Final days in Paradise

  Day 9 & 10: Our last full day was spent relaxing, reading and drinking near our pool. We went to dinner at our favorite restaurant and indulged in our favorite desserts. On our last day we had time to enjoy a last breakfast then it was time to say our goodbye and head to the airport.

Our last picture!

  It was a perfect honeymoon and a trip we will never forget it. It was full of romance, relaxation, amazing food but most importantly; time for us to enjoy each other, especially before the crazy months ahead. It was everything I have every dreamed of and so much more. Thank you Travis for everything. I feel so lucky to have met you, had you in my life as a friend, and to now be married to you. 

  Here is to the next 60 years! To us. Cheers dahling. 

  XO, Mosie.

Honeymoon Day 8: Mayan ruins & Snorkeling

   Day 8: Travis and I were up very early to spend the day on a snorkeling adventure. We were able to snorkel in three different locations around Playa del Carmen. But first, we were able to make a quick stop at the Mayan Ruins in Tulum.

Enjoying our day together

  After a tour around the Mayan ruins we were on our way to our first snorkeling site a covered cenote...a.k.a A CAVE! Yes, all I could think about was what was swimming under me, bats, getting stuck in a crevice and the movie Sanctum. You know what I am talking about if you have seen it. I was definitely out of my element, but jump in anyways (literally). There were some interesting moments where we had to swim alone because the space was so tight and when we needed light because it was so dark. But I made it and definitely overcame yet another fear. Not to mention, my husband, Travis was so good and was always holding my hand. 

Isn't that just scary to look at?!

  The next location was the ocean! Now we are talking. This was much more my style. The water was warm, it was open and we were able to swim with sea turtles! At this stop we spent about an hour out in water and saw an octopus, lobster, a sting ray, and lots of fish. I really enjoyed this part of the day.

  Our final stop was a brackish (both fresh and salt water) natural aqaurium. That is what gives the water the weird texture, like oil and water mixing. Here we found some HUGE and interesting fish.  It was the perfect end to a very fun and adventurous day!

Honeymoon Day 6 & 7

  Day 6: Ok, I am getting to the end of the honeymoon. Sorry these posts are becoming a bit monotonous. I promise they are almost done, so please hang in there with me. Yet again, days 6 and 7 of the honeymoon were pretty lazy. We woke up ate a huge breakfast and biked to the beach again for some reading, chatting, drinks and lunch. 

 The most comfortable beach chairs in the world!

Nice view.


 How cute is he in my fedora?

  Often days we would come back to our villa to hang out and relax just the two of us before our dinner reservations. We quickly came up with 'Tufte happy hour' as Travis would mix and make some drinks for us. Here I caught a funny moment when he walked out, tripped and spilled a bit. He always makes me laugh, especially those faces.

 Cheers dahhling

Off to dinner reservations!

  Day 7: Started with another HUGE breakfast! Imagine that. Then we hit the beach. Again, imagine that. What was fun about today was the boat ride. Who does not love being in a boat?! The resort is built on and around a series of mangroves. Another way to the beach, besides the golf cart and bikes is a boat ride. If you are adventurous and seriously wealthy, you can choose to have a private dinner aboard the boat. I was dreaming about this until Travis told me the price. 800 bucks! Ok, maybe next time. (And by next time I mean probably never)

Our private in villa BBQ!

  Our dinner on night 7 was probably one of our favorites. Travis really surprised me here! He set up this amazing in villa private BBQ for just us. We had a waiter and a cook set up and cook right outside for us. We started with incredible chips, guacamole and Mexican salsa. Then we had grilled corn, lobster and fish. Then our main course was steak and rice. Finally we finished with Delicious chocolate truffles. Needless to say, both T and I were in so much pain. I have never been to stuffed in my entire life. But what a night! One I will always remember. Thank you Travis.
