Wow! Life can sure get in the way of your travel plans!
We ended up leaving an incredibly bad host travel agency! What a trip that was. So many issues, so much deceit.
We are now with a great host company by the name of Outside Agents. So good! No outrageous fees and above the board in "what you see is what you get".
My dogs decided to go visit a friend of there's coming up the sidewalk last September 2015... they just forgot I was attached to them via their leashes. I literally did a Superman off the top steps of our porch. Landed hard on my knee and broke my right femur. Nine months later and after two surgeries I'm down to one crutch and feeling better. When 180 pounds of dogs decide to go... you can't stop them... or so I've found.
We did manage to make it to Mexico last February 2016. We met up with our dear friend Veronica and her daughter in a great little seaside fishing village called Puerto Morelos. We spent a lot of much needed time on the beach, got massages, ate good food, and spent quality time with our two amigas.
Sally and our son Greg are headed back to Mexico in July 2016. They plan on staying in the local hotels and using the local transportation. We used it several times in February. Regular bus services and smaller vehicles called Colectivo. They will be doing a lot of hiking and biking and since I'm still recuperating I elected to stay home and watch the dogs. Lucky me!
They are looking forward to spending a couple of nights at Veronica's casa and hanging out on the fabulous beach with her and her daughter.
We are planning our next trip together for November 2016 and again in February 2017.
It's good to have put so much behind us and moving in a positive travel direction again!
