Sneak Peak: Hideaway at Royalton Riviera Cancun (2nd Trip!)

What can I say? We loved the Hideaway at Royalton Riviera Cancun so much we just had to go back.

We actually planned to do a Mountain trip this summer, since we were in Mexico in February. But when I started looking at prices, we realized we could do a return Royalton trip for about $200 more. Tough decision, no?

So we’re off this week to sunny Mexico for our second trip to the most luxurious resort ever. Or maybe not ever, but that we’ve been to. I’ve got lots of ideas planned for this trip, including a list of “Drinks to Order at an All-Inclusive Resort,” so feel free to throw out some ideas for me. Just make them quick, since I’ll only have a few days to snap relevant pictures!

In the meantime, check out my first review of Royalton Riviera Cancun, my comparison of two of the Mexico resorts we’ve been to (I’m still slacking on the updated comparison!), and the best part, all the foooood. I’m making a beeline for that Pad Thai when we get there. Seriously, my priorities are to take pictures of everything I drink, eat all the Pad Thai I can stomach, and order room service every single night.

I’d thought about leaving the resort for once, but….nah. I like reading and relaxing too much. Speaking of reading, later this week I’ll share what’s in my beach bag. If you want you can place bets on what I’ll actually read.

We’re going with friends for the first time since 2014, so that’ll be a fun and slightly different experience! We booked a swim-up room again, and our fingers are crossed it’s the same one we had last time. I’m looking forward to seeing if Karina is still serving drinks in Hideaway!

As for drinks, any suggestions?

Sneak Peak: Utah

Well, my whirlwind Utah trip is drawing to a close. I’m currently sitting in the Salt Lake City airport – avoiding children – and thought I’d give you a quick sneak peak.

The trip has been awesome. I’ve been here for a week, but most of it was for work. Jennifer and I’ve crammed a lot into the 3 days we’ve had free. I can’t wait to share it with you.

I’m ready to be home, though….I miss Jimmie and the pups. So much so, in fact, that when I saw the stuffed and mounted wolf (I think it’s a wolf?) in the airport shop, I immediately wanted to tug its ears the way I tug Luka’s. Sigh. I miss the goober. Plus, Jimmie painted the bedroom this weekend, and I’m pretty excited to see it. And give them all their presents.

But enough of that.

Here’s just a taste of what’s to come…..
