Cancun was great. Despite hurricane season, we amazingly had a really great week of warm sunny weather. After we finally received our lost luggage a couple days after arriving, we were able to relax and settle into our vacation. It was a lot harder for me to relax than I had imagined! I'm so used to being "go go go" all the time, that doing nothing and having nothing to do was actually really hard in the beginning. But I got used to it....and enjoyed being disconnected from the rest of the world for a little bit, actually finishing a book, and doing some brain teaser puzzles.

Isla Mujeres

In between doing nothing, swimming, laying out by the pool, and reading, we were able to squeeze in some pretty fantastic activities. While Bertrand spent a day golfing, I got to relax and be spoiled at the spa. We also spent a day at the island, Isla Mujeres, where we took a golf cart around the island, relaxed on the beach, and found a conk shell. One of the most memorable activities was when we took a jungle tour by jet ski. We rode the jet skis through the lagoon out to the ocean. Once we reached a specific area, we all jumped off and swam in the ocean where we snorkeled and looked at the fish in the coral reef. It was AMAZING!


We also got to go parasailing together! When asked if we wanted to get wet and saying yes, I had no idea what I was in for when they bounced us off the water! Talk about getting soaked.

Chichen Itza

Before heading home, we visited the ancient ruins of Chichen Itza which was declared one of the new 7 wonders of the world. It was beautiful. It was also extremely hot and humid.


We also celebrated two years of marriage!

I loved our vacation in Cancun, but it's great to be home again.
