So, I have funny little story to share. On our recent family vacation to the Mayan Riviera, Mexico with Transat Holidays, I made a pen pal. It’s true! My husband befriended one of the serving staff at Azul Fives Hotel, and they established a bromance for the remainder of our stay (likely fueled by the fact that Ezequiel repeatedly brought over my husband’s favourite drink… multiple times per day). And then, before I knew it, we had exchanged Facebook details.
(Hola to my new friend from Playa del Carmen!)
Here’s the funny thing: trying to explain to Ezequiel the concept of minus temperatures.
You know, the cold, frigid wind chills we experience in the north, coupled with the arctic freeze and snowy whiteouts. Canadian winter, if you will. And when attempting to describe just exactly how cold it gets (in my broken Spanish, of course), he stated, rather bemusedly,
“Why not come back to Mexico. No snow here.” Why not indeed, Ezequiel!

I predict this is going to be one crazy twitter party!! These freezing temperatures, combined with that awesome grand prize… Wow!!!
I think you’re right about that!!
Sounds like it’s going to be a fun party. Do you have any posts on travel etiquette for new travelers (manner wise, tipping wise, etc..)? I know how I behave at home, but in another country I feel like there must be different courtesies to follow now and then. I’d love to know what other people do while on vacation!
I don’t Amber, but I may just have to research and write that one for you!
Wow I wish I can attend, too bad I am busy that night!
We’ll miss you :(
Looking forward to it!
Can’t wait to tweet with you!
