Incredible! That is the one word I would use to describe our “us” (no kids) vacation to Riviera Maya, Mexico. From the time we pulled out of our drive way until we arrived home seven days later, everything was smooth sailing. We flew through all the airport check-points and customs without them batting an eye at Jody’s medical supplies. Thankfully, everything arrived with us safely intact (unlike our honeymoon when his nebulizer broke from rough handling by the airport). The majority of our time this week was spent as lazy beach bums. I thought I’d share a little of our vacation with you through a few pictures (click on the photo to enlarge it).
Our awesome roof top balcony, complete with jacuzzi tub. We enjoyed sitting in this at night while gazing at the stars.
Below is one of my favorite pictures from the week (I love the lighting and the reflection). This is a restaurant on the resort overlooking one of the pools.
So happy to be doing what I love with the love of my life.
Dining at the Mexican restaurant (our favorite of all the ones we tried).
Playing Skip-Bo while Jody did his nebulizer treatments.
We attempted pictures on the beach with our tripod, but clearly the wind had another idea.
Those are a few of the 500+ photos from our trip. What a great week we had! While the rest, relaxation, and quality time were incredibly fantastic, I think my favorite part of the trip was that for one week we were able to forget about Cystic Fibrosis. We forgot about the stress and sickness of this past year, and that which may come in our future, and we lived in the present. It was
good great for the soul! Sickness or not, I highly recommend a trip like this, away from the craziness of life, to relax, refresh, rekindle and recharge; it’s an investment you’ll never regret.
