Cancun, Mexico

Hello loves ♡ !

My family and I took a relaxing trip to Cancun, Mexico.

CaptureIt’s located on the very east on Mexico, actually quite close to the border. Although there have been talk of travels to Mexico being quite dangerous, I tend to want to turn a blind eye to gossip like this, just because it’s ( from my experience ), just paranoia from parents and other adults. So I did a bit of research. From this, all I prepared myself for was to hold a tight grip on my bag that I will have on me, and never leaving my camera from my sight. But even then, that’s something I do even in the states.

I believe that people that are truly scared of something bad happening to them while in another country, are just that. Scared. And I think that people are just scared because they’re worried. Because they just want a fun and lovely trip in another country, but just in case something were to happen when they’re not in the town that they’ve lived in for years… Of course that’s terrifying. The thought of being lost and alone in another country that you’re not familiar with? A country that you barely speak the language of? That’s terrifying.

But my trip was beautiful. Absolutely beautiful, relaxing, and some of the happiest days I’ve had in a long time. We stayed at the Moon Palace “Sunrise” Resort. We did a bunch of excursions, such as jet skiing, snorkeling, zip-lining, and ATVing, which was so much fun. I wish I had a GoPro or a waterproof pouch for my phone so I could’ve taken pictures of the ocean and rain that I had to endure.

I’m trying to get myself to take more pictures for memories, but I am one of the worst people in the world on taking pictures of what I’m doing, where I’m at, and myself. With my new S6, I have such a great portable camera, which was so much easier than bringing my Canon around, mainly because it’s a lot bulkier than my phone.

I am so glad I could have experienced the things that I did. It was my first time zip-lining. I finally mustered the courage to conquer and attack my fear of heights and go, but I’m still terrified of heights. But zip-lining was my favorite part of the entire trip, because it was a bit of a thrill with all the fun of rain and wind in your face. I also got to drive an ATV for the first time [ my family and I obviously don’t do much intensive stuff like this ], but my sister and I convinced them to let us do some of the stuff we’ve been dying to try out. Even with pouring rain in your face, driving an ATV is just fun in general. The fear of tipping over , but never slowing down, is strangely addicting.

This was my first vacation of the summer, mainly because I’m working this year. I’m getting to visit Las Vegas and San Jose in the next month, so make sure to follow and check back soon!
