The Mayans – Palenque Chapter

On the last day of our Chiapas adventure, we visited the Mayan ruins of Palenque.  Our hotel was a short car ride to the entrance of the ruins. Our driver, Abel, dropped us off and waited on the parking lot until we were done. A prime example of a Mayan sanctuary of the classical period,…

The Mayans – Tonina Chapter

There are dozens of Mayan archaeological sites in Chiapas, some are still undiscovered and some have just been recently opened to the public (and tourists do not visit them much). One of these hidden gems is the Mayan city of Tonina, about 13 Km east of the town of Ocosingo. The site includes several temple-pyramids…

The Temple Of Apollo

After realizing we have seen everything in Paros, we explored the possibility to visit other islands for the day. Our first option was to go to Mykonos, but unfortunately, today was the only day of the week with no day tours there. Instead, we decided to go to Naxos, which is the other big island next…

Earthquake

This post is going to be short, basically the last day in Kathmandu before we fly into Tibet. We will come back to Nepal after to continue our adventure.

That Weird Flag!

2:00 am and Eitan woke up to an earthquake, he made a huge mistake and immediately woke up Sarah; she is so afraid of earthquakes she started to panic given we were in Nepal and the buildings here are not built with the same standards as the U.S; You could here tourists running down the…

Gimme More Rupees!

Today we returned to our lake view restaurant for breakfast; Eitan ordered pancakes and we have realized that in India their concept of a pancake is a crepe. Sarah got oatmeal, our first time seeing oatmeal on a menu in 3 months!  Sarah unfortunately was feeling under the weather but she picked the perfect day…

Tombs and Bombs

Second day in Delhi and still alive! that is good news. We are getting a little more confident here but still decided to get another driver for the day. Our first stop was Akshardham Complex,  a Hindu mandir (temple), and a spiritual-cultural campus in Delhi. Surrounding the temple they built some theme park looking attractions…

The Climb To Sigiriya

We had some traditional homemade breakfast before heading out. I cant remember the name but it was basically some black grains compressed into a tube with coconut milk on top. it was really tasty and apparently super difficult to make, so we are lucky Lanka (Guesthouse host) offered to make it for us. Manoj (our…

Cruising To Bagan

We woke up early to take a boat that will take us to Bagan, the city of temples. The hotel staff had our breakfast to go (we were to early for the breakfast time) and a taxi ready to take us to the pier. We boarded the “luxury”cruise that will take us down the Ayeyarwady…

Mandalay Colors

In order to get to our Myanmar flight we needed to leave Bangkok during rush hour, the taxis would have been very expensive so the only budget option was to take the sky train to a station close to the airport and then a taxi from there. But once we were about to leave, we…

Borobudur And The Strawberry Spider Sandwich

We woke up at 3:00 am (again) to go to the amazing Borobudur temple to see the sunrise. Our friends Lauren and Heather were at the same tour as well. In order to see the sunrise you have to pay another rip-off ticket of around $35 that includes breakfast (coffee and a miniature fried bread…
