    Vamos a Mexico y Belize

    We are focused on our honeymoon trip now. We know that we are landing in Cancun, then getting the heck out of dodge (el dodge?) as soon as we can, and heading to the Riviera Maya. We might go to Tulum first, and then head south south south after that until we hit Punta Gorda. […]

    The Fall Foray

    I’m going to the coast to join the Oregon Mycological Society on their Fall Foray. I have a little trepidation because it is in this bunk bed cabin church camp place. I am a newlywed and I’d really like to sleep next to my husband, but apparently the rooms are split up by sex. Ugh. […]

    Mexico City with Rolando

    We´ve had lots of rain the last couple of days, but today we went to see these crazy Aztec (originally the toltecs) pyramids and i got some sun finally! I refuse to come back all pale!! The toltec civilization lived maybe 2000 years ago. We´re in mexico city still and it’s so much less dirty […]

    Packing Tips : ~If you have a top-loading backpack make little lightweight bags out of old sheets/pillowcases to separate clothes into categories- it saves so much time when you are hunting for a certain item.

    Before the Trip

    April 07, 2005 long, long short day

    My day was so-so today. I’m not really sure how days should be when you’re getting ready to move to another country. I felt kind of numb today. I’m pissed that I’ve been “dieting” and exercising, and every time I lose a pound, I gain it back. I’d […]

    Just Thinking About Traveling

    January 11, 2005 thanks for last night…

    So, last night I was on a writing roll. I entered a bunch of changes in my chapters 3-5 and have some more to go, but it felt good to be so focused on it. I hate that I’ve been doing anything but write! Interesting too because as […]
