... when you're constantly on the move, few things remain unchanged.

Cozumel, Mexico

Tuesday, March 10, 2015


It's hard to believe that just 14 days ago, I was on the paradise Island of Cozumel, Mexico!  This place will always hold a special spot in my heart, since it was the first bit of Mexican soil my feet ever touched.  I've always wanted to go to this part of the American continent - so rich in history and mysterious tales: the land of the Mayans, Aztecs and pirates!  Then there are the beaches... every bit as pristine as the ones I grew up near, in QLD Australia, but much more enticing because of the exotic flair and Caribbean association.

Cozumel exceed my expectations.  If it's part of the third world, you would never tell.  The streets are well kept and gloriously decorated in colourful paint and bright, blooming accents.  The locals zoom around upon scooters, waving and smiling - eager to give directions or help out.  Smells of barbecued meat waft deliciously through the air all around the city of San Miguel and coconuts grow beside fig trees as far as the eye can see.

I don't think I stopped smiling for a full minute all day!  From the second we left the port - wandered through San Miguel to our scooter rental shop - rode over to the San Gervasio ruins and explored every inch of the sight - to the afternoon spent on the beach at Punta Morena and then back by the port side.  It was a simply perfect day in paradise!  Several times I had to pinch myself in case I was dreaming and at one point during lunch (just after a real mariachi band serenaded us), Will and I looked at each other and burst out laughing at the fact that this is our life and that we get to have these kinds of experiences! #blessed

I would love to come back someday.  One day on Cozumel just isn't enough!  There's still so much to see, do and taste.  Viva Mexico!





poinsettias!  Just growing... in their natural climate.
I was blown away b/c I never knew!

Mexican bar with swings
'OMG! A BAR WITH SWINGS INSTEAD OF STOOLS!
We're soooo coming back to  drink Mexican beer while we swing!'

we said, in awe, as we walked by, en route to our scooter store.






This is what the road to San Gervasio looked like the entire way.
In case you can't tell, it's lined with fig trees <3

there were iguanas e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e. and no one told me they
climb trees!  I was proceeding with caution after that.

see the iguana here?  As if still paying homage to the
 sun god after all these centuries...
Look! I'm touching it! I've never felt so giddy.
an actual, ancient, well!



Our view for lunch at Punta Morena

My delicious pina colada in a coconut, with a face!
what else but ceviche with local mahi for lunch?... yum :)
I wasn't kidding about getting serenaded :)












You know it!! We swung the rest of the afternoon away
with ocean views, Mexican beer and happy hearts <3
