Mexico was not on our map at all before speaking to the travel agent at Jysk Rejsebureau. We don’t know why but we did not really consider it and probably also found it too dangerous travelling with relatively small kids. But speaking to him we became quite intrigued and since he had just been there with his two year old daughter and did not come across as a reckless person obviously there were more to Mexico than we thought. The Yucatan peninsula is actually quite safe, and as long as you stay away from the most touristy places we should be able to experience a unique combination of culture, beautiful nature and delicious food. Maya ruins are of course also at the top of our list and we might actually make it as far south as Belize. We became so fascinated with all the possibilities that we are going to spend almost a full month in Mexico.

i just saw your conference on Getting Real Value out of your Planning Efforts with Story Mapping which Taught me a lot and changed the my perspective about Agile. I live in Mexico city and i would like to tell you that you should totally go to “Bolonchoojol, Chaczinicche y Chelentún” those are Water wells (cenotes in spanish \si-ˈnō-tē\) where you can swim and dive. It’s a fantastic place to visit. If you ever travel to the city feel free to contact me.

Glad you liked it and thanks for the travel tip. It looks beautiful and I think we will definitely pay it a visit. We are sticking to Yukatan so unfortunately we will not have time to visit Mexico city.
