Mérida

merida1Back in november I traveled with my classmates to Mérida. It was a nice change of scenery even for just a few short days, but I had a blast between our exhausting days and crazy nights.
We visited Celestun, “a natural paradise” in the words of our guide. We rode boats in the lagoon and were supposed to see flamingos but they were like miles away from us and our boat got stuck when we tried to get closer. Then we spotted some alligators and it was… Well, let me put it like this: You’re in a boat with the boys (5 of them), now picture one of them trying to get a closer look from the edge of the boat and the rest of them joking around and trying to make him fall. Yeah, nerve-wracking and funny all at the same time!! Once we were done there we went back to the hotel and partied all night!merida4The next day we went to Chichen Itzá after having breakfast and trying to get the girls to wake up from their hangover. When we got there it was raining! We were all dying on the inside (not from the rain), but I did enjoyed the view and walk. After that we went to this cenote. I was so excited that I didn’t mind it was raining and still jumped in. I’m an adventurer at heart!! By the end of the day we pulled over in Valladolid to stretch and buy some food before we headed back to the hotel. Back in the hotel some of us partied, went back to the hotel, got scared in our room and went back to partying before thinking about going back into our room. It was so fun!!merida3merida2Finally, the last day we had conferences in the morning, a lunch break and a tour around town in a picturesque bus at night. It wasn’t really interesting, but I had so much fun!
There aren’t a lot of pictures from the trip because I was kind of busy making memories with my friends (or it was raining) but I’m glad I captured some of those moments 🙂

I hadn’t shared the pictures because I thought they were lost, but now they’re found.

Neutrals on the beach

On our trip to Veracruz we went to this beach hoping to get to the dunes and get some sun. None of those happened. It was windy, cloudy and cold, which you can’t actually tell since I took off my jacket and braved the cold for a good cause. Anyway, we need up chilling in the hammocks, eating shrimps and having a toast to celebrate my parents’ 26th anniversary! Good memories were made that day.

By the way, don’t forget to visit my sister’s blog to see her outfit post. We’re totally opposite poles, but I adore her!

All on board

boat4Earlier this month we went on our annual trip to Veracruz, and I say annual because it’s becoming some kind of tradition. Anyway, among all of the things we did this one was a favorite: visiting an old navy boat/museum. You may wonder what’s so special about it, right? Well, I’m not a boats person, but this one was a navy one, so of course I was excited to see what was on the inside, all those guns, bunk beds, showers, everything!boat2Turns out this boat was everything I hoped for and more! They had a dentist office and a very old surgery table, yeah they practiced small procedures in there. They had like a general store, pretty small showers and even a snakes exhibit. According to the guide, who is a retired sailor, there wasn’t enough room for all the 600+ members on board, but they managed.
Some parts of the boat were totally covered by water, which is still safe, but you can’t go beyond unless you wanna take a dive, but that’s not allowed. Besides that I had an amazing time! If someday you’re around and you like museums, go for it!boat1boat3

vdbHello there! Lately I’ve been trying to post more often, but inspiration is just not coming my way. Last weekend I got away for a day to a small town in the outskirts of the city and it was just what I needed! Warm weather, clear blue skies and sun baths. vdb3vdb1
I am definitely coming back to Valle de Bravo!!
Have a nice Wednesday, friends!vdb2
