It's been a while... [May. 17th, 2013|05:59 am]
[Current Location |Mexico, Quintana Roo, Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo]

I am still alive just mildly sunburnt.
Quick fire update;

NZ was stunning and all the things everyone say it is and more. Loved it

Peru is a favourite of mine, with some of the major towns such as Nazca still relatively untouched yet thriving on tourism. It was refreshing to see, but with South America being the 'new' SE Asia I think things will change dramatically in the next decade.
Also, billboards in Peru produce water for villages by collecting vapour in the air and filtering it...

Ecuador is rainy at this time of year. The mountains less so. We got lost in the side of a volcano and drunk in a yoga studio.
Quito isn't all that great but admittedly we didn't see much of it (but largely cos it is unsafe to at the moment, so we were restricted to la mirascal which is tourist central!)
The Galápagos Islands are immense. I snorkelled with a sea lion, a penguin and a shit load of turtles all at the same time!! Words don't do this place justice. I hope my sister lulu gets to go before they tighten the restrictions on tourism.

We are currently in Mexico where the food threatens to return me to 17stones!! I swear its the food and not me....
Mexico City is smoggy but has the typical character you'd expect, 6 days there was a bit too long though I think (and with 4 murders inc Malcolm Xs grandson in the next street during that time it was a bit scary... And those are the ones we knew about!)

We are in Playa Del Carmen at the mo where I stupidly got sunburnt on our first beach outing yesterday... Been ill for a couple of days before getting here but now it's Danny's turn which sucks.

We have two weeks here though, and this is the start of the long lazy return home on June 20th.

We have cut our trip short by 3 months after figuring it'd be good to do USA and Canada with more money, nice clothes and less pressure!!

Insomnia is currently making a comeback... And not the song regrettably !

This week I have suffered, sunburn, vodka bruises,  hangover and rejection.

And it's only Tuesday. FUCK YOU WEEK.

Also I have finally devised a gym routine that actually puts me in pain the next day!! Weights don't normally make me ache, so some new lifts/weights have fixed that. Also MORE CARDIO - still have a fat ass. LOL.

the bruise on my leg is mega unsightly, and as big as my hand.
the sunburn i have makes it looks like i've been laid face down in some reddish coloured paint, cos it stps dead on my shoulders, and i have a chin shadow HA!

The guy whose house i really wanted to live in chose a guy over me, cos i don't like football. fucking racist. I hope they guy he chose kicks his cats, bruises his apples and leaves pubes on the kitchen side.
(Ben is actually a lovely guy and I would wish none of those on him at all ever.)

I also went to see Coraline, you know life has gone wrong when you go to the cinema on a sunny bank holiday to watch kids films on your own whilst eating your own weight in chocolate brazils.

Today puts me back at work, after a relatively emotional weekend. I did good not to cry in drunken fashion on Saturday, but mainly due to having FUN. I know he is a bastard, but i miss Stu coming out drinking!! Was awesome to see everyone, and I am rude for not speaking to Clare more (hi Clare, Sorry Clare...!!!)

I cried in my car briefly yesterday after Coraline due to rejection email from Ben (see above)

I soooo want somewhere new to live :(
