It’s time to talk about my trip…

Ok ok, i’m a nerd for being excited to share this stuff with you guys.  But oh well.

Because I’m also trying to put them together to have a photo book printed off, this will be a great way for me to figure out how to lay them out so that they tell a story.

The island is so incredibly breath taking.  Both sides, the tourist side and the local side.  Although I totally fell in love with the locals.  Made some new friends, really just found myself relaxing and happy and having the time of my life.

DSC_0186 DSC_0181 DSC_0178We found some beautiful ruins.  Walking around them and taking tons of pictures was incredible.

Found a few beaches to fall in love with, for snorkeling, swimming, lounging… tons of beaches to choose from.  I spent time every single day in that ocean.  I sang a silly song at the top of my lungs to the ocean and the palm trees.  I danced and played in the surf late at night, I saw sea urchins as big as bushes under the sea.  I also stepped on one of those suckers… but that’s another story.


T and I had a blast all week.  I couldn’t have asked for a better person to travel with.  To share an adventure with.  I’ve never felt so lucky and happy and content.  It was truly, one of the best times of my life.  I was really upset to have to come home.  I’ve recovered from that upset-ness, but I still dream of the ocean.  I still wish, on a daily basis, that I could be sitting at my favorite beach, playing dice with a few of the amazing people I met while I was down there.

But I know… it’s started something.  An itch to travel more… to see more… to meet more amazing people.  I just can’t wait.
