Chichen Itza

A throwback to the high school days when our History class teacher would tackle about this absolutely outstanding Mayan wonder, Chichen Itza. I remember only seeing a photo of this in black and white in our history book. When I saw this in flesh, I was in awe and amazed at its beauty and its rich culture. It was a major pinch me moment 'cos I never thought I would be able to see this in person. It made me nostalgic for my high school days. I even posted a photo of this on Facebook and I tagged my History class teacher. This was the second part of our tour and despite the scorching heat, endless sweat dripping down, everyone was so eager to hear the history of this outstanding Mayan creations. I will never forget this experience and hopefully, I will be able to visit this place again soon.

Ik Kil Cenote

On my second day in Tulum, Mexico, I booked a tour and the first destination was at this beautiful paradise, Ik Kil Cenote in the Yucatan area. I was out of words when I saw this cenote. Indeed, seeing this in person made my heart skip a beat as it was such a surreal environment filled with lush greeneries, cold water and that warm summer sunlight beaming from above. Prior to my visit, I haven't done a thorough research on which places I should be exploring. As I was browsing through the internet, Ik Kil Cenote popped up and the level of interest I have for this place was at high. Seeing this magical place in person made me even more thankful for my decision of booking this solo trip to Mexico. I want the photos to do the talking but they don't even give justice on showing how truly mystical this place is. Already looking forward to my next comeback.

Will be sharing more of my Tulum, Mexico trip so stay tuned my friends.

Tulum, Mexico Closet

What a joy it has been curating this closet. I don't know about you but I enjoy packing so much. From folding clothes, debating what outfit to pair with my shoes, to packing toiletries and what not, to squeezing in clothes so everything will fit in the luggage, that just makes me so excited for an upcoming trip. I just love organizing in general. Also, got my new luggage from Away and I had it monogrammed as well. Amazed how there are so many things that I can put inside my luggage. It's so easy to work around too. If you are interested in saving $20 for your purchase, click this link here:

Pretty much for this trip, a huge percentage of what I packed are super comfy clothes. The basics for the beach such as swim shorts, t-shirts, and sandals. I came prepared to bare with humidity. I am so sad that summer is over. The temperatures started to drop and I am not yet ready for layers and layers of clothing. Who else is with me? Anyhooo, if you are interested in shopping some of the items that I packed or something similar, below is a direct shopping link for them. Hope you enjoyed your summer as much as I did.

What I'm Packing: Escape to Tulum, Mexico

Back to when I took a trip to Tulum, Mexico and it was an absolute smart idea. Here are some of the items that I packed during my vacation. I've discovered this new sunscreen from Coola and it smells so good. And also, the backpack that I brought has a lot of space in it too. But sadly, the pair of aviators from Quay, I left it in the tour bus and couldn't find it anymore.

Royal Caribbean Harmony of The Seas

A few months back, my family took a vacation and decided to go on a cruise again since we had a wonderful time last year. This time, we went on the largest cruise ship in the world as of the year 2017, which is Royal Caribbean Harmony of The Seas. They are building a new one now and it's again said to be the biggest. Can't keep up with all these cruise ships haha. May this photo diary of mine inspire you to travel, go on a cruise, have the best time of your life, relax and have fun. The cruise is packed with all sorts of activities for each and everyone. From ziplining, amazing shows, wall rock climbing, casino, shopping and etc. The ship has restaurants for the foodie in you. They even sell gadgets for the techie ones. Spending a week on the ship is definitely one of the highlights of my summer 2017.

Where To Go and What To Do:

Windjammer Cafe. Hands down to the best buffet ever! And yes, Windjammer is the first one that came into my mind as I am writing this. If you know me, you know that I am down for buffets. There are so many food choices and you just keep coming back cos the food is good. Okay, this is making me hungry right now.

Royal Theater. If you are into musicals and all about having a wonderful time, I recommend you watching them. Make sure you book reservations ahead so that you can have seats. It was too late when we booked but there were empty seats usually or you can just stand at the theater. I had so much fun watching the musicals.

The Fine Line. OH! MY! GOD! Breathtaking performance! To the highest level! Jawdropping! You have to watch this performance. You will be left in awe and amazed for sure.

Solarium. This area has my favorite spot ever. Especially during late nights, you can watch the stars and the moon during the night and enjoy the wonderful sea breeze.

Shops. Don't forget to buy your souvenirs!

My family and I had a wonderful time once again cruising with Royal Caribbean. It was our second time cruising with the company and we are already looking forward to our next one.
