La playa, oh, la playa

Wish I could spend all my days in Playa del Carmen.


I could get used to a beachy-keen lifestyle.


But my favourite spot to swim? It wasn’t the beach but a giant freshwater cenote (sinkhole doesn’t sound nearly as romantic, does it?). Cenote Ikil was cold, full of fish and dripping with Lost-style vines. Add to that the fact that it was a reported 54 metres(!) deep and you’ve got the coolest, spookiest swimming hole in the Yucatan.


I’ve been back in Vancouver a few weeks now but I desperately want to head back to Mexico. Now.

My tangerine dress? It’s from Zara. My suitcase? It’s bulging full of ridiculously bulky sweaters and scarves.


Seriously, who goes to a place like this and buys big woolly things?

P.S. Add the Anthology on Facebook.

    How about posting your sister’s suitcase and admitting that you….

    Etrapar — You better believe it!

    Irina — …and admit that I am the worst packer ever? Or should I admit that I am the best sister ever for carting around everything she couldn’t fit in her own tiny suitcase?
