Playagal's Guestbook

you are a talented writer!
hi Sal. I have been a fan of yours since I first started browsing the blog entries for the Playa area. I found your info very interesting and informative and actually put it to use a couple of years later when my husband and I (finally) traveled to Playa on our own adventure. Also got to see Cancun last year. Just read your most recent blog. I wanted to let you know that I think you are a very talented and funny writer. You must be a great story-teller and interesting dinner companion! Also, as a photographer myself - I am also very impressed with your photos. I hope to read more of your travel adventures! Life is so busy - we don't get to explore as much as I'd like to. It's at least fun to live vicariously thru your eyes and your words. Enjoy your time in Playa! Sincerely - Cindy in Pennsylvania.

Ah...the serenity
There is a cartoon of a guy with a dark cloud over his head looking glum. But he ain't a blond Canadian gal with attitude who'd like to punch ya and only drinks on T-day. Great blog Sal...great all the bad things on flights like a whirlpool are attracted to your flights...the rest of us can enjoy the in-house entertainment knowing all the bad stuff is heading Sal's way. Ah the serenity...yet I'm too restless to enjoy the feet up Playa way!

Ah the serenity
Hola Dave! Always love to hear from you. Yeah, I'm not a world traveler per se, but opportunity (my writing) opened a new world for a small town girl. I have learned a new language, a love of a new culture, made new friends, and explored many cultural/historical things. I love the ocean but rarely will you find me on a lounger. My feet take me miles a day, taking photos, seeing how people live outside the tourist areas. The Mayan history is rich, and being such a huge country I'm so honored to see a bit of it that I do. Now, when reading your blogs I get to go on a cyber magical carpet that takes me miles and miles away from home without leaving my chair. Thank you for your amazing blogs my Aussie friend! Sal Gal

Walking on Sunshine
Hi Bob, air travel can be downright scary depending on who is next to you. Every time I read the news someone is being arrested on a flight for disorderly behavior. But in the end we got here somewhat in our right minds...and we are enjoying ever second of our blessings! Thanks for the comment!

Thank you!
Thanks for hosting us. It was a fabulous week! Incredibly beautiful oceanfront condo in the heart of Playa del Carmen. We didn't need to leave the balcony, but of course, we did. Shopping on 5th Ave., Live music ranging from harp, mariachi bands, guitar, rock, R & B. Dining all over Playa and Tulum. We had Mexican, Thai, Italian, Steakhouse etc.... usually with margs and wine. I ate and drank so much, I will have to get back to the gym to burn it off. Thanks to Sally and Al we feel like we know our way around and even learned a little spanish. I know vino tinto (red wine), uno mas (one more), mucho gusto (nice to meet you). Just watch out for the overly friendly skeletons lol. Mucho gracious amigos! xo

Que bella foto ,mi amiga!
I just love this one Photo especially Sally. You are blessed with moments like this among 3 generations. ! I am so envious of that: generational love. I too love the part about the plant in the balcony and your mom ...and the maid out the balcony. lol :-D The one photo of Ava "Jumping for joy" really captures the very essence of your trip. Enjoy to the MAX and back. Big hugs and Salud!!! Wink wink>>> When you get back to Canada, I want to TREAT YOU. Your call when and where. xoxo

Hola Sally, I have been enjoying your updates.....where do you find all your energy to accomplish all that you do while on vacation? Lol We arrived late on Friday night and was talking to your Mom before I left and was hoping to get over yesterday to see her before she left but ran into a few hiccups on day one so didn't get an opportunity to see you guys. We are leaving playa tomorrow for a 2 week road trip with o Veracruz. Back to playa Feb. 10 until March 5 . When do you go back? Would like to check out the restaurant you are promoting, roof top bar and day spa. You didn't mention any names if these places? Looking forward to future blogs. Hopefully we can connect on this trip. Take care and enjoy!

Thank you Marilyn. It was so nice to have Mom along after this past year. She so deserved it and I am not sure she will unpack her bag since she's coming back next winter! :)
