Where I’m Bound
First of all, thanks, Gil, for your suggestions.
I’ve decided where I’m going for my trip. This hasn’t been the best year so far. In January, I had oral surgery to have a wisdom tooth pulled.
In February, I caught the stomach virus that was going around town.
So, just before spring break, I checked airline fares and schedules and found a NON-STOP flight from San Antonio to Cancun for $419. Sweet. I booked it on Friday night before spring break. Then I decided I needed to crank up my exercise schedule in order to lose a few pounds before I got to Mexico. I went out Saturday morning on a power walk and BAM…I tripped over some vines in a grassy area because I was walking so fast and broke my wrist.
Just a little word of advice…don’t break your wrist. It is not an enjoyable experience. Mine was so bad, I had to have surgery to the tune of about $35,000. That was one expensive walk. Between a plate and some pins…and some physical therapy…I could think of about a million things I would rather have been doing in the past two months.
So, on that note, I will be returning to Isla Mujeres in June. After all my drama, I just want to relax, take in some sun, good food, and a few cervezas and margaritas. I will not be climbing any ruins on this run. My only adventure will be a several day trip to Cozumel since I’ve never been there and would like to see it.
I’m also thinking of swimming with the whale sharks for the first time. Considering my luck so far this year, I’m just hoping I won’t be the first tourist eaten by one.
