I thought it was a great time for a holiday. January & February were so busy with travel and I was exhausted. I needed a break - and what better than to escape with the fam jam to beautiful Mexico!! Mexico was bliss. For my own knowledge - we stayed at three different resorts (Sandos Playacar, Beach Palace Cancun, and Moon Palace Cancun). It was peaceful & perfect - just like you would expect your all-inclusive holiday to be.
Two days into our amazing holiday we got word that COVID-19 was declared a pandemic. Pandemic? What?
Two days after that we found out that we would have to self-isolate for 14 days upon our return.
Our heads were spinning. We got home 2 days before Canada's "fly home" date & we returned to distance schooling.
Distance what now?!
We had no clue when we left on holidays that the kids wouldn't step foot in their school again. That we'd come home to some fear, isolation & everything new. We will cherish these memories of Mexico & really, we are so very glad that we got away one last time for a while!!
We always said that I would take our kids on a special holiday of their choice (within reason!) when they were 13. This year it was time to take the boy & he chose Ireland! Nowhere else, just Ireland...we spent 16 days truly exploring the country. We flew into Dublin and went onto Belfast by bus. From there I rented a car and learned very quickly how to drive on the left side of the road!
