Disclosure: The wonderful folks at Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort have offered accommodations at a discounted rate. However, all opinions are my own. Keep in mind that in the world of endless options, this is my THIRD trip to Moon Palace. That has to speak for my love of the place!
Yes, it’s that time! It’s Father/Daughter vacation time. And this year, we’re doing it with a twist. Let me explain.
Dad is my travel partner and has been for years. It’s fun, exhausting, irritating and exhilarating–all at the same time! So last year, our trip was to Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort in Cancun. MY plan was to visit Moon Palace Jamaica Grande this year or maybe one of those fancy schmancy European riverboat cruises. Notice, I said MY. HIS plan was to go right back to Cancun. He absolutely LOVED it there. And, he waited until just a few months ago to tell me that.
During that conversation, one of my favorite DC cousins, Jimmy, announced that he had never really traveled. I gave him my patent pending side eye. He was serious and broke it down. While I’ve been all over the globe, he’s only ever been as far west as Ohio, as far north as NYC, and as far south as the Carolinas. It made me sad. I thought I was going to cry. I asked him if he wanted to go on our Father/Daughter Mexico trip and I thought he was going to cry. A few weeks later, he had applied for his passport and started saving his money. He is SO excited. And that’s made me SO excited. During one of our recent conversations, he confessed that he thinks about it every night as he falls asleep and wonders what another country will even look like. I feel so honored to be accompanying him on his first airplane trip, his first international trip, his first vacation. I can’t wait to see how big his eyes get when he puts his toes in the Gulf of Mexico for the first time! And, just to round out the group, my cousin Gina is going too! This is going to be a Father/Daughter/Cousins trip!
And what a place to jump start the love of travel! Moon Palace Cancun? YES, PLEASE!
We’re talking abou an all inclusive resort with luxurious accommodations, 24 hour room service, unlimited dining at 14 different restaurants, free wireless internet, whirlpool tubs in room, in room mini bars, activities, etcetera, etcetera! JB and Gina are going to have the absolute times of their lives!
And, because I really need to show y’all my new bod–FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER I will be publishing SWIMSUIT pics of myself. Now, I’m no Miss America, but for a 50 something chick, I’m outchea! Stay tuned. Follow me on Twitter, Periscope, and FB for updates!
