Coral brain

Happy New Year!
I hope you have big hopes for 2011 like I do. My visual checklist is on Pinterest.
This is the year I graduate, hoorah!

My family and I traded the snow for Christmas holidays in Mexico.
I relaxed on the beach, saw the Mayan ruins at Tulum and snorkeled in Ya kul Lagoon and Akumal Beach. I saw a number of Clown fish, Parrot fish and Stingrays! My first trip to a tropical beach was amazing, I cannot wait to go back. A visit to Mexico was the perfect end to 2010.

I feel rested and ready to take on 2011.

Aaah, looks amazing! I am going to Tulum (again, 2nd year in a row) in a couple weeks, so it's great to get a sneak peek!

Happy 2011!

I love the pictures and the post, but am I completely alone in my love and belief that Winter should be *cold*? I love the way the freezing temperatures accent the time of year- if I were on a tropical beach during Christmas it would throw me completely out of whack. As it is, I wouldn't mind visiting it.
Good luck in the coming year!

HEARBLACK - I wish! Hawaii is still on my travel list. Happy new year, Nate and Katie!

Julie, Cara - Thanks!

Kate - This was my first warm ocean trip! Is the ocean warm on Venice Beach?

Jane - Happy New Year!

Yoel - Oooh, got any room in your suitcase? ;) Have fun! I'll be thinking of you on the beach. Happy 2011!

Grace - This was my first warm weather vacation, and I have to admit it did make Christmas seem very distant! I usually go home to Manitoba for Christmas, and this year I did miss the frost and the snow. However, it was really nice to try something new! I had always wanted to make a trip to Mexico after studying its history during my undergrad. :) Happy New Year!
