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

  • From road trips to sailing across the Balkans. There were definitely some days that were extremely challenging from driving long distances to sailing for days around Croatia, but I've had an incredible adventure, made new friends and memories. I'm posting an article tonight on everything you need to know if you are traveling to Montenegro for the first time tonight online. Thank you @flydubai for flying me to Tivat smoothly!

  • Celebrate quitting the job that was killing your soul 🌊💕
  • Day 10: Sailing for two weeks across the Balkans/Dalmatia - I'm feeling so far away from everything... The scariest thing about distance... is that you don’t know whether they’ll miss you or forget you when you're gone.
It's bittersweet 💕
  • King's landing 🏰 (I couldn't find a better caption it was stuck in my head the whole time!!!) 😊
  • I worked out what would make me happy, and I worked out what I wanted to do, and I trained myself to do the job that would make those two things happen. 'You make it sound so simple.' He said
'It is simple,' she said. 'The thing is, it's also a lot of hard work. And people don't want to put in a lot of work. But I didn't get here simply by wishing for it.'
  • A fortified village dating back to the 15th century with stories and legends, the island of Sveti Stefan and the beautiful @amansvetistefan
  • The largest lake in Southern Europe. Skadar Lake, 70% in Montenegro, fully protected as National Park - 30%  being in Albania.
