We were meant to return to Egypt but there was a coup. So, with only a few weeks’ notice we turned our sights to Mexico, Belize and Guatemala. This is interesting. Usually I research and plan, but Spirit had a different idea. We were to have no plans because no plans meant no expectations and no expectations opened us up to a whole range of possibility.
We hired a car for two months, bought a map and drove. As such we allowed the trip to develop. We travelled, unknown to us, at the hottest possible time … May/June. Hot and still. Unbearably hot and still. For travellers and locals alike. But with the heat came an understanding of acceptance.
For us, Mexico was a journey of acceptance and trust. It was a time when we began to listen to our inner guidance. And it was the first time when we felt like we were really working as a team. “Team Us”.
