Mexico: Quintana Roo – Zöetry Paraiso de la Bonita

April 25, 2019 10:48am
As we have matured in years (a.k.a. got old) our taste for the type of vacation we take has developed, particularly as we now travel without the worry of having children in tow. Our preference now is for a more independent style of travel. We look to make our money go further (so we can travel more) by trying to avoid spending money on the luxuries, particularly when it comes to hotels and food. That said, our recent jaunt down to Mexico’s Riviera Maya was spent at Zoetry Paraiso de la Bonita, a top-notch, all-inclusive resort.

Mexico: Quintana Roo – Isla Mujeres

April 19, 2019 10:53am
After several days of perfect weather we awoke to a cloudy and blustery morning, that threatened rain. It was not cold so we were still full of joy for the day ahead. Our destination was the small island of Isla Mujeres, a little over 10 miles off the Yucatan coast from Cancún. The Island itself is only four miles long and about 1/2 a mile wide - yes it is tiny but still is home to 12,000 people.

Mexico: Quintana Roo; Tulum – Succulenta (Eatery Review)

April 16, 2019 2:26pm
I had thought that with its New Age reputation that Tulum would be bristling with vegan restaurants but when we checked out our trusted vegan guide, Happy Cow, we were a little surprised to see how few options there were. So, it didn't take us too long to opt for Succulenta. Beware there are better options - see review on La Hoja Verde.

Germany: Neuschwanstein & Hohenschwangau Castles

April 11, 2019 4:56pm
There are only a few movies that really stuck in my memories when I was a child, one of which was "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang", the Disney movie in which the magical car flew over the most amazing castle. This was pre-CGI (the movie was made in 1958) so I knew the castle had to be real. It was many years later as an adult I discovered the name of the castle was Neuschwanstein and that it was located in Germany's Bavaria region.
