We feel like island children in this place…it is exactly what we were looking for.
This is Eirin. We decided she was as cool as us, so we kidnapped her. She is from Norway (Victoria, if you’re reading this, don’t get jealous… We still love you) haha and likes banana splits and quiet walks on the beach. She is almost as loud as us and wants to learn the mexican ways. We are teaching her.
If we look disgustingly happy, it’s because we are.
We have been here for 5 days now and we absolutely love it here. We are so relaxed, surrounded by bungalows, beach huts and family owned restaurants. Everyone here is super relaxed and friendly and the food, not surprisingly, has continued to impress us.
We are now PADI certified Open Water Divers! And the experience was absolutely amazing. There is nothing quite like going underwater and experiencing the underwater world while being absolutely present. We highly recommend it. Our instructor was Dene and we did it with Go Dive Lanta, a company we highly recommend to anyone who is interested.
To celebrate our new diver status, we had a Greek feast. As good as it looks.
Now, all that is left on the agenda is relaxing and going back home. Paty goes to Monterrey; Fernanda will go back to New York and Eirin will keep traveling for another month and a half! Hopefully, she will dive again and send us pictures!
Thank you all for coming along with us on this journey. We still can’t believe it is almost over- we have met some amazing people, had crazy amounts of fun, satisfied our curiosity for the East (but still plan to come back, these Mexicans are not about to disappear) and have found a lot of peace, serenity and calm as to what is to come for the three of us! I think it’s safe to say we are all excited for the future and this trip helped a lot with that.
We are looking forward to seeing all of you!
Maybe we will post some cute pictures in the future but considering we are relaxing and becoming island hippies for the remaining of the time, we doubt it! Haha
Unti our next adventure!
