Arrived in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico

Well, after a crazy displaced week of selling, packing, cleaning, storing, driving, visiting and Halloweening we've finally arrived in beautiful Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The weather is hot, humid and simply wonderful.

For us though, that walk into humidity represented the first steps into a 6 month adventure that admittedly we spent less time planning than some of those overpriced last minute resort experiences we've had...

Preparations for Playa

We're now in full swing getting ready for our trip. Less than two weeks and we begin our first leg in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

It's amazing how much work goes into planning a trip like this for our little family of four.

There are vaccinations to get, storage for our truck and belongings, travel insurance, adding parking insurance to the truck, doctors, dentists and optometrists appointments, organizing our condo rental in Playa (we had to transfer US cash to an Italian couple's American bank account for a rental in Mexico from a Canadian bank... I get confused just reading that....), buying our plane tickets, checking visa requirements, letting our credit cards know we're gone, and on and on.
