This is a blast from the past, which we’re posting since we can’t travel at the moment. I reprocessed the pictures we took from this trip with modern tools (primarily the latest version of Lightroom, with a little Photoshop or plug-in help as needed).
In late October 2003, we took advantage of a few days that Oma had off, cashed in some frequent flyer miles, and headed off to Portugal for a long weekend. (This was actually the second time we did a long international weekend – the year before, we got cheap tickets to London and did some sightseeing and saw a couple of shows. But I haven’t tackled digitizing our film yet, so that trip will wait.)
After the end of our first long trip in August, I was enticed back into the working world for a couple of months by my former employer. It was great to see everyone and do a little catching up. The short work assignment ended just before Thanksgiving.
With our next road trip not starting until the end of January, we looked at options to get someplace warmer for a week or two. Never having been to Mexico before and with early December having off-season prices, we decided to explore a bit of the Yucatan. Flights into Cancun were cheap (about $300), so the plan was to rent a car and check out a couple of cities, some more Maya ruins (we’d been to Tikal in Guatemala and a couple of sites in Belize) and finish up with some beach time before heading back for the Christmas holiday.
