SanaconKC Bus

Throughout our travels Deidre and I have come across many interesting, exciting and weird things. Back in our hometown of Kansas City for the holidays, we recently participated in one of the more interesting, exciting and definitely weird things yet – Santacon Kansas City or SantaconKC. Santacon is a pub crawl for Santa, because hey, apparently Santa needs to get out of the house during the holidays too! If you’re having trouble wrapping your brain around this idea let me you help out. Close your eyes. Wait no, don’t close your eyes since you need them to finish reading this…

Happy Holidays

    We have headed north to celebrate the holidays with family and friends. While we’re enjoying catching up with everyone, trying to stay close to the fireplace and having some fun in the snow, we look forward to our return soon to the sun, sand and WARMTH of Mexico! We wish all of you and yours a very merry, peaceful and joyful holiday.

Mexico Minute - AWOL Americans

Last week we headed out to the beach about midnight with some friends to watch the Geminid meteor shower. We didn’t catch a photo of any of the stunning meteors but we also had a great view of this lovely, almost full, moon. I cannot think of a more beautiful place in the world to witness this display.

If you have time and are inclined please take a moment to read our post and comment, the more comments the better our chances of winning. Thank you…

Posadas in Playa del Carmen

We come from the Midwestern part of the United States. Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter – they all happen there. I’ve discovered living in this tropical climate means there are only two seasons, hot and less hot. Or humid and less humid. Which means my climate cues on the changing of the season and the accompanying holidays is all off. It has been so foreign for me to see Christmas trees erected everywhere and the store shelves lined with toys and decorations while I’m walking around in shorts and flip flops. It also means it’s been a bit hard for to…

One of my favorite things about living in Playa del Carmen is the amazing frequency with which we run across unexpected things. One night earlier this week was no exception. We were walking to a Christmas party with our hands full of wrapped gifts and rain pouring down on us, just trying to stay kind of dry and not step into the deepest puddles. Right about the time I noticed that our wrapping paper wasn’t very waterproof I heard a sound and looked up the block to the next cross street. What did my eyes behold but a parade! The…

Riviera Maya Jazz Festival

I am really not a big live music fan. I occasionally go to concerts and shows of bands that I truly love, but I’m not one to go to hear a band play just to go. I’d never say “I’m in the mood to hear some live music tonight, let’s go catch a show.” Which, having a music fanatic husband who loves to hear bands live and would say that exact thing has made some of our social decisions over the years a bit challenging. It’s not that I don’t like music, I love to listen to music and my…
