The Great Escape: Months 101 + 102 + 103 thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’ve wrapped up blogging the fourth quarter of 2019, of which this is a huge roundup. What a weird time to look back on. These first three months after losing my mom were, largely, a fog. I guess much of the year was. As the world transitioned from fall into winter, I started…

A Girlfriend Getaway to The Island of Women Part II thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’m recapping my travels in 2019, including this trip to Mexico in November. We slept in a giant seashell. We rang in thirty with a mermaid-themed rager. We went under the sea to an underwater museum. We drank like fish at a beach club. And the trip wasn’t over, not just yet. We…

I personally spent the final year of…

What It’s Like to Stay at the World Famous Seashell House in Isla Mujeres thumbnail

Where we’re at: I’m recapping my travels in 2019, including this trip to Mexico in November. I’ve quipped before that I’m pretty sure my birth stone is a seashell. I’ve made a pilgrimage to America’s roadside mermaid show in Florida, I went to actual mermaid school in the Philippines, I’ve attended several mermaid parades in New…

The Wanderland Guide to Downtown Cancun thumbnail

Where we’re at: Here, I’m recapping my travels in 2019, including this trip to Mexico in November. It’s no secret that while Cancun is one of the most popular resort destinations in Mexico, it’s one that independent travelers tend to turn their nose at while heading further afield to Tulum, Isla Holbox, and other, chicer destinations…
