This is one of the six monasteries built atop rock formations.
When we left Mexico City at the end of February for Peru after studying Spanish for two months, we had agreed that we would one day return to Mexico to explore the rest of the country. That day came much earlier than expected.
In one of her great tricks to get cheap flights, Helene booked a round trip from Mexico City to Lima, all the while not intending to ever use the return leg. But after finding a remarkably cheap ticket from Cancun to Madrid for $166 through Pullmantur Air, we decided to put that return ticket to good use.
It was this afternoon while we were hanging out in the Athens apartment we rented for a week when Helene realized today marks day 200 of traveling across the world. It is somewhat fitting that this morning we had no idea where we would be traveling to by the end of the week, but of course that’s the fun of it.
So, for this post I’ve decided to list five things that happened on this trip that we totally didn’t plan for or expect.
