All about life, ups and downs, as we wait for the return.
Published on October 29, 2009 By slave2son In Travel

My wife and I just got back from an all inclusive trip to Mexico.  It was great, and even better, it was free!  She had helped with a financial campaign for the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and because of how much she raised, was able to take me for free.  The stay was short, only 4 days and 3 nights, but it was fantastic.  The ocean is so healing.  Just being out in the sunshine and feeling the warm, ocean breeze is enough to keep you going for a while.  

We flew Delta down, which was strange for me because I think it was the first time I'd ever flown Delta not as a non rev passenger.  My Dad was a pilot, so we flew standby and had to adhere to a dress code when we flew.  I took full advantage of not having to do that this time and wore these on the plane.  I could sleep in my comfy clothes and was able to put on wear flip flops when we stepped off the plane. 

Every time we go on a vacation like that, my wife and I think of buying property and living in a tropical location.  You can get a house and land for much cheaper than new homes in Ohio and you can live a year or so in paradise.  It's not that hard to just rent your house out and pay the bills.  If you read the 4 Hour Work Week, you'll want to do the same thing.

We didn't do much while we were down there.  We drank a lot of tequila and ate a lot of food.  We did go shopping and I bought some Gurkha and Cohiba cigars.  You have to be sneaky to bring them back in, though I don't think they are the real thing.  My wife bought some coffee for my parents, but that was it.  It was a great time, and it made me want to go back for more.
