Happy friday, friends! How was your week? Ours was pretty good. The weather has been warming up a bit, but otherwise still super nice. I've been getting out more (HOORAY!) and thing are just overall working out pretty well. I'm dreaming about going back to Mexico--- I'm quite certain we will again this year, but in the meantime, here are the last bits of our Mexico trip for you guys :) You can see the first few days of our Tulum trip HERE. And our entire magical trip to Mexico HERE. And of course, I'll try to link as much as possible!
coconuts in sunshine, is there anything better? No. I know I already said this, but it's a rule that Alex and I will never ever live somewhere where there are no coconuts. Tropical fruits are such a staple in our lives. I mean, the last bbq with friends had plantains and coconuts on the table, haha!
So I already told you guys about our favorite Mexico resort--- well, the owner also owns a vegan taco truck! That weird looking dish in the middle was complete MAGIC. It was a plaintain with some sort of vegan cream + syrup. It tasted like my childhood: waffles + cream. We enjoyed the tacos, but LOVED the plantain.
We walked around a lot. We always enjoy renting a car when we travel so we can go to and fro as we please-- but we did spend a good amount of time just exploring by foot. So many pretty things to look at.
As mentioned, we really didn't go to the beach. I think this was the only bit of beach time we really did. And I was mostly in the shade :)
I had heard about Restaurare the first time we went to Tulum, but figured it would be some weird vegan joint. Don't ask me why, I just assumed. But this time around a few people suggested it-- and we listened. And we were so happy we did. It was really good!
mayan curry. nom.
We also found and tried this new to us Indian place, Shiva Tulum. It wasn't there the first time we went. I guess they opened just a few months later. The vibe was good, the service was good, the food was okay, I just wanted it spiced up a notch. But it was a really good dinner experience. I thought it was pretty rad and coincidental to find myself eating here on the eve of Holi :)
My handsome man in my scarf. I've decided he can pull off anything as long as he has his beard ;)
I know I said this, but I would have stayed longer if Marlowe was with us. No question about it. We were both sad to leave. The morning of our flight we headed into town for some easy food at Del Cielo. I got oats and gave the man my banana and a purple smoothie too :) We both left Tulum covered in lemongrass, sand, and sun.
I can't wait to get back there and get out and travel again in general. I do love our home, but man I love exploring too.
I hope you guys have a great weekend. Thanks for being here. Thanks for being rad. Thanks for (hopefully) not unfollowing me when you see me actually speak on snapchat. Thanks for everything. Happy friend, friends <3
