I just got back to my room at the Marriott Cancun Resort in Cancun, Mexico.

I took the advice of my “crashpad dad,” Jeff, and had the Surf & Turf. I’m thrilled that I did! The piece of prime rib that I just ate was probably the most delicious prime rib I’ve eaten since my first experience with Ruth’s Chris (see post). The lobster tail on the plate next to it was the perfect accompaniment!

If you know me- you know I don’t usually eat out this lavish. Since this is my first time in Cancun (well, my first “official” visit, at least), I thought it was worth it. The only other time I’ve been here doesn’t really count because I didn’t even have the opportunity to stop out of the jetway at the airport (see post). They give me “turns” like that just to tease me and mess with my mind. A “turn”, in my line of work, means you fly away from your base and then back by the end of the day. So you don’t get to stay on a layover/ overnight.

What does this mean? This means I can finally check off bucket list item number 13, which is to go to Cancun. I told the desk clerk that this was my first time here, and she gave me a great room that is right on the ocean! I am amazed at this beautiful view! I was so impressed, in fact, that I walked around and did a live Periscope! The video ended up begin just over 17 minutes long. It’s pretty long, yes, but it gives you a good look at the view a walk around the hotel and grounds. Click here to watch.

I wish I had a long time here, but my alarm is set, and I have to be up pretty early in the morning. Sadly, I’m coming back to the states first thing. I would mind coming down here on my own time and checking into the Marriott for at least a week.

Coming in at number 13 on my bucket list is to go to Cancun, Mexico. Technically, this could be crossed off my list- I did fly down to Cancun on January 29th for work, but I never actually left the jetway. Since it was a turn, I was only on the ground for about an hour. I managed to snap this picture with the operations agent, and then we boarded the new passengers and headed back up to the states. I’ll cross this one off my list as soon as I get leave the airport.
