Surviving My First Earthquake

As an Englishman, I have never had much reason to worry about natural disasters other than on a purely humanitarian level when I have watched devastation take place on the television. Hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, cyclones and tornadoes are not something that we really worry about on the British Isles. We may freak out when the waves reach over the top of Torquay’s sea wall, or … Continue reading Surviving My First Earthquake

Mexico City Police, My Experience So Far

You would think that a country which is known for providing the world with the largest drug cartels on the planet, would have terrible levels of policing, and you would be absolutely right. I haven’t ventured into Sinaloa or Jalisco to experience the policing skills up there, but I don’t think I ‘d be shooting too wide of the mark to suggest that the law … Continue reading Mexico City Police, My Experience So Far

In the southern Mexican state of Oaxaca lies the beautiful coastal port of Puerto Escondido, the beaches are endless and relatively untouched and the sea is breathtaking. Puerto Escondido attracts many surfers and scuba divers to it’s shores and after seeing the beaches for myself, I can understand why. It feels like a movie scene. My friend and I stayed in the beautifully luxurious Vivo Resorts, they occupy … Continue reading Reviewing Vivo Resorts Beachside Condos in Oaxaca
