The Ruins of Teotihuacan is a UNESCO World Heritage Site located about one hour outside of México City. It is the oldest city in North/South America and dates 150 AD. Its early history is a mystery with no definitive answer as to the founders. Abandoned in 800 AD, the Aztecs discovered the ruins years later and named it Teotihuacan. The city’s impressive architecture, planning, evidence of trade and size indicates an intelligent multi-cultural civilization.

One, this is a (proverbial) bicycle made for two – Kristin and Marco. Newlyweds (as of January 2011), we share a love of adventure travel, new places, new experiences, new foods and new friends. We are young, brave, motivated and savvy travelers. We knew as soon as we were married, we would start our life by exploring the corners of the globe together.
