This has been a quiet week for both me and the blog as I spent the Thanksgiving holiday relaxing on the beach here in Tulum with the Brit. While we did manage a bit of snorkeling and a trip to the nearby town of Valladolid, for the most part we did a whole lotta nothin’….which is exactly what we’d planned.
As much as I loved spending time with my favorite fog-breathing redcoat (an affectionate term), it was hard being away from my family on one of my favorite holidays. I made a promise to my mom I wouldn’t miss the Texas-sized turkey dinner and annual thrashing of our beloved Cowboys again, if I can help it.
As for the bull shark dive we’d wanted to do – the weather didn’t cooperate and all of our planned dives were cancelled due to rain and winds. I’ll have look certain death (over-dramatization) in the eyes another time.
It’s back to adventuring this week as I head to southern Guatemala in the morning for my last two weeks in Central America. I can’t wait to churn out more posts and re-focus on my task: seeking out adventure and pushing myself out of my comfort zone! I’m already looking into booking my first paragliding trip in Panajachel. Mom, pretend you didn’t read that.
Have a fantastic week!
