I’ll Drink to That!

I’ll Drink to That!

I need a drink! You see, I just received an offer on my house and, while I’m not sure if I’ll accept it yet, it’s got me, well, scared to death. Why am I selling my house? I described it in “Out With the Old, In With the Older,” in which I told you about selling my...

Adios Mexico

I wake up early this morning; earlier than I need to. As my flight from Cancun departs at 12:15pm, I’ve calculated that, if I leave the hotel by 8:15am, I’ll have time to stop at Turtle Bay Bakery to grab a cup of coffee and a pastry before driving the...

Today I have a plan; to spend quality time with the beach. It’s the first day that I don’t set an alarm. Unfortunately, the construction workers did set an alarm and, by 8:20am, there’s pounding and my bed is vibrating, and not in a good way. This does not...

We awake early this morning (well, early for Stewart and Chucho on a Sunday) and hit the road by about 9:00am. Today Chucho is driving us about an hour away to go to the ruins at Uxmal, as well as the nearby chocolate museum (it might be the best day ever!). After...

Child’s Play

I’m here! And I need a shower! I arrive only a half-hour late. They gave us our forms for customs and immigration to complete on the plane and, like any good traveler, I brought a pen with me knowing there would be forms to fill-out, many did not. I could have...
Weighing In

Weighing In

Hola mi amigos! Como está? Tonight’s the night I head to Cancun via Dallas and Ft. Lauderdale, FL. I’ve spent the day packing everything just so, as I’m flying Spirit Airlines and their rules are a bit different from most U.S. airlines. If you want...
