What can I say, Mexico is amazing. I will forever be astonished at the fact that a mere 6 hour plane ride away is a completely different world. Edmonton -30 degrees Playa Del Carmen +30 degrees, a full 60 degree swing.
I went on this good time galavant with my family.
Like kings and queens.
We saw the sights; marveled at nature; swam in a lagoon- this water baby was in heaven; lounged like legends; and wondered in amazement at how a person is able to make animals out of towels.
I had so many things that I planned to write about this trip- there was an abundance of hilarious stories; but it really can be summed up in to one word, EPIC. I bonded with my step siblings and cousin- which was long over due; and I fell in love with my parents all over again- they are the masterminds behind this trip and they're a blast. I couldn't ask for a better hand to be dealt in life. On this trip I was reminded, again, what life is about- family.
I hate to be sappy- but vacations do that to me; I had an amazing time with my family, away from the internet, Twitter, the blog and everything that seems so important all the time; it was nice to just spend time with people that care about so much.
With that being said, I think I made far too many trips to the buffet and drank about a thousand too many Isla Larga's (long Island Iced Teas) for the next 12 months.
