summer time

Hi friends!

Summer is almost half over (which I CANNOT believe), and if you’re like me, it went by way too fast. With most of my trips happening in the fall, here are some ways to really enjoy your summer to the fullest:

1. Eat ice cream. And lots of it! I love celebrating all the fun foodie holidays that happen, and with National Ice Cream day last week, it was the perfect excuse. Throw an ice cream, eat a pint before that show you’re watching, however you prefer really!

What’s in my cone, you ask? Moose Tracks ice cream original flavor is the way to go. I got the original flavor which was super nostalgic with the perfect vanilla base mixed with chocolate!

2. Spend lots and lots of time soaking up the sun (with lots of sunscreen and a good book in hand of course). The beach, the pool, the park… enjoy that natural Vit D!

3. Go to a local winery or brewery. A lot of the times they’re super picturesque and a the wineries are a breath of fresh air. Yes I do like my grapes!

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.
