Here is her diary

 

Destination Tulum, Mexico – My husband & I just returned it’s now my new favorite place!  I loved it for several reasons!

Month We went in March

Stayed at  boutique hotel called Rosa Del Viento

We booked an ocean view room.  While minimal (the rooms have no TV, the furnishings are very basic), it was everything we needed! The ocean was steps away and the view was breathtaking.  The hotel has a lovely restaurant on-site that makes the most delicious ceviche.  We had breakfast there every morning, and dinner twice.

In your suitcase Bring your favorite bathing suits, a few long sundresses, sandals, a good hat and do NOT forget bug spray! The mosquitoes are fierce!

Dined at  I had so many wonderful dinners in Tulum.  That’s another reason I love it so much – there is a big emphasis on fresh, flavorful cuisine and also a lot of Vegan options.  My favorite meal had to be at a small restaurant called La Cocina de Corina, which is within the Kin Ha hotel.  We had grilled prawns and an octopus ceviche that was so fresh!  I also had delicious dinner at Posada Margherita – they make fresh pasta!
Shopped  I didn’t really shop on this trip, except to pick up a few small trinkets for my baby girl. I got her a hand stitched doll (muñeca) and a hot pink wool owl (also hand stitched).

Diary  We would wake up to the sound of the waves crashing, and walk a few steps to the restaurant at our hotel.  We would both have breakfast, and coffee.  After breakfast, we would either hit the beach or embark on an adventure (a hike through the ruins, or swimming in a cenote).  We’d have a delicious lunch, take a relaxing nap on the beach, and then shower & change for an early dinner.  We were in bed by 9:00PM every night – but that’s exactly what we needed on this vacation!

Tips Plan to relax, bring a good book, your sunblock, mosquito repellant.  It’s very fun to rent a bicycle and ride through the strip of all the beach hotels. I also suggest a day trip to the ruins in Coba, and checking out the ruins on the beach in Tulum.  If you like to snorkel, there is a wonderful cenote called the Grand Cenote, where you can snorkel in a cave.

Mode of travel  We flew direct via American Airlines

  • Soneva Fushi is an Island that celebrates the natural environment. The first sustainable luxury hotel in Maldives since 1995, creating a positive impact on Baa Atoll and the neighboring islands. I was proud and happy to be part of the island and learn so much more about sustainability travel. @discoversoneva
  • Hello winter in Dubai. Back here for a couple of days and rushing through the week before I take off again. I was fortunate enough to have met and worked with @zeebalife who I quickly ‘clicked’ with the moment we started chatting earlier this year. I don’t ‘click’ very easily I must admit... and I’m very much in my own bubble... and that’s ok... so when I do, I hang on to them because it just works without any effort. And it’s the best kind of friendship. Happy Sunday! #MyDubai
  • Just because she let go... doesn’t mean she wanted to... 💫
  • Let’s take a ride to the spa together 🌴 @fsmaldives
  • Droning isn’t always easy in Maldives especially when you see seaplanes crossing and guest worrying about their full right privacy. But at sunrise, when everyone is still asleep, and when the jets are no where close by, you can always fly really quick and capture the beauty of the island - ❤️🌴 @fsmaldives
  • I am drawn to your imperfections. I am drawn to shared interests and hobbies in people. I am drawn to the light in your eyes when you talk about something you love. I am drawn to your success and to your failures and most of all your challenges. I am drawn to every non-perfect side of you, because otherwise, everything will be lifeless.
  • How long can you stay in Maldives? For me, I think I can do about two weeks and never get bored, even on rainy days! @fsmaldives
  • From where she drones from @fsmaldives Who said a 5 year old couldn’t use a drone haven’t met Chloè 😊
  • Sometimes, unexpected friendships are the best 💫 - Sunny, @saltysun__  the surf manager at @discoversoneva has started a sustainability surfing programme - one of its kind in Maldives. So when she told me let’s go out at sea in the pouring rain with crazy winds, I just knew we would be friends instantly! I can’t begin to describe how much I adore the sea and what it means to me. I’m in my element. ❤️
  • A wish you were here kind of moment 😊

  • Touchdown back to my favorite place... Maldives. 
Getting involved in our ocean conservation efforts by the marine biologist at @discoversoneva and the sustainability programme they are working on, for example, the Soneva Ocean Stewards (SOS) programme has taught hundreds of children how to swim and encourages the local community to appreciate the precious marine ecosystem surrounding them.
  • The year is almost over - flew by so quick at times and times it passed too slow!! This was shot in January early this year. I have a good feeling about 2018 despite 2017 being a little challenging. What are your Christmas plans? I’m spending it in Lebanon with family and friends, what about you?
