Paris: The Plan (How I Planned for a 10-Day Trip to Paris)

Paris: The Plan (How I Planned for a 10-Day Trip to Paris)

Paris—The Plan: Due to the last minute nature of the trip, I didn’t get to plan as thoroughly as I would have liked to for the Paris trip. My husband was going to London area for work (Richmond Hills to be exact), so we decided for me to tag along so that we can take a mini-vacation in Paris for 9.5 days. The trip wasn’t finalized until about a week or two before departure due to my husband’s work schedule,…

Weather in Paris–End of May to Beginning of June 2017

Weather in Paris–End of May to Beginning of June 2017

Weather: The forecast changed multiple times leading up to the trip, but it promised a heatwave, sunny skies, cloudy skies, thunderstorms, and showers for our 10 day stay in Paris. The first 4 days in Paris were unbearably hot and humid, with temperatures hovering in upper 80’s to low 90’s (in Fahrenheit). Coming from dry Southern California, my husband and I had a difficult time getting used to heat + humidity + lack of A/C throughout Paris. It also didn’t…

Initially, we planned to go to Cancun, but scrapped that idea and settled on Isla Mujeres after doing a lot of research. Isla Mujeres seemed to tick off all the things on our wish list: not too far, no visa requirement for a…

Vacationing in Isla Mujeres

Vacationing in Isla Mujeres

Reality: As it is usually the case, things didn’t pan out the way we had planned 100% of the time. It’s important to keep in mind that there are many things that are out of our control (i.e. weather, flight cancellations, etc.), and to try to make the best out of the situation. The weather was less than amicable on one of the days, but that was one of the most memorable and fun moments of our trip. Click on…

Weather in Isla Mujeres in December

Weather in Isla Mujeres in December

Weather in Isla Mujeres in December: Since our traveling time was limited to the first two weeks of December, we had to accept whatever weather was awaiting us. As I’ve mentioned in the planning section, I had succumbed to the ultra-anal voice in my head telling me to check the weather every chance I got prior to our departure. It’s my own fault for subjecting myself to such torture, but at least I was able to prepare myself somewhat for the…

Punta Sur in Isla Mujeres

Punta Sur in Isla Mujeres

Punta Sur: At the southern tip of the island, Punta Sur, or South Point, is home to the ruined temple of Ixchel, a Mayan Goddess. It is also the most eastern part of Mexico, which means it is the first place in Mexico to get greeted by sunlight each day. At the cliffs, one can view the beautiful waters and waves. There is a small sculpture garden (requires an entrance fee) with a pathway that leads to the temple ruins…
