Holbox Island, Mexico

Holbox Island Holbox Island, Mexico In all honesty, I am torn about writing this blog post about Holbox Mexico. Part of me is desperate to share the simplicity and natural beauty we discovered on this idyllic island. The other part of me feels driven to protect this peaceful paradise. Driven to help preserve a way of life by locking our memories away and keeping Holbox hidden. However, we can’t apologise for stumbling across this island. Like many before us, this island has left an indelible footprint on our souls for many reasons. Love being the first. A marriage proposal under the starry night sky on the white coralline sand. Beyond romance, Holbox is the…

Long weekend in Venice

Long Weekend in Venice Venice City Breaks Why did I wait until my late forties to spend a weekend in Venice?  Happily, Olivier’s birthday provided the perfect excuse to visit Venice for a weekend. Short breaks to Venice are perfect as trips to Venice offer something for everyone. We opted for 3 nights in Venice because 4 days in Venice are perfect to explore what this beautiful city has to offer. It might sound silly, but weekend breaks to Venice start the moment you catch sight of the city from the air. Your heart can’t fail to skip a beat at the first glimpse of the iconic miniature buildings floating in front of you…

Backpacking Mexico – Things to Do in Yucatan Peninsula

Backpacking Mexico - Things to Do in Yucatan Peninsula Backpacking Mexico Yucatan Peninsula Like most people, my first visit to Cancun in Quintana Roo on the Yucatan peninsula meant a stay in one of the all-inclusive hotels lining the champagne Yucatan beaches of the popular Zona Hotelera (Hotel Zone).  To be honest, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that!  I had an unforgettably pampered week at my best friend’s wedding. However, a one-off day trip from the hotel to Tulum awakened something inside me.  In a nutshell, Tulum inspired me to discover more about the real Yucatan peninsula beyond the big hotels.  Wandering around the Mayan ruins of Tulum and admiring the breath-taking coastal location,…
