So here it is - My first official post under the new blog name. Since I'm still catching up from my Mexication (Mexico + Vacation = Mexication), I'll share with you some of the highlights from our trip.
Catolonia Riviera Maya (our home for 5 days)
The boardwalk along the beach - also where I spotted a woman sunbathing topless...front side forward.
Octopus a man found while snorkeling in the lagoon by our resort.
One of the many pelicans that hung out by the beach.
Matt's first Long Island at the swim up bar - one of MANY.
The cenote we snorkeled in. I expected to see fish - I saw none.
Snorkeled twice in the lagoon by our resort.
Knick knacks sold by local vendors.
One of the many tequila sodas I enjoyed.
Lounging at the bar along the beach.
Ziplining and repelling in the jungle.
Overall it was amazing to get some much needed R&R. We had a great time, but we did realize a few things...we still enjoy having access to unlimited booze all week long, but we would much prefer good bottles of vino, one of a kind meals and visiting places with lots of sight seeing. With that said, we've decided that next year we'll put tropical vacations on hold (aside from a Cabo trip for my best friend's wedding) and are now planning for a Eurocation in 2012!
