Teetotum

We were pretty lucky to be staying on a strip with some of the most adorable hotels and hostels we saw in Tulum. One of the things I loved most about the hotels, restaurants and bars was their use of outdoor space — pretty much everything is outside, covered with a roof and some walls, but outside, no less. Coming from a place like Toronto where that type of outdoor space would never come to fruition because of the impending winter, it truly felt special to eat and drink at every spot we went to. If I could, I would do everything outside, which made Tulum pretty perfect for me.

Teetotum Hotel was one of our favourites because it was so close to our hotel, the people were so friendly, the dogs were v cute, and the thing that originally brought us in, the colors and design, are stunning. We can’t speak to the stay there, since we only had coffee, smoothies and breakfast (delicious, though), but if it’s anything like the service we received from our short interaction with the lovely lady working the front space, then it’s probably great. It’s a bit more pricey – especially during the busy season – than the hotel we were at, but it would be well worth staying there a couple nights, I’m sure.

The Thing About Tulum

it’s stunning in so many ways. I think I was prepared for the natural beauty I saw, but what I didn’t expect was how I would fall for the “urban” parts of the city and it’s colourful facades. The colour palettes and vibrance of this little city is truly something to behold. I could have honestly spent days walking around the downtown neighbourhood photographing Tulum’s disheveled brilliance. It felt as though it spoke volumes of the culture and people who reside there – unassumingly beautiful.

Mexico Colours

Well I am back from Tulum, and I’m not even sure where to begin. I guess I can start by saying there was a pretty large fuck up on my part before we left – I didn’t realize my passport was expired until a day before we were leaving, which made me really think I wasn’t even going to make it to Mexico. But, thanks to my seriously amazing calm and collected boyfriend, we got it all worked out in a single day and I made it to Tulum just as we planned. fucking PHEW!

Mexico is an overwhelmingly beautiful place. I pretty much fell in love with it the second we passed through Playa del Carmen on our way to Tulum. I feel as though I have a lot to say about Mexico and Tulum and the people I met and the things I saw, but not right now. I have many pictures to share, so I’ll be able to do that in the next few posts, but I’m still pretty tired from non stop moving and little sleep, so today probably isn’t the best time to really get into it. Mush brain, y’know.

I will say, I have never travelled much in my life. I’ve lived on my own since I was 19, in Toronto, an incredibly expensive city, which has always made it hard for me to have the money or time to travel. But now that I have seen Mexico, I have become totally enamored with visiting more of it, the surrounding countries and South America. I now get why people become obsessed with travel. It’s weirdly addictive and eye opening.  Anyways, I’ll leave you with these images Kristen shot of me in a neighbourhood close to downtown Tulum. So cute, right?!
