I actually can't believe right now, but today is the first day of February. This year is going by too fast and I can't believe that about a little under a month ago, I was having the time of my life in CANCN with my boyfriend and his family! This vacation marks the first time I have left the country since coming here haha. I was extremely excited to the point where I did not sleep the night before our flight. (It also helps that the flight was at 5 am and we had to leave at 3:30 am) I just chose to stay up until then! Since it was my first time out of the country and going on a plane in a long time, I didn't know much about the rules and regulations. I actually ended up running into a few issues that were easily resolved. One issue was with my passport. My passport was set to expire March of this year and I never knew of the 6 month rule. After googling and some phone calls, I was relieved to hear that Mexico was one of the few countries that did not require the 6 month rule!! (phewww.. or else I don't know if my new passport would have come to me in time!)
|This was an amazing, but scary sight!|
We took two flights to get to Cancun. Our first one landed us in NJ. There we waited a couple hours for the 2nd flight which took us to Cancun.
When we finally arrived in Cancun, it was about 3 in the afternoon and we were exhausted! You would think sitting/sleeping on a plane is refreshing, but no, it was the complete opposite. However being in a new place definitely brought my energy levels right up.
Cancun was a completely new place for me. It was so tropical and relaxing especially when compared to back home for me where it was near 0 and freezing! The first thing I noticed there was the sun and all the palm trees! You don't see palm trees in New England! I also noticed the scent of Cancun.. The air was warm and it smelled so tropical.
On our vacation, we planned many a few things to do as well as a day or two of just rest/beach/exploring the hotel days! On one of the days, my boyfriend and I went swimming with dolphins! (keep in mind that I am terrified of water so my lifejacket was my best friend) We got to touch, high five, kiss, and swim with the dolphins. It was an amazing experience! The dolphins were really gentle and they looked like they were having lots of fun with us!
|Check out all these cool creatures!|
At the park, we also saw some exotic animals! Among those animals, the Coati was the coolest looking one! When I first saw the animal, it was crossing my path and freaked me out! I thought is was a raccoon with a tail! lol!
On our trip we also stopped by Chichen Itza! This place is known as one of the wonders of the world and I have to say after visiting it really is a wonder! I highly recommend it! There were lots of tourist there and it was quite exciting.
