Tulum

Tulum, Mexico. Within the past year, it has seemed to be the talk of the town. The picture perfect beaches, the warm waters, and the exotic resorts. It is also quite the yoga town (although I wouldn’t consider my unathletic self the yoga type…)

As I had a craving for adventure and a brand new passport to fill the pages of, Tulum popped up as the perfect destination to relax and breathe.

The closest airport is Cancun, and from there it’s about a 90 minute drive to the town of Tulum.

Things I loved:

Riding a bike down the one main street of Tulum. Pretty much the entire town can be seen from one main street that spans from the south to the north of the city. Stop and look at some of the shops (there were so many with huge macrame hangings), restaurants, and resorts!

The beautiful resorts that have beachfront views with daybeds and restaurants. Time will stand still as you soak in its untouched beauty.

There are beach clubs whose soul purpose is for you to lay on the chairs and beds while ordering a drink (or two). They make sure their water and the sands are in tip-top condition cleaning out any seaweed that may make its way to their beaches.

The people! Everyone was so friendly and nice. It was so awesome how diverse the crowd was and how everyone becomes friends. There were people from Germany, America, and other countries all within a small proximity.

And as a true foodie, I must say that the all-inclusive life is THE life! I greatly enjoyed the never-ending food, room service, and drinks!

I would definitely recommend staying for more than 2 days, as it is quite the distance being a drive away from the airport. And yes, already wanting to go back and explore more of the town.

down town.

  
Hello my loves!

Well, there is just something special about downtown areas. You know what I mean…I love how much there is to do, compacted in such a small area of space. It’s fun going to downtown areas of different cities to see the sights  that they offer.

  
I had been wanting to go to downtown Fullerton in just about forever, because there is this store that my friend told me about and ever since then I have pretty much religiously followed them.Oh hello friend! Yes, that’s the name of the most cutest, loveliest, *insert-every-single-descriptive-word-of-adoration-known-to-man-kind here.* I wanted to move every item in this store into my home.. Like, pronto.  

I also got to satisfy my sweet-tooth and enjoy the most delicious tea cafe I have ever really been to! I’m not a huge tea person, but matcha is my thing. Where’s it at? Tranquil Tea Lounge is where it’s at. And the only reason why I’m telling you this is because I’d love to see you there next time, obviously.  But really, berry matcha smoothies?! The quality of their tea was impeccable. You know where else it’s at? Bolu Bakery Cafe. Such a large coffee/bakery shop which has the BEST decor also. 

  
These stacked wall plants were the best. If only this was around the corner from my house.. Well actually good thing it’s not, otherwise I’m afraid I would be here way too often. 

I’ll see you next time,

Xoxo,

Lena
