Pure freedom: cruising Isla Mujeres : )

Tuesday. AKA first day back to work after 6 weeks of gallivanting on the other side of the world. Bleh. What makes it harder? This time last week, I was cruising around Isla Mujeres in Mexico on a little golf buggy, wind in my hair, not a care in the world… damn…

If you’re visiting Cancun and need a break, do yourself a favour and jump on one of the Ultramar ferries that’ll carry you over to Isla Mujeres. It’s only 20 minutes away, and it’s a lot quieter and more beautiful than Cancun. It’s also perfect for someone who’s a little neurotic and control freaky like me, someone who’s typically too caught up with what has to be done and the deadlines and the appointments and all that crap. It’s suffocating! But for around USD$40, one of the island’s little golf carts is yours for the day, to drive around and explore at your leisure. No where to be but where ever the road takes you  : )

Some of our stops included some little road side taco “restaurant” – I saw a little sign with a pig on it, so we pulled over and walked behind an old building to check it out. Amazing tacos!

We also stopped by the turtle farm, the main strip where the locals live, and Punta Sur, a gorgeous cliff top park area…

It’s a beautiful way to spend a day, with no plans, no stress, no phones, no appointments, no deadlines, no one to answer to, no obligations to meet. I guess it can get a little tough day to day, when it feels like there is no escape, when you just don’t feel free chained to your responsibilities and obligations – it was a nice lesson to learn that it’s ok to take that time when you need it, it’s ok to escape, you’re allowed to free yourself for a little while from the daily grind!
