I Have a Date

Friday, 22 January 2010


For the first time since September, I'm going to dress up and go out to dinner with my husband.  We are going to hold hands, hug, stare into each other's eyes over the table and toast our commitment and love.

Kingsley and I aren't together because we're waiting on the red tape that comes with trying to live in a new country but enough of that - it is time to see each other!

We're going to be touring the Yucatan Peninsula starting in Cancun.  We hope to see Isla Mujeres, Playa del Carmen, Tulum and Cozumel.  Our plans include seeing the Mayan ruins, snorkeling, bargaining at the market for something to add to our collection of mentos from travels and of course, eating delicious Mexican food and seafood.  We'll of course throw in a few cervezas Mexicanas and maybe one night of tequilla tasting.  At the Ritz en la Zona Hotel they have 150 varieties to try.  Our hotel also looks like a nice place to just chill by the pool and read a book (holding hands of course).

I can't stand not blogging so you'll hear from me - but not too often. 

P.S.  Yes, I have a house sitter who is babysitting Violet.

We loved Playa Del Carman and Tulum. If you can, go out to Cozumel Chichen Itza is a blast but it is a long trip - interesting but long, so it would depend on how many days you have. The food in that area is great, but it isn't, well, what I generally think of when I think of Mexican - it has more ingredients, and while it is definitely spiced, the spices are not hot. Very, very good stuff. Hope you guys have a blast!

P.S. The reason I didn't mention Cancun is because the only place I've been there is the airport, so don't take that as a slight - I just have no basis from which to speak.
