Just wanna have fun
Another breathless read from the gal from the frozen North who comes to tropical Playa del Carmen to do what she does best. Like mother like daughter? One wonders what your Mum was getting into when she was young!

Just wanna have fun
Yes Dave girls just wanna have fun. I'll have to keep a close eye on my mom - or is it the other way around? HUM? Always nice to hear from you Dave!

I never read blogs..,
But I read yours almost all the time! Through years of reading your blog, I started coming to Playa del Carmen last year with friends, coming back this winter for two weeks because I loved it so much! I met some amazing people, ATV’d through the jungle, caught up with the coolest animals (including the most amazing two monkeys hanging out outside my balcony), swam in ceynotes, scuba and snorkel in incredible locations, dolphins, motor bikes and meetings on the beach. What a wonderful, magical place you are in. I love your blog, you are a remarkable writer and I look forward to seeing this shared love of Playa through your clever, funny words! ¡que tengas un maravilloso día! ¡te lo mereces! (Have an amazing day, you deserve it)

I Never Read Blogs...
Thanks Derrick for the compliments - not sure I am deserving of it! (But keep it coming...HAHAHA). There's so much more to Playa that it takes years to explore. Like visiting the coastal sea towns like Puerto Morelos, Akumal and Tulum each in its own right magical and known for its own culture/things to do. You must get to the colorful town of Valladolid known for its ancient catherdrals and close to ancient Mayan ruins. Merida is beautiful as well. We spent a week on Isla Mujeres and it's breathtaking with its cliffs, turquoise waters and turtle/sea life conservation reserve. Enjoy yourself but I really don't think I have to tell you that!!! :)

One flew over Sal's cuckoo's nest
Two questions Sal. You in my culture would be termed "quite a handful. Are you sure Nurse Ratched is going to let you out next time? You have been re-committed have you not?

One flew over Sal's cuckoo's nest
Yes Dave I have been called that before. A handful, or in my recent birthday card from a friend "A force of nature". Hmm hope it's a compliment now that I think about it! Frankly I should be committed if I dare fly thru Newark again. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me! Always great to hear your take on things!

Hey Zully it is one of our favorite restaurants - steak house that has a prop rifle so Al was chasing off this handsome server of ours...Did I say handsome? Sorry Al. It was a wonderful getaway...

It isn't all fun and games...
That's a travel story that just kept getting better and better ;) Hope you eventually got your bag back, but I know that zombie-like feeling of just wanting to get home so badly that everything else pales into insignificance. I use the nickname Nurse Ratched a lot...it seems to suit so many people in customer service, who really really shouldn't be! Hope your blood pressure has calmed down by now :)

Took a few days for the old blood pressure to come down. The bag made it the next day with the tequila in it. When all else fails...apply tequila! :) Thanks for the comment!!!

You had me laughing so much
I don't know how I haven't read your blogs before, but I will. Your wry humor and incredible story-telling are amazing. This was a truly horrific travel event, and wow was it all too real. Great blog.

You had me laughing so much
You are far too kind. I appreciate it given the fabulous blogs generated every day by such talented writers! I guess everyone can relate to airline travel & its frustrations! Thank you!

Life lessons
As I read your blog, I realised how lovely (and necessary) it is to treat ourselves to a getaway or some downtime after a rough patch. I hope this catches on as 'a thing'. Thanks for making me drool with your food and drink descriptions...and I totally agree with you on the term 'foodie' - I really dislike it. I just refer to me and my kind as 'piggies' :)

Life lessons
I love to read about food too - I like to mention it so people know what choices are here and how cheaply you can eat. Glad you agree on the 'foodie' thing. Love the 'piggies' kind! Thanks for checking in!

Dancing in the rain
"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain." So glad you got those precious three days as a family, and good on you for grabbing life and carrying on with your adventures xx

Beautiful words
This post about your Dad made me sad, but happy too. Hope the new beginning goes smoothly for your Mum - I know so many changes so quickly can be overwhelming, but I find that when things need to happen, it's easier that they happen rapidly... as opposed to having too much time to ponder the changes. Thank you for sharing this with us, and I'm glad you got to resume your holiday with your family :)

Thank you RENanDREW for perspective thoughts on things. And there's nothing like family when times are tough. Thanks for the comment :)
