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

  • Have you ever thought of going to Madeira Island? It’s all on the blog. An adventure guide to Madeira Island and reasons why you should go! 🌴

  • I’ve been on the road a lot in Lebanon which has been an adventure on its own! The Infiniti Q30 2.0 has the navigation system with updated maps of Lebanon which made it easier to find my way around. It’s things like this I love the most about returning back here. Endless road trips with friends and despite Lebanon being so small, the adventures are endless! #infinitilebanon #Q30
  • Home sweet home ♥️ Spent the weekend dancing the night away and at the beach during the day!
How was your weekend?? 🇱🇧
  • Compassion is power. Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, fear and happiness. 
Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery and to smile with those who are happy. Compassion towards others is what makes me human and it’s a skill that I’ve learned to cultivate. And if you don’t have it, then it would be difficult for me to have you in my life. 
So this is a reminder to be good to each other today and to those you don’t know. God knows how many of us need it. 
Happy Saturday ♥️
  • Lake Chouwen - Lebanon 🇱🇧
A beautiful reserve, a 45 minutes hike and an adventurous location through Jabal Moussa! I even drove through the tiniest road into the mountains and was freaking out but made it through thanks to my co-pilot :)!
Lebanon is filled and surrounded with beautiful nature. 🇱🇧
Had an incredible day exploring Lebanon with @ramimansourr @mikhaelbitar @sarahdibrahim @abbas_kalel
  • Lebanon’s morning activities are filled with daily road trips across the mountains and the coast with close friends. Stopping by historical landmarks and eating the best zaatar in small villages. It also helps when your #infiniti car has BOSE sound-system 😊
Happy Tuesday everyone! 🇱🇧♥️ #Q30 #infinitilebanon
  • Good morning from home in Lebanon in Beit Douma. I can’t tell you how happy I am to be back in Lebanon!!! Have you ever been?

I’ve added an article on a guide to 9 guesthouses in Lebanon, you can click the link in my bio.
  • There really isn’t any better way to sail across Madeira Island than with Pedro and his gang! @rotadoscetaceos2016 We saw whales and swam with wild dolphins!!!! We jumped in the (freezing) Atlantic sea and went diving and discovered the most beautiful island 🌴 Now it’s your turn to go!
  • A beautiful slow morning in Madeira 🌴
Isn’t it beautiful?
  • I believe in giving people time...Time to process the good and the bad because there is something so beautiful about unforced bonds. 
I’m a forever kind of person. I don’t have room for temporary. I believe in big love, of growing old with your friends and soulmates. I believe in being there for people through thick and thin. I believe in not giving up when things get tough. I believe in relationships that can make it through everything.
  • It was sunny and we were heading to the pool in Lisbon when all of a sudden a little rain cloud passed and so decided to just walk out and get some pastel de nata 😊
  • Today, my mind is like a laptop set up. 
I have 20 tabs open, 4 of them are frozen and I have no idea where the music is coming from... 🤷🏼‍♀️ Dreaming of going back to Madeira 🌴
