On Thursday morning, we touched down at Gatwick after our two week honeymoon to Riviera Maya, Mexico.
After two days at home we are still struggling to get over the jet lag, but our two weeks away were, without doubt, two of the best of my life.
Our hotel was gorgeous, right on the beach. We went all-inclusive, so the only thing to do really was lay by the pool drinking cocktails.
We went on a couple of excursions, visiting Chichen Itza, the ancient Maya ruins; swimming in an underground cenote and snorkelling with whale sharks, the biggest fish in the sea.
Because we were on our honeymoon, we had a few little perks tied in to our holiday. We had a romantic dinner on the beach (that only got rained off just before dessert, so that was okay); we had a massage in the Spa; we had a bottle of champagne in our room on arrival and housekeeping often left us swans made out of towels decorated with rose petals.
We had an absolutely fabulous time and really didn’t want to come home – although the mosquitos were starting to wear me down, seemingly immune to however much insect repellent I sprayed all over myself.
It was amazing and relaxing and I couldn’t have asked for a better honeymoon.
Now we’re home and thinking about having to get back to the grind when school starts back on Monday, and about our impending appointments at Guy’s, the prospect of which is very exciting.
We also got an email from our wedding photographer to say our pictures are ready and online so we can choose around 60 for our album, which he will then print, put in the album and send to us, along with a CD of proofs. In the meantime, we can look online and so can our friends and family. The pictures are brilliant and I love how totally happy we look. There are over 400, so it takes a while to get through them all, but we’ve looked at them about 3 times already. In fact, I think I’m going to publish this, click on the link and look at them all again.
