So while most of you are reading this post, I’ll be in a plane flying to Mexico. If you’re somewhere cold, I hope I’m not making you too envious.
We’ll be spending a week down there relaxing in the sun and exploring the area. I’ve never been to Mexico, but I’ve always wanted to go there. The flights are often cheaper than flying within BC and I hear their beer is cheaper than water. Plus I’m sure there is plenty to see and do. I’m really looking forward to it anyway.
It might seem like weird timing for a vacation since I just recently took time off for Christmas. We happened to score free accommodation though since my mom and step-dad will be renting a condo. Who can say no to free accommodation in Mexico without any kind of time share presentation? Count me in! It worked out that this coming week was the only week that worked for both me and my girlfriend.
I was really due for a vacation. The last time I flew anywhere exciting was Australia and that was nearly 3 years ago. That was because my boss at the time covered my flight as a bonus. Hmmm….maybe I’m kinda cheap about vacations.
