We had not been on vacation for a long time, that term that includes relaxation, disconnection, tranquility, peace ... But is that not a trip? !!NO!! And we think it's time to explain it.
Today, almost with 50 destinations behind us, we can say that we have traveled in several tens of different ways, NEVER ENGLOBING US in the same concept (!! no !!, !! we are not backpackers !!) because we firmly believe that each trip must be done as you want to do it, according to the destination, adapting according to the time you have, the moment personal or even the purely economic issue.
Thus we have come to places like Kiribati, Tuvalu or Vanuatu in the recent South Seas with the backpack in tow, like to Cuba and many other destinations, completely for free and without looking at the clock. We have also gone with that backpack to Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda or R.D. Congo, keeping the spirit completely personalized by us but using a driver to optimize times. Or why not? with suitcases to the Holy Land, but with the freedom and flexibility of a car and stopping where we wanted, without forgetting the first package with a tour operator we took to go to Jordan back in 2006.
And which one did we like the most? !!EVERYONE!! Because the way to travel is very personal, and although what we like most is to leave the clock, take the backpacks and get lost in the world, we know that we have to adapt to the circumstances if we want to continue traveling.
Travel or vacation?
How could it be otherwise, you can travel to Riviera Maya in many ways. For free, organized, backpacking or in an all-inclusive package, but more important for us right now is… traveling or on vacation?
There are times when the body does "crack" And that has come to us. It usually has cycles, but especially this last season has been very hard in the respective works. Thus, what was initially going to be a Trans-Siberian ended up becoming a… Why don't we take a destination where we can turn off something more than the mobile ... !! the head !!? Don't think about getting up, don't think about renting a car, don't think about knowing, don't think about frying some eggs. !! THAT'S HOLIDAY !! for us.
And the time has come to take some ... and we know that many people feel identified with us at this particular moment
Vacation in paradise?
In this article of reflection, we especially like to take a look at that "portrait" that we all make of "paradise" ...
He paradise for many is that beach destination, turquoise blue waters, palm tree on the beach and mojito or cocktail. For others it is to be able to catch a little boat and get lost in the Greek seas. And for others it is the same Benidorm where they disconnect from the daily routine.
For us there is only one paradise, and it's called Kandholhu. That deserted island, with almost no people, surrounded by corals, turtles, isolated on the planet, from the civilized world ... but economically unaffordable.
Valuing the best paradise / economy options we get, without a doubt, the Caribbean!, that place on the planet so promoted in Spain that meets many of the previous premises, although perhaps not the massification. And inside him, Riviera Maya satisfies a second premise to make it an ideal vacation spot !! What if we want to know about culture or relax? Culture, Mayan Ruins, Swim with dolphins or whale sharks, theme parks, colonial or tourist villages, boat trips, activities of all kinds ... !!DECIDED!! !! HOLIDAYS IN RIVIERA MAYA !!
In the next few days we continue to reflect on the decisions that led us here (Package or flight + hotel?) But while answering some questions ... How do you like to travel? What is your paradise concept? and ... what does this year, trip or vacation play?
