I am officially on a count down to Peter and my vacation to Mexico in February. We leave on February 5. I know it’s early, but since it’s less than a month before we leave, I am getting so excited. It will be the first “real” vacation that we have had together. Sure, we have gone camping and taken road trips to different places, but Peter and I have never traveled on a plane together. In fact, the last time Peter was on a commercial jet was when he was 2. He doesn’t even remember it. He has been on smaller Cessnas and gliders when we were in Air Cadets, but nothing bigger. I am a terrible flyer as I get nervous and scared of air sickness. So I have to admit that I am a little apprehensive at how Peter will do while flying. He insists he will be fine, but I’m scared he’ll get sick or something. Ugh, I don’t even know why it crosses my mind, but I blame it on my emetophobia. I just have to get through two 4 hour flights there and back and it will be a blissful and wonderful vacation.
The reason we are going to Mexico is because Peter’s best man from our wedding is getting married to his long time girlfriend. It will be a beautiful wedding on the beach. We will be staying at the Riu Palace in Cabo San Lucas. It is a 5-star all inclusive resort. (My first all inclusive!!) The resort has a beautiful view of the ocean and all the guacamole I can eat. What more can I ask for?! I don’t plan on doing any of the extra activities. I don’t want to go scuba diving, or snorkeling or para-sailing or anything like that. The only extra thing I may want to do is go into the local town for a little shopping, but only as long as we go as a group. Honestly, all I want to do when we are there is sit on the beach in my swimsuit with a drink in my hand and my cross stitch in the other. I’ll put a little music in my ears and I’ll be all set. It sounds so relaxing. I just can’t wait. The only obligation I have is to attend the wedding and any wedding related things we have to do. It will be bliss.
I started pre-tanning a couple weeks ago and I will continue to go up until we leave. I burn so easily and with the hot sun in Mexico, I can’t be too careful. The last time I was in Mexico was in 2007, while on a cruise, and within the first half an hour out in the sun, I was burned to a crisp. (Side note: I was a dumb-ass and forgot to put on sunscreen Duh.) It some-what ruined the trip for me. I am NOT letting that happen again. With my base “tan” and my SPF 110 sunscreen, hopefully I won’t burn. Who knows, maybe I might actually tan!! That would be something. Ha.
So anyway, the count down has officially begun!! Have any of you been to an all inclusive resort before? Do you have any tips for me?!
