The final week in Tulum was pretty much the perfect end to an amazing trip. We rented an apartment in town and did nothing but relax. We went to the big supermarket and did a cheap and completely self-catered week, and it was amazing. When we weren't cooking, we chilled on the beach all day and worked on our tans to make everyone back home jealous.
We had some fairly amusing experiences on the beach like the fruit sellers who migrated to our spot of shade everyday, and the married couple simulating sex in the water - whilst wearing full wedding outfits - for their wedding photos. How proud a mother you would be to receive that in the post. The funniest experience had to be when we took a walk down the beach to escape the thongs, - not exclusively worn by women by the way - fake boobs and budgie smugglers. We accidentally stumbled across a porn shoot, and I'm not joking! There were lots of high-haired, fake-breasted women wearing little more than high heels being photographed, accompanied by a sign that said the area had been rented by a private group. Interesting.
All joking aside though, the last four months have been some of the best of my life. I experienced things I could never have even dreamt of experiencing and could not have asked for a better guy by my side.
We met interesting characters, saw interesting things, but most of all learnt a lot about ourselves. I can't speak for Tim, but I grew up a lot whilst learning not to take life so seriously all the time. I won't bore you all with my invaluable life lessons, all I'll say is you should all take some time from your busy lives to travel and find out for yourselves.
I also want to thankt Tim for looking after and supporting me. I really don't think I could have done it without him!
