Blogosphere friends, I need some help. I need your advice.
Summer is just around the corner – even though it is already hot enough for summer here – which means I get my one week of holidays in July. Firstly I thought the whole deal with being a teacher was getting the rumored long summer holidays. I feel ripped off. Anyway since I love the beach we have decided to go to a beach for a few days and it is here where I have a dilemma. I have two options and I cannot decide.
Option 1: Take the family to the Riviera Maya just because it has some absolutely beautiful beaches and cenotes, ruins and other great stuff and my partner – who is Mexican – has never been! However this would mean forking out almost 2 months pay. Yes. 2 MONTHS. We really do get paid peanuts here in Mexico, they just say that they are pesos.

Option 2: Hop on down to Veracruz on the Gulf Coast, which I love by the way, but is in my backyard and it would be so much fun to go somewhere a bit further for my last holiday before Christmas. On the plus side it will be so much cheaper than the Riviera Maya. I seriously need to win the lottery one of these days if I want to keep working in Mexico.

So dear friends and readers, help me out here. What should I do? Stay with the known close to home or pay up for something a little more exotic?
