I know it sounds so ridiculous right? Of all people, do I really need a vacation?
But I do.
When I travel independently I am constantly trying to figure out how to get to the next place, looking up what words I need to know, any details I need to know.
Making sure all my electronics are charged so I can blog about it. But the biggest difference is
I am always alone.
But Villa del Palmar is like a vacation for me. I have great friends Rease and Cailin here and I’ve met others. We go sight seeing, eat, and giggle over margaritas.
This is a vacation.
And after most of the group left Cailin, Rease and I hung around to do what people on vacation do.
Drink pina coladas.
I may not have been a fan of all-inclusives or tours before but when people plan my travels for me that is my vacation. I don’t have to worry about getting anywhere, people understanding my Spanish, or how I’ll get home.
All I need to do is show up. I like vacation.
Much thanks to Cailin and Suzanne for the photos and deleting the unflattering ones.
Disclosure: I was a guest of Villa del Palmar Loreto, they did not request that I write a favourable review, or drink far too many pina coladas with Rease and Cailin.
