1 down, 6 to go…

Earlier this month, I took a little trip to Cancun with the BF. Even though we were in Cancun and drank our fair share of fruity drinks, we also managed to do some cultural activities – you know, the kind that would make Mama proud.

We hopped on a tour bus and headed out to Chichen Itza, 1 of the 7 new wonders of the world. Not to be confused with the 7 wonders of world…these are new. If any readers are a fan of An Idiot Abroad, Karl Pilkington toured all of these in season 1. Needless to say, I was a little excited to be where Karl had been! And if you’re not a fan or have never seen the show, shame on you and here’s a handy list of all 7 wonders.

Assuming the Mayan prophecy is false and the world doesn’t end December 21, 2012. I plan on seeing the other 6! The World Cup is in Rio in 2014 – BF and I could easily knock out 2 in one go with a little stint down to Peru. Sounds like a plan!

Cool! I’ve only seen the 1st episode of this season’s AIA, and a small part of one ep from the first season. Karl was in a tent, having peed into a plastic bottle he was marvelling/fuming at how he could have only drank a small amount of what was in left in there, yet he nearly filled the bottle up with his pee. I have to check out more episodes, I could use the laugh.

I don’t think I’d want to be in Rio for World Cup, or Carnival. little too crizzazy for this old lady! But you all have fun!

i haven’t watched all of the second season yet either, but i think the first one was far better. he’s just so blunt. and it’s great!

Rio will definitely be ridiculous for world cup, but it would still be a lot of fun! If it doesn’t happen for WC, I hope to still go sometime relatively soon!

I’m running out of time, but I put see all 7 on my list of “to-do’s before I’m 30”. I’ll just up the number to 40 and it’ll be fine 🙂

I haven’t been to South America yet so that is still a must-see place for me.

[…] I went to dinner at my uncle’s house. We were catching up and I was telling him about my recent trip to Cancun and I talked about why Chichen Itza was considered a wonder of the world and about the Mayans. […]
