Made it to Mexico!


Yesterday was a long day.  My flight was delayed 7 hours.  First due to snow, next they couldn’t find us a plane, and finally we had to sit on the tarmac for 3 hours because they did not have enough meals to serve to the people in business class.  This was all exaggerated by the fact that Liz and I did not sleep the night before because we were out late on a boat party.  But after much irritation, we made it.

I am currently relaxing in Ixtapan, Mexico at Hotel Spa Ixtapan – an all inclusive spa located in the mountains about 1.5 hours south of Mexico City.  

I know a lot of you will hate me after you read how I have been spending my day… so if you will get too upset, I understand and you are welcome to stop reading here.

After a lovely breakfast filled with fresh fruits and fresh squeezed juices, my crew and I enjoyed relaxing Kundulini yoga in the beautiful yoga hut.  Here is a picture to give you an idea.  Tomorrow I will try to take some photos inside so you can see how zen it really is.1smNext we relaxed by the pool in the lovely 80 degree weather before enjoying a session of underwater zoomba (you read that right, underwater).  It was ridiculously fun.  The pool (seen above) is adorned with a lovely fountain to add to the ambiance.9sm 8smI followed that up with a quick dip in the hot tub before being served lunch on the most darling pavilion overlooking the pool.11sm 10smCan you even imagine a nicer place to eat lunch?

Then I took my afternoon nap.  And now I am lounging in my robe before my daily massage at 5:00 begins and writing to let you all know that you can stop worrying about me for a bit.  I am doing fine and being pampered in paradise.  Oh and did I mention that after my massage I will be receiving a facial and reflexology?

Here are a few more pictures I took today from around the spa.  The first two are the view from my hotel room.12sm 7sm5sm 6sm 4sm  2sm3sm Hope to hear from you all soon!

  1. Rachel,

    Glad to know you are having a relaxing time at the spa after the aggravation you suffered in getting there.
