Every November for the last umpteen years, me and my best friend have gone to Puerto Vallarta. Two weeks ago I got back from that vacation. Yes it was over two weeks ago (it seems like an eternity has passed). I got back to Toronto and things at work were crazy (more on that later), so this is the first time I've had a chance to post. Up first… a rundown of all of the stuff that we did. Pictures will follow in a later post (or two).
So here is what we did…
- Wake up at 8:00.
- Drink coffee on the balcony until 9:00.
- Shower, then go to breakfast.
- Come back up to the room and get ready for the beach.
- Go to the beach and lay in the sun.
- When I get too hot, go for a swim.
- Eat lunch and have a cocktail or two on the beach
- Go back to the room at around 4:00.
- Shower, again.
- Have a nap.
- Get up at 5:45 and watch the sunset
- Go for dinner at about 7:30.
- Finish dinner and go for coffee.
- Leave the coffee shop at 10:30.
- Go to bed at midnight.
- Repeat for 13 days
That is all that me and my best friend did. That's it. Some may call it boring. I, on the other hand, call it the most relaxing thing that I could possibly do. There was ABSOLUTELY no stress (well except for the work thing) and that didn't bother me much. BTW: Margaritas help with an overactive mind.
Thirteen days of complete and total relaxation. We had deep talks, usually after a margarita. We talked with friends. We stared at the water and the sunset. All of the stress that I managed to accumulate over the year… gone in two weeks. I became a totally different person. I became human.
The only thing different and exciting this year was the fact that they are building a new pool for the hotel. Sitting on the balcony and watching the, obviously paid by the hour workers, was the most soothing, frustrating, and highly entertaining thing in the entire world. Apparently, I can be easily be amused.
Complete. Total. Relaxation.
Oh, did I mention I like margaritas?
