Spring break (a la Urban Dictionary):
The time of school year where college aged young adults and some high school students (In March or April) descend upon vacation resorts such as Cabo, Cancun, Miami, and other sunny locales to partake in much debauchery which usually results in hangovers, a burning sensation when urinating, strange discharge coming from various orifices, interesting pictures, and great memories!
Girl 1: "Hey, have you heard about the new spring break hot spot?"
Girl 2: "No, where is it?"
Girl 1: "Intercourse Pennsylvania! Amish country! I can't wait to get freaky at the barn raising! MTV is going to be there! I gotta go out and buy an apron to go with my dress!"
When it snows like this,
I want to be here.
I spent my snow day dreaming of spring break destinations. Last year we did Costa Rica, which I LOVED and am still dreaming about. I could go right back to this spot until that volcano erupts on me or I have burning with urinating.
That monkey on the right had a bad attitude. DO NOT sneer at me red butt!:
Seriously, it does NOT get better than this:
The two years prior to Costa Rica, we went to Mexico. This year we decided we’d just go back to Mexico to our favorite little haunt. I mean, who wouldn’t want some more of this?
Not a bad spot to hang out with a cerveza:
The beach was not long enough to run on, but this was a good set up:
Here is where you almost see my crack:
Can you find what’s funny about this photo?
I love this place, the Hotel Marina El Cid. I like it because it is small (unlike some of these resorts that practically have their own subway systems), has good food and is the ultimate in relaxation. Costa Rica and Mexico were two totally different trips: Costa Rica was all about adventure and side trips. Mexico was about lay on your ass and repeatedly say, “mas cerveza por favor.”
We decided to head back to the Hotel Marina El Cid on the Rivera Maya in Mexico. Only one problem, two words:
DOH! Here’s where you come in.
Do you have a favorite warm weather spring break spot? If so, please share. I’d like an insider’s perspective versus going to some travel site. I do look at Trip Advisor and while I love that, I’d rather hear from you. Give me some tips on your spot and of course, what the running is like there. I’ll be in the thick of marathon training and will need to get some good miles in.
