An Aussie’s View of Mahahual, Mexico

I was sitting on the malecon about 5 or 6 weeks ago, and this guy walks up to me wearing an outback hat and asked me in an Australian accent, was I Stewart the guy who wrote the blog about living in Costa Maya and Mahahual. I told him yes, and then he told me he read my blog, and he and his wife were traveling through Mexico, and decided because they had read my blog, to stop and visit Mahahual.

We got to talking, and he told me he and his wife were from Perth, Australia, and were on an extended holiday, traveling. He told me he and his wife put everything in storage in Perth, and decided to travel and see the world. He and his wife have been writing a blog and taking photos of their travels and I shared both of their blogs in an earlier article I wrote.

Well he told me he and his wife were going to stay a week or two in Mahahual and see some sights around here, (they ended staying three weeks in Mahahual). So every day he would come by or drop by and we would chat, and he got to be a regular here. He would wear his Aussie hat, (In fact I never saw him without it on). He told me a lot about stuff about Australia, that I did not know.

I have written about Aussie Steve in the past, so today I thought I would share his blog, and an Aussie view so to speak of Mahahual. But first I have to share a story. One day after he had been here awhile and we had gotten to know each other pretty good, he asked me if didn’t my readers and people from South Carolina get mad or angry at me for at what he called, “Taking a piss” on them.”( I think that is Australian for what us southerners would call dumping on, or making fun of your people). I thought for a minute and said, “No I doubt it, they hate me already, and plus if you are a “Redneck” and you know you are a “Redneck”, you can call other people “Redneck” and “Take a piss on them”, as he would call it. So if any of you out there think I am “Taking a piss” on you let me know. (Note… I got a message from Aussie Steve today after I had written this post, and he informed me the correct Australian slang is “Taking the piss out of them”, not what I said above, “Take a piss on them”, my mistake.)

I am sharing his blog with a link below, because I like to give the readers of this blog other views and opinions of Mahahual, not just my personal insight. So here is an Aussie’s view and take on Mahahual. I heard from Aussie Steve the other day, and he and his wife went to Cuba, and are now in the Bahamas, who knows where they will end up next. I don’t know about you guys, but I enjoy meeting adventurous and different people from all over the world, and I have met many in Mahahual since I have been here.

    HI STEWART, ENJOYED AUSSIE STEVE’S BLOG. MUST AGREE (AS I AM SURE YOU DO) WITH MANY OF HIS ASSESSMENTS. ALMEDA

  2. Reblogged this on Costa Maya Mahahual and commented:

    I am reblogging this today because we were sitting around at the Tropicante today after the cruise ship left. There are a lot of expats in town that come every year, and some here for the first time. One of the guys that was here last year asked me, “Where is that Steve guy I met here last year?” I asked which Steve, Tropicante Steve, Canadian Steve, English Steve, Aussie Steve? He said the guy was from Australia, so I said you mean Aussie Steve.
    So several people asked me, “Who is Aussie Steve?”
    So for you guys out there wondering who Aussie Steve is, here is his story. And Aussie Steve if you are out there and read this, get in touch, people have asked me if you are coming back. So drop me a message or line, on where and what you are doing now. We have Canadians, Americans, English, and Mexicans, but no Aussies sitting around with the “Living and dying in 3/4 time club”.
