Living in Canada gives you an option to travel to places you wouldn’t normally have access to living in London. When it came close to wrapping on a stressful project at work, my boyfriend and I started looking for places to go that were quick, easy and affordable. Although we initially wanted to go to Hawaii, it was just way too expensive and difficult to book. So, we decided to follow suit with the rest of the east coast and take a trip to Mexico!
The holiday was an all inclusive package at a 5 star resort. It’s amazing what deals you can find online! The only options we were faced with each day was if we wanted to go to the pool or beach, and which restaurant to eat at. This isn’t my usual holiday, I am normally planning, organizing and moving around a lot. When I travelled to Cuba a year before, I visited 4 different locations, with no internet to navigate and speaking broken Spanish to get around. I listened to a Spanish podcast every morning to help me communicate with the locals, but it still didn’t stop us from being scammed every so often. I felt like during my stay in Cuba I was always on edge, or stressed out. So, having a holiday where it was 100% relaxation was important to me.
