Small town

About a month ago my family and I went on a quick trip to God knows where. It was a pretty small town and on our long way there we passed by some amazing rocks. Do you remember that scene in The Incredibles when Dash runs on water and there are some gigantic and amazing rocks/mountains? Well, they were something like that, but instead of being surrounded by water, they were surrounded by small towns and a two-way highway. I am usually amazed by the beauty of my surroundings (mostly nature) and even though my pictures are awful, I thought I’d share them with you.

Beach days (Part 3)

an4our hotel was a total surprise for us, there were signs all around with different animal species that lived in the jungle around the hotel. honestly, i though we were never going to see one of the many animals, but god, was i wrong.
there were these tiny animals named coatí, they were really pretty, but they also loved to sneak in the restaurants so there were nets to avoid their unexpected visits.
everyday on our way to breakfast, our room or to the beach we saw lots of these babes, and every single time i was mesmerized by them.an3 an5another species we saw were monkeys. my brother had told us there was a monkey jumping around the trees and hugging people, and of course my sister and i wanted to meet that monkey! so one day we were walking to the beach and there he was: jumping from tree to tree. my sister and i got close and an employee from the hotel told us that the monkey was very friendly, so we got closer. he just wouldn’t let us see him so as we were about to give up the monkey ran over to my sister, grabbed her by the leg and tried to bite her! it all happened so fast i didn’t know whether to laugh or seek for help.
it all ended up with a sad monkey making signs as he walked away from a french lady and us. it was really fun!

Beach days (Part 2)

xplor1so, after we went to akumal we went back to the hotel to take a quick shower and then head over to xplor, a themed water park. dad booked the fire experience for us, it consists on doing all the activities you can do when there’s daylight but at night which is pretty rad.
we got there when it was almost dark, which means no sun (thank god!) because i was super tanned from day 1 and it was mostly empty, also good because that meant no lines. we started with raft swimming, and i must say, my sister and i suck at it, we paddled backwards most of the time and we got a lot of help from a very nice guy who was laughing at us.
then we swam in a river with bats, the water was so cold i thought i was going to freeze. it was all fun until we reached some waterfalls that pulled you down so hard that it was difficult to swim the other way.
after that we went on a ride through the jungle in 4×4 mini cars where we saw fireflies and a few bats. we left the most exciting activity last: zip-lining. it was dark, but you could see park lit up with torches.
it was one of the best experiences and we all had so much fun. we had dinner there and then left to our hotel for a good night of sleep.xplor2

Beach days

akumal2akumal6after a long month working i deserved some vacations, and that’s exactly what i got! since all i wanted was to sit back and relax my camera stayed in my bag most of the time.
we went to cancun and the weather was just perfect. the first day we stayed at the hotel enjoying the beach, but the second one we went to akumal, a small beach 30 minutes away from our hotel. i must say it was a bit crowded, so finding a place to sit in the shadow was hard. after all we did found a spot under a palm tree. we got to enjoy the ocean’s clear water and even saw some turtles and fish so it was all worth it.


Catching up

nt1nt4hello there! it’s been forever but i’m back, so it means we get to catch up! i’ve taken so many pictures and gone to not so many places and i was dying to share with you guys, but now it’s time!
on august 9th was my brother’s birthday (happy birthday once again, dude!) so he organized a small road trip to do some mountain bicycle here. my sister invited three of her friends, and the rest of us were just family. we had an amazing time until my sister, her friends and i got ourselves into a 6km hike in the cold, it was exhausting and when we got to the car all we wanted to do was sit back and take a nap. in my opinion, it was all worth it because we got to see the most beautiful landscape i have ever seen. it was so peaceful up there… i wanted to stay forever.
