View From The Hotel Across The Grounds At Zöetry Paraiso De La Bonita, Riviera Maya, Mexico

Mexico: Quintana Roo – Zöetry Paraiso de la Bonita

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.

Amazing Falafel Plate - Chaya And Cacao, Isla Mujeres, Quintana Roo, Mexico

Mexico: Quintana Roo – Chaya and Cacao

We had checked out the Happy Cow app to find a vegan restaurant on Isla Mujeres and after reading the reviews of the limited options we settled for Chaya and Cacao. It was very easy to find - after all this is a very small Island. The restaurant is tiny - so blink and you might miss it.

More Sculptures - Punta Sur, Isla Mujeres, Quintana Roo, Mexico

Mexico: Quintana Roo – Isla Mujeres

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.

Germany: Neuschwanstein & Hohenschwangau Castles

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.

Half Dome - Yosemite National Park, California

California: Yosemite National Park

We spent two excellent days exploring the magnificent Yosemite National Park. With two children in tow we focused our time in the valley admiring the granite peaks, the Merced river and the splendid waterfalls. We even got to try our hand at painting in water colors.
