And it begins


After a couple of delays at the Wichita and Houston airports, Hayley and I landed safely and soundly in Mexico, ready to soak up the sun and consume large amounts of free resort buffet food.

Despite Hayley’s and my strong desire to go on the Amazing Race – and strong belief that we could win – neither of us have ever traveled internationlly before. It was an experience to go through customs and its stringent examination to ensure we were who we said we were. We then picked up our bags and found our travel club’s prearranged transportation waiting and ready for us. No thinking or planning required on our part.

When we got to our room at the resort, there were a lovely pair of swans fashioned from towels watiing for us on the bed. They really were quite impressive. A little bit more impressive, however, was the view from our room. (Sadly, the Internet isn’t as impressive so the pictures will have to wait.)

Last night we had quite an experience – the entertaiment was a dancing review of Mamma Mia. I’ve never seen Mamma Mia before, but I think, thanks to Hayley, I have a general idea what was happening.

Today, Hayley and I are planning on relaxing by the pool, partking of resort buffet food, lying by the pool, walking on the beach (which is wickedly cold), and a Broadway dancing review.

On Saturday, Hayley and I are trying to decide between swimming with some dolphins and snorkeling. If you’ve done either, which would you recommend?

Cheers from Cabo!

    What a deal! Have a Margarita (or 2 or 33) for me.

    Highly recommend snorkeling over swimming with the dolphins. Not because either is better, but because of the lady I met on vacation one year who’d been seriously injured by the dolphins. Too many variables in that one. That aside, both activities are fantastic. If you snorkel, get a disposable underwater camera. They’re fun and you get more pics for your money than the photo your tour operator will try to sell you! Have fun… 🙂
