TULUM RUINS

Travel

Beautiful ancient ruins in Tulum

Hey bloggity friends!

Got a new vlog for you, and this time we checked out some Mayan Ruins in Tulum. These were so gorgeous and I loveddddd how we had the whole place to ourself! There is nothing worse (imo) than going sight seeing in a huge crowd of tourists. So pro tip, if you are planning a visit to the Tulum Ruins you can pay more (80 pesos during regular hours, 240 pesos before/after regular hours) to go inside the ruins BEFORE or AFTER hours and it’s TOTALLY worth it!

Anyways, sitting here in my favourite coffee shop in Tulum writing to you. The wifi in our AirBnb is a bit slow and it takes about 3 hours to upload there whereas here in takes 10 minutes. Plus I get to consume even MORE caffeine. Win win if you ask me.

One thing that has been a challenge throughout these last few months traveling is eating vegetarian/vegan. I like to try and have 80% of my diet be plant based. But I’ve been finding in places like Costa Rica and Mexico there are limited options plant-based protein options. Considering making a video on this and how I am managing it soon. If you are interested in something like that, feel free to slide on into my dms and lmk.

Just rented a car for some adventuring that is going down this weekend, so I’m going to go meet up with Troy now to get us some wheeeels!

Talk soon!

SOME LIFE CHALLENGES

Lifestyle

A little life update

Turns out, being in a Canadian/American relationship isn’t the easiest thing ever. There are some challenges that are a bit more out of my control than I’d like to admit.

Today’s video covers my relationship, why I am always traveling, marriage… all the real for realz stuff.

This video is also a bit different than most of the vlogs I’ve been filming lately. Feels like it has been a while since we’ve just sat and chatted, so wanted to try this new style of video so we can hopefully get to know eachother better :). It can be a wee bit hard to connect when I am out and about adventuring and vlogging!

So yeah, if you liked this style of video please leave a comment and let me know!

BEACH DAY IN TULUM

Lifestyle

Made it to the beach!

HOW GORGEOUS IS TULUM?

I feel like they’ve figured out my aesthetic (and every other millennial’s.) Cute, pretend rustic, healthy organic food, and mezcal cocktails up the ying yang. This is the place to be in Mexico, that is for damn sure.

Made the worlds shortest vlog the other day at the beach, mostly because we were just getting festive all day long and not doing too much of anything. Recorded anyways, because I want to share it all. 🙂

One thing that kind of sucks rn in Tulum is the mass amounts of seaweed washing in. The seaweed has turned the normally crystal clear water dark red. It kind of looks like blood and low key creeps me out. Also I tried to swim in it (cuz im desperate like that) and the bugs were ABUNDANT so I bailed on that real quick.

But other than the bugged up seaweeded up water, was V impressed with the beach in Tulum.

This was our first day visiting it as our Airbnb is about a 20 min cab ride from the area. (more on this later.)

Anyways, hope you enjoyed today’s vlog!

FIRST TULUM VLOG

Travel

Finally, a full Tulum vlog!

Yayyyy here it is! First vlog from Tulum.

Having the best time here so far and eating as many tacos as I can stuff in my face without getting sick. For real though….

Mexican tacos IN MEXICO are next level amazing. And finally some actual spice! Sometimes Mexican restaurants in Canada/United States have “Canadian” or “American” salsas, that go easy on the heat. I WANT ALL THE SPICE.

all of it.

SO yeah. Ya girl is a happy camper.

Next vlog will show off more of actual Tulum, we’ll be going to the beach and hanging there! Stay tuned 🙂

FLYING ON NO SLEEP

Lifestyle

Ok so turns out, pulling an all-nighter at age 27 is NOT THE SAME as pulling an all-nighter at 20. This is something new I discovered this week. When I, being the smarty pants I am, decided to fly to Tulum on no sleep (like, literally didn’t sleep the entire night) it was the roughest day I’ve had in a while.

At age 20 when I would not sleep one night, the next day I just wouldn’t feel so great. At 27, you can SEE IT IN MY FACE. Everything hurt, I looked wrong (yes, just wrong) and I think I am fighting a cold because of it.

Oh the joys of getting older.

Regardless of my sleep deprivation, I decided to vlog my trip from Vancouver –> Tulum anyways. And yeah… the video above is what we got lol!

Plus I added in a little AirBnb tour from Tulum, so you can see where we are staying. There will be more in upcoming vlogs, I was pretty out of it this entire video so it wasn’t exactly the most organized lol!

Anyways, hope you enjoyed the vlog!
