Had to move out of my Airbnb mansion today in (Playa Car) Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, Great host Maria, Ralf and family. They even invited me to join them for Christmas dinner, I’m such a lucky guy. Today I moved into my own one-bedroom apartment it is also a suitable place, 8000 pesos a month I think it’s something like $500 Canadian, excellent location too. I may have to leave sooner if I go back to work before the month is up. The picture is the front of the house and the balcony is from my bedroom the small jungle between the house and the beach
This is where I live now in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico. Not bad for 8000 pesos a month, I think it adds up to about $500.00 Canadian a month. About 6 blocks from the beach and 5th Avenue
I just got a good deal on a 🚲 Bicycle. I’ve been shopping for a bike since I’ve been here in Playa Del Carmen, prices are high due to Christmas, even in the pond shops, so I just got talking to a couple of Mexicans and an American having a problem with the bank machine on Fifth Avenue I said nice bike to the one Mexican guy and asked him? do you know where I can buy a bike like his? He said yes, this one he said it’s worth about 1200 pesos, but he will give it to me for 800 that’s a bargain, I said I have 640 that’s it, he said deal, I’m so 🍀 Lucky. Even the guy behind us selling tours watched the transaction heard us, I took a picture of the seller and I he said why? do I want a photo of him, I said just in case it’s stolen then he asked me if I was a cop, I laughed and said no, then he walked away I looked over at the guy selling the tours he said what a great deal you got there and it’s not stolen because he knows the seller he is a local. I never did listen to mom saying don’t talk to strangers’ son, you have to strangers all the time if you want to be a traveller that’s always looking and finding good deals.
I took an around the world trip on my own about 10 years ago. I started in Tahiti and then went to Cook Island, New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Mexico and Brazil for carnival. It was too fast as I did all of that in three months. This time I am wide open with no plans except just wake up in the morning and end up somewhere else. The past few years I have been hanging out in Australia, Cuba, Mexico and Central America lots and it all has been amazing. I love it all and all the places I get to see and all people I get to meet.
