August firsts

We just got back from our Cancun vacation just a few days ago. It's an absolutely beautiful place, and there is so much to do there. It was a memorable trip for me because it was the first time I...

  • went parasailing.
  • touched (and kissed) a dolphin.
  • saw and played on a white sand beach.
  • went in a submarine.
  • saw stingrays and sea turtles.
  • went to Mexico.
  • heard a Michael Jackson song (yes, shame on me).
  • tasted saltwater.
  • set foot in the ocean.
  • went to a restaurant where there were no prices on the menu.
  • stayed at an all-inclusive hotel (which explains the previous statement).
  • drank a Shirley Temple (and lots of them, might I add).
  • sat under a beach umbrella.
  • held a baby sea turtle (and released it into the ocean).
  • swam with a life jacket on.
  • went to a water theme park outside the U.S.
  • tried a habanero pepper salsa (bad decision).
  • and rode the Mexican public bus.
 Did you travel anywhere this summer? How was it?

Oh...how wonderful! I was just in that part of the world last February (further south in Playa del Carmen) and it was indeed gorgeous! Not to mention all that food and drinks..we stayed in an all inclusive resort as well. Did you guys see the Mayan ruins?

@Odessa - Yes! We did! It was so hot but definitely worth it!
