Viva La Mexico!

Today is Day 7 of #Blogtober14 (aka blog every day in October), brought to you by Helene in Between and The Daily Tay. Today's topic is "your best/worst vacation".  To play along, check out the daily prompts here.

I was fortunate to have been given the travel bug at an early age. As a family, we traveled almost every year, whether it was a camping trip, road trip to the West Coast or an all inclusive trip down south. Travelling is a huge part of who I am today, and if funds permit, is something I want to give our future children as well.

One person I have successfully instilled the travel bug in is my husband. Back in 2010, he got to experience his first all inclusive resort, as we travelled to Riviera Maya. To this day, it remains one of my favourite vacations (our ultimate road trip from Alaska to Toronto takes #1 and will be hard to top), not for one particular reason, but because it was our first vacation together.

It was a week filled with sun, sand, scuba diving, sight seeing and [too much] booze...

We look so young! And can we please talk about Steve's serious flow?!

What's your best/worst vacation?
