I had been working NON STOP... I needed to get away. One of my absolutely favorite relaxation locations is Mexico. I'm sure you are thinking...duh you stayed at the resort and drank margaritas all day. Do not get me wrong, I like to sit by the pool and drink a margarita, but my best vacations are spent touring and really getting to know the culture. Mexico is bursting with culture, color, and character. Everyone you meet raves about the food and traditions of their neighborhood.
One of the coolest things I've seen here are the cliff divers in Acapulco. these divers literally jump from a million feet up -- okay, that was dramatic, but it really did feel like it. The La Quebrada Cliff Divers are a group of professional high divers that have been performing for the last 85 years. It was hands down such an amazing experience.
One thing I wish Maryland had more of is bright colors. I mean the whole city is a coloring book. As an artist, I am drawn (hehe get it) to bright vibrant colors. I mean hot pink hotels, bright yellow streets, and sooo many beautiful flowers. I'M OBSESSED!
