Mexico Pt 7: Sunshine & Sad Goodbyes

This is my last holiday post, which makes me sad. Even though my holiday ended a while ago now I still have slight end of holiday blues and a desire to go back - it was honestly one of the best holidays of my life!

We walked back pretty sadly along the beautiful beach on our last day in Mexico – but there was still one night left of amazing food to enjoy!

We went to a restaurant called ‘Mextreme’ and had copious starters followed by build-your-own tacos.

The staff were so lovely and friendly, and we even met a fun Michael Jackson performer…who looks pretty terrifying here!

Another margarita the size of my face – the last one of the holiday, cry.

The next day there was time for one last splash in the pool...

 and another final – slightly more successful – attempt at an underwater selfie! 

My bikini is sold here from by the way – I wore it two days in a row as I liked it so much!

Finally we had no choice and climbed into the mini bus to take us to the airport…only to find out our plane was four hours delayed!

We ate revolting cheese fries and the airport emptied out around us as we sat in the airport bar, drinking ludicrously overpriced drinks and listening to a somewhat repetitive nineties soundtrack (I never want to hear ‘Oooh, baby I love your way again’  - not that I ever wanted to hear it in the first place, actually). The plane home was overnight, and I did manage to sleep a bit, only to emerge blinking into the London…sun! What?! I was so glad it was sunny!

Sometimes I think holidays do more than just give you a chance to relax and have fun - they let you reassess and focus on what you want to do in life, and (without getting too existential) who you want to be. Since I've got back I've really tried to focus on staying true to myself and making decisions that I can be happy with. So I'll leave you with this quote, which I think kind of sums it up... 

Normal service resumes next week - see you then!
