Adios, Chicago! Hola, Cozumel!
This was an unusual Christmas for my family. We wanted to do something different, so my mom looked at trips and decided we should all go to Cozumel, Mexico. I was so excited to get out of the cold and snowy Wisconsin and Chicago weather for a week. I was hyped for the drinks, and as soon as I got to the resort, I ordered a mango mojito. It hit the spot, after a stressful semester. The next day, we spent at the beach and pool. My brother’s girlfriend and I spent our day laying in lounge chairs sipping on mojitos from our favorite bartender, Antonio. The rest of the family went scuba diving, which I failed my test and had no desire to die under water. I’m more into land sports, such as golf and basketball. We enjoyed the sun and drinks all day and I was very much in my happy place.
On Christmas, my dad and I went golfing at the local golf club. It was my first time swinging a club in about a year, so I was a little rusty. Still was a fun time. We saw lots of wildlife on the course.
On the last day, I went snorkeling. I was hesitant to do so, because I had seen jellyfish in the water that week and had no desire to get stung. I went anyway, because I thought that it’d be a fun experience. For the time that I was in the water, I saw a little sea turtle. Then I started getting stung by jellyfish, and I decided to get out because I couldn’t take the pain anymore. I just enjoyed myself on the boat instead, soaked up the sun and drank cervezas.
These photos were all taken on my phone. It is a pain in the ass to lug around my heavy camera, especially when there is a chance it could get water and sand in it, or even get damaged.
