We arrived in Cancun yesterday which is the first stop on our world trip. When we landed in Mexico we had been travelling for 16 hours, so rather than wait for a bus to take us to our hostel I made Ryan book us a taxi as we were exhausted. We are staying at Hostel Orquideas which is a lovely little hostel about a 15 minute bus ride from the beach. I couldn't help feeling sad and very far away from home when we arrived here, I was desperate for sleep but way too hot to actually fall asleep. I worried myself thinking.. how will I do this for 8 months!? Luckily the hostel owners turned the air con on early for me and we slept straight through until the next morning and woke up feeling much better.

Today Daniel who works at the hostel took us to the beach. We went to an amazing beach club called Mandala Beach which had beds to sunbathe on, music, drinks and the most beautiful clear blue water I have ever seen.. all for free! The hostel we are staying in have a deal with the club so guests get to use it for free during the day. We stayed there all day and made our way back home on the bus very tired and very sunburnt!

Tonight we will have dinner with all the other guests in the courtyard and tomorrow we leave for Tulum.
