Mexico 2015



Tulum beach

I am very much European oriented and most of my holidays have been taken in Europe, so when my partner suggest to me a holiday in Mexico I was sceptical. I had not heard much about Mexico apart for Chichen Itza and I read a little about the Mayan civilisation but that was it. As you see I am not a very adventurous person, that's why my lovely BF got me a package holiday.
I have to say that we had excellent time and package holidays have a huge advantage for me, because I am such a lazy person. We flew to Cancun with Thomson airlines and stayed in the Riviera Maya in Grand Sirenis Resort and Spa.
The advantage of a package holiday is everything is taken care of. The transfer, the food, the hotel, and what particularly worked for us was that we could book trips to visit Chitzen Itza and Coba. I have to admit that the trips were every well organised, we were supplied with plenty of refreshments and provided with professional guides who gave us plenty of information about the Mayan's and their culture.
One of our adventures was to explore the world outside our hotel. We took trips to the nearby towns such as Playa del Carmen and Tulum. The travel was very easy, we used local transport Collectivos which are small privately owned minibuses. Information about Collectivos was available in our hotel. My favourite was Tulum and its amazing beach. I could stay on that beach all day.
After visiting Tulum we decided to be more adventurous and we took trip to Cozumel on the ferry. The ferry are leaving from Playa del Carmen every hour.
The other place near to our hotel was Akumal, a small beach-front village where you can hire diving equipment and swim with turtles.
Mexico was brilliant it has tasty food, hot sunny weather and friendly people. If you are deciding to go for holiday I can recommend Mexico.

Life happens...

Life happens, when you least expect it. You are planning a rosy future and suddenly your plans are destroyed by circumstances. A few months ago I had lot of plans for my blog but life happened, my priorities changed and I had to deal with more important issues. I went against all the rules like "do not take a break from blogging " and I took a loooooong break, boohoo....
Well, let's face the facts: my blog was not a source of income, a girl needs to eat and pay the bills in London... I had to make some difficult decisions and sacrificed my blogging hobbies (boohoo again). But now I am back. Everybody deserves a second chance...
This picture was taken in Mexico.
