I'm mostly packed, but feel like I'm really, really missing something important. I've got a passport, a credit card and some cash. That really should be all I need. I think I've packed way too many clothes. I have no idea what to bring since I've never, ever traveled this way in my whole life. How can a couple skirts, a couple shorts and some t-shirts be too much? But the backpack is heavy. And its hot down there. Heavy and hot make Susan cranky. (Conversely, hot and heavy makes Susan happy).
We've reserved two nights in a hostel in Isla Mujeres. I'm sure I will have some stories about that one, and all of our other hostel nights if there are any. We'll stay there for a few days, then head to Merida, Tulum and places in between. On the bus. The places we are going are pretty touristy, so I don't think there will be much to worry about, other than severe gastro-intestinal distress.
So, wish me luck. Send me good weather, and cute men.
And when I get back, a new chapter in my life will start. Hopefully, it won't be the chapter where I fight off tropical bacterial infections.
