Weekend Getaway: Viva La Mexico!

What better way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo weekend than in the Country it’s known for?! So we thought. Unfortunately they do not celebrate this American Holiday so my friend and I brought the celebration with us! That’s right……We celebrated in Mexico and WOW was it amazing and beautiful. I always hear about everyone going to Cancun and I’ve seen amazing pictures but I wanted something a little different. So, I called up one of my linesisters and we were on our way to Tulum, Mexico.

I’m going to let the pictures speak for this post but a little back story. I did a little research on my way there due to Tulum being about an hour away taking the cheapest route which was the ADO bus. The total cost in pesos for 2 one way was about 483 pesos. About 12 dollars each. I would recommend the super shuttle for $30. (It’s faster).

We stayed at an all inclusive resort that was absolutely stunning. I would definitely recommend staying there and I would stay there again. El Dorado seaside Resorts by Karismo. They had a ton of amenities and their food was amazing! The views were amazing as well!

We had a full list of things for our short time there and made sure to do all of them!

first stop: Tulum Mayan ruins

second stop: Cenotes Casa Tortuga Tulum

of course we had to end with a Photoshoot..

But the most rewarding part was the Massages on the beach! 🤗

Overall, this was by far one of my top 5 places to visit again!

Live. Love. Travel

Brunching in NY: Sweet Chick “Chicken and waffles”

Ever just want to travel to a location for the food? That’s exactly how I felt when planning a trip to NY and looking at some of the restaurants in the city. For weeks I have been excited to try the most Delicious-looking desserts and restaurants when a Friend and I decided to plan a trip. I had seen a ton of Instagram posts of these delicious brunch spots but this one in particular got my attention. My favorite brunch meal is Chicken and waffles sooo of course I had to try it!

The vibe was really nice and welcoming. A Rustic cabin look with a Brooklyn feel. Relaxed ambiance feel from the staff and a close seating arrangement. Definitely felt the local vibe of Brooklyn but also broke away from the busy city.

Now to the GOOD STUFF! The presentation of food was definitely a plus. The wait was a little long but it was worth it. The food came out looking delicious and neatly placed on the plate. The music was a bit loud but it was mixed playlist which gave it an upbeat social atmosphere. The drinks weren’t the best but that’s not what it’s known for.

It was on the corner of Bedford which is a great location for it. They had a great coffee shop next door if you wanted to wait until it opened up. A lot of surrounding restaurants and cafes in case you come right when it opens which I would recommend. we showed up at 945am with no line but then went at 1005am and it was completely packed with one table left. Luckily we got it! There was also a line outside. #THEWORST

The food was absolutely amazing! The chicken was extremely good. Plus we got cool stickers and post cards! Definitely recommend it!

#Yummmmmmm

30 before 30 Bucketlist! 

30 by 30!!! Yup! I am going to give it a go. When I moved to South Korea in 2016, it was the BEST decision that I have ever made by far! I instantly fell in love with the culture, the food, activities, and just the people. Not to mention the convenience of traveling to different locations. I mean I have had a blast with traveling. I initially joined the military to travel and so the fact that I was able to hop on a 16 hour plane ride and live in a foreign country for a year for work has been AMAZING!

By my 26th birthday, I will have traveled to 11 countries in just ONE YEAR! I mean with a full time job, not traveling for more than 5 days in one location, and utilizing my resources, I must say that’s one hell of a year! Sooo, with that being said I will update this periodically when I get to a new country or able to add a new country to my list!
