Jump right in and swim until you're free

Alright so, something looks different here doesn't it?
It's basically the same but something did changed other than the obvious blog name.
Back in March I had the worst of the worst shittiest of experiences and I had to do something to feel like myself again, to be happy. I had to move out of my flat, went through a breakup, almost lost my promotion, my car was nearly impossible to be fixed after a horrible car crash, had no money, and none of my friends were in the country. It was some tough shit.
The blog was obviously the last thing on my mind, I allowed it to just die along with everything from my past as if it belonged to a different life.  But the thing is I like to write, it's my thing and I don't want to let it go.
Why the name though? There are a lot of things that I don't value as much as other people do, I don't feel like "my life is over if I don't get those shoes/phone/etc". I don't want things, I want experiences and even more than that I want to learn from them because that is something that no one can ever take away from me.
So not everything was all bad, I had a friend that took me in and made space for me in his apartment so that I could move in.  I'm still very ME in a sense where I don't need to plan my whole life but I've learned to prioritize things. I have come to the conclusion that all I really want is to have a good time, and the best way to do that is to travel and getting out of my confort zone.
So here are some pics from when I went to Finca Tatin (back in June), a long lost hotel found in a remote location (only accesible by boat). I had been to this place before but never like this, I am horrible at swimming but I still jumped into the water.  I also did a little kayaking, went into a "temazcal" (mayan sauna) and met a bunch of new cool people.
A few things to consider if you're planning on visiting:

  • I would recommend making your reservation through Booking (never had problems with them)
  • There's no need for you to pay for anything in advanced (not even your reservation) until you're ready to leave this place
  • They are very trustworthy and they'll give you the responsibility to write down whatever you took (water, breakfast, diner, kayak) in a notebook and later you'll get charged.  Please be honest and don't fuck it up, it's a very cool system.
  • The "Apartment with sea view" is the best room ever, there isn't a sea view (don't know what happened there) but a river
  • If you really really dislike bugs, this isn't the place for you
