Month: April 2014

Although it feels like I just got back from Mexico last week (okay, it was a week ago tomorrow), I really did just get back from Philadelphia earlier today. I had a bit of a travel whirlwind between being on vacation in Mexico for a week and then having to fly out to Philly for […]

Now that Mexico 2014 is over, I wanted to put together a review of the resort we stayed at, the Oasis Sens Cancún. I’ll preface this review with a caveat – I’ve never stayed at an all-inclusive resort before, so I have no basis for comparison. Additionally, I know service and building standards vary widely […]

If you’ve done multiple loads of laundry, picked up your dog from the sitter, and wished you had more/better food in the house, you may have just gotten back from a vacation! I know those are all things I’ve experienced in the last 24 hours, at least! In case you haven’t already figured it out, […]

After the rain we experienced on Tuesday, it was great to have a cooler day on Wednesday. The temperature hovered right around 79-80 all day and there was a nice breeze, so it was noticeably cooler. Fine by me! Because of the sunburn on my shoulders, I kept the upper half of my body in […]

Our fifth day in Mexico didn’t actually turn out to be that great because the one thing happened that you never want to happen on a beach vacation. It RAINED! We were able to enjoy most of the morning, even though it was on the cloudy side and there were some sprinkles a few times. […]

It’s amazing how different this trip is to the ones I normally take. I’m having a lot of fun, but there are only so many ways to say that we’re having fun in the sun. So let’s try saying it in a haiku: Much fun in the sun Enjoying this Cancun trip Hope it never […]

I wish I had something more exciting to report aside from fun in the sun, but alas, I really don’t. Too bad. 🙂 We had a lot of fun on Sunday here in Cancun though! The last member of our party arrived around mid-morning (she wasn’t able to come on Friday, so she flew in […]

Or, Days 1 and 2 in Mexico. 🙂 So far, so good! Is anyone surprised that I sprung for internet on this trip? If so, you shouldn’t be. As far as hotel internet go, it wasn’t a bad deal – only $43 for a full week’s worth. It would have felt weird to not be […]

The day has come and we’re just about on our way to sunny Cancun, Mexico! Of course, Mother Nature had to make it tough on us by dumping close to ten inches of snow on the Minneapolis area since yesterday, but that’s not going to stop us! All six of us got to the airport, […]
