Clemence and Nicolas had been out of medical school for almost 10 years. They had successful practices, wonderful friends and a settled though busy life with 3 young children and one on the way. It was a simple decision, they say, to leave France and travel with their kids for half a year.
It wasn’t because they were unhappy with their lives but because they knew that in time their children might become anchored to friends, school and hobbies and lose interest in travelling with mom and dad. “…and also we wanted to reconnect as a couple. Our lives were so busy and we needed to recover ourselves and get to know our kids better too.”
They came to Ek Balam from Nepal, New Zealand and Easter Island and enjoyed a week of our pool and gardens; the local kids; the ruins; and cenotes. In two weeks, after Merida, Uxmal and Tulum, they will be unpacking their well worn suitcases and probably dreaming of their next trip!
