hola!! sorry ive been MIA for a while because ive been busy hustling night and day baking selling french macarons (click here!!!)
my friend tingting and i also went on a trip to mexico 2 weeks ago, so next a few posts will be on our trip to mexico. i took 6,586 pictures throughout our entire trip. its taking me forever to edit them because the weather was terrible, im trying to photoshop some sunshine in so you guys dont feel depressed looking at my pictures.
before i start, i just wanna thank tingting (she single ready to mingle 🙂)) for going on such trip with me, down for anything: hunting for the good food that never existed, ready to go under any bad weather and dangerous road conditions, taking care of me, hearing me complaining about the bad weather day and night, probably sick of watching me running naked in our room for 6 days or jus seeing me for 6 days 24/7 in general, calling room services and doing all the talking for me cuz i hate talking to strangers. one of the hardest thing to find in life is a friend that you can travel together. most times friendships break at the end of the trip and im speaking from experiences. a true friend that can pack up and go on adventures with you anytime to anywhere is priceless. ❤
we chose mexico not only because we wanted go somewhere tropical, its gotta amazing culture and history.
although the plane ride was like a roller coaster, we did arrive to cancun on time and picked up our luggages after they were sniffed by police dogs. i reserved one rental car on expedia.com with thrifty car rental one week before the trip. their counter was right outside the gate and they drove us to the thrifty location to get our car. as soon as you get on the van, there are two $5 bill sign that says ‘tips’ right in front of your face. tipping starts from here.
its illegal to drive in mexico without liability, so we purchased liability and the lowest damage coverage just to be safe. we got a standard sized car because their cars are pretty crappy so we didnt wanna risk the economical ones. safety first. everyone drives a volkswagen here since they are made in mexico?
we were staying at the ritz carlton in cancun. the road from the airport to our hotel was an easy drive. signs and directions were super clear, we got to our hotel no problem.
my friends charles and erica happened to be in cancun at the same time so we decided to meet up for dinner and visit chichen itza together the second day.
charles and erica had been to mexico for 5 days already when we got there. they were super sick with mexican food and tacos in particular. they wanted to try this Argentinian Steakhouse that someone recommended.
we werent really impressed by Cambalache, but the service was great. maybe choosing to eat steaks in mexico was a bad idea to start with.
Blvd. Kukulcan Km. 9 (Plaza Forum), Cancun 77500, Mexico
we decided to get a few more drinks and call it a night to get some good rest for chichen itza the 2nd day.
i have to say that mexicans are the true hustlers. they try to sell you stuff and keep you entertained any second. true professionals. this lady was trying to sell us tequila shots. after the 20 attempts, we finally decided to buy her tequila shots. she would feed you the shot then after you took the shot, she would spin your head, squeeze and shake you boobs/nipple (if you were a guy), then shake your butt. she was super aggressive, couldnt stop her from what she does. i have to say $5 was well worth it after all that.
this is all for our first night in cancun. next up: chichen itza, one of the world’s 7 wonders, and city of valladolid
