering why I just took off to Mexico, but it just so happens my family has a snug little condo right smack dab on the Yucatán. One of my older brothers decided the family needed to keep off their shoes and have a good time. And man, what a week that was.
We did the usual touristy things, and I literally ate tacos everyday. Because when in Mexico do as the locals right!?
I think the highlight of the trip for me was the day trip to Cobá. Cobá is the sight of some of the oldest Mayan ruins. And what a sight were they to see. The best part of the trip was the fact that we got to ride these, pieced together bikes. And I mean like dumpster dived, pick a part bikes through the jungle to the temple.
Once we made our way to the temple we had the chance to climb the 180 foot steep facade and summit just as the villagers did everyday. And as an avid climber and active outdoorsman I look at this thing and scoffed. But let me tell you, it wasn’t an easy task. By the time I had made it to the top I felt my lungs give out.
But man was it a sight to see, miles and miles of unclaimed jungle just being all it is! The sight took my breathe away…or what was left of it at least. Once at the top I realized why these people did what they did and I couldn’t have felt more connected to those times.
All in all the trip had many adventures, some that stay in Mexico. But I wouldn’t have traded my time there for anything!
As always, Thank you for reading!!
