Welcome to my blog. My main website with its bloggy main page is probably is a bit more up to date as I spend more time working on that one. I run a fairly sizable website called Restless Adventureralready and this is just something of a portal page to it. If you are adventure-minded then you are guaranteed to find something of interest in the links to the left. If you have any questions feel free to contact me. I've helped a lot of people with their adventure plans and enjoy doing it. I've certainly received my share of advice.

Merida



I've heard good things about Merida. Certainly my first day was a good one. I arrived in the early afternoon and decided to walk to the hostel. When I reached the main square the meaning of Merida en domingo became evident. There was lots of music and dancing and vendors. I got distracted and wandered around for a bit.

The city has always been the most important in the Yucatan but doesn't really have much architecture to show for it. At least the centro is the most bland I've seen in a while. I probably won't take many photos of the city although it really does seem nice.

I eventually made it to Hostal Nomadas which is really nice. It's close to everything a traveler needs and it's very helpful in what it provides people on check in: neighborhood map with laundromat, groceries, bus stops, museums, etc, and hammock buying advice, a bus timetable to all sorts of places, and a page of sights around Merida to visit with costs, time, and bus info all listed. That makes things really easy.

That night I went out on a quest to try a bunch of local food and drinks in the plaza - and succeeded.
