Checking out the Coba Mayan ruins in Mexico, Tulum

View World Trip 2012 - Actual on dariusz's travel map.

The Mayan culture is a fascinating one. They left us with many ruins of what must have been an amazing empire with some impressive cities. The Coba ruins conjure up images of indiana jones and lost cities as the site is not entirely excavated and is set in an uncleared jungle. However the main reason to visit these ruins is this:

Yes, that is me breathing that hard, I really need to get in shape before the mountains of Ecuador and Nepal!

The video was neat. You guys should do a post on what you packed. I am very curious about what you take on such a long vacation.

Laura, we just have two large backpacks and two day packs. So it's really just a matter of packing as versatile as possible. Layering is key. Things that can be used in both warm and coolish climates are best. There are laundry places everywhere so not packing too many of the same thing helps.

I'll see if I can post some pictures later :)
