My little adventures south of the border.

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.

    Sorry for all your troubles so far this year! Isla will be the perfect place to relax and recharge! I went out on a boat ( didn’t get in the water) last year for whale sharks–took my niece & nephew–even just staying in the boat was amazing! They were everywhere! Have fun!

    Oh, my goodness, that is so awful. I can only imagine the pain and hassle. Hope it will just be a memory by the time you head to Isla. AND that you can still take those spectacular pictures we love. Whale shark tours are a must but please go with Capt Tony or a reputable company. If you hit it on the right day, it can be a magical experience with dozens and dozens of whale sharks. Hope this trip brings back the Isla magic for you as well. So glad you are back!!

  3. Thanks, Ann and Helen. I agree…I need Isla to recharge my batteries and find some quiet and peace on Isla. I’m so looking forward to it. I definitely will be using Tony for the whale shark tour. Other than that, I will be totally relaxing.

  4. I don’t even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great.

    I don’t know who you are but definitely you are going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!
