This blog was written by my acro yoga base and best friend. She will be sharing some of our travel stories and adventures in this section.
Thanks for reading us!
This is just a small part of my last adventure. I’m slowing going to keep sharing. Because I believe it’s important to share unexpected adventures, feelings, and thoughts on new places, especially places that have a not so positive perception to many.
How do you explain something to others that still seems unreal to yourself, and you actually experienced it firsthand, and have proof to share.
Traveling has always been in my blood. Growing up in a very small town going to the “city” occasionally was an excitement, something to look forward too. Fast forward to the last few years and I can’t seem to sit still. The chance to travel, I’m ready to go, no matter the distance, because it feels good on my soul.
I first traveled to Tulum 3 years ago. A trip that was unexpected in itself, for many reasons, yet still happened. It was the first time in years to go on vacation to COMPLETELY unplug with no responsibility but to lay on the beach. It was magical. Truly. And I don’t use words like that lightly. The beach, the water, the sun, and something different in the air. The sense to breathe and let go, heal and recharge life’s batteries. I was in a different place in my life for that first trip and it changed me for the better.
One trip to tulum, we had a driver share about a place called Holbox. That we should go. It was worth the drive and travel to get there. So we talked a few times about it and decided one day we needed go. I didn’t expect that day to come as soon as it did. But we planned it, and went. And again, my life was changed.
They say it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey. This is probably the truest statement when it comes to traveling to holbox.
It’s a flight or two to Cancun, it’s a 2 hour van ride through the beautiful jungle to a small town called Chiquilá. Once arriving there you catch a 20-30 minute ferry ride to Holbox where you are greeted with golf carts, ATV’s and bicycles, all to take you to your destination. You see, the roads aren’t paved in Holbox. They are dirt roads and they have no intentions of changing this. It’s the best! A true sign of rest and relaxation in my mind. No cars to honk the horn, to cut you off or tailgate you.
This place from the moment you step off the ferry changes you. It opens your eyes, makes you aware of all of your senses. And it prepares you for what the island has to offer if you sit back, unplug and listen to your body.
I’m looking forward to sharing more, and how traveling with someone who enjoys adventures with you makes things even better
