Well, not any time REAL soon, but at least it's in the future...a little less than 200 days away. But who's counting? I was surfing the net the other day, just curious about airfares to Cancun...not having anything in particular in mind. More wishful thinking than anything. I did a check on VivaAerobus and found fares for -$.01. Yes, that would be a negative one cent. Knowing how VivaAerobus lures you in on these unbelieveable fares, then charges big taxes, I was skeptical. I plugged in some dates and got this fare in response: $117.90. "That can't be right," I said to myself. So I acted like I was going to buy it to check out the whole fare...and that was it...taxes included, round trip from Austin, non-stop. Whoa. I couldn't help it...my finger took over with a mind of its own and clicked on "Purchase." Now I am the owner of a flight to Cancun the end of May. And since that's the low season, I have no worries about finding an inexpensive place to stay. It must be karma. The only negative thing might be that I may have to sit on the wing. My son also suggested that I might have to buy gas for the plane before we leave.
Oh, and one more thing. On my last four trips to Isla, I have wanted to take little side trips to Playa del Carmen, Tulum or even just Contoy...but never did. You know how Isla has that hypnotic effect on you...you get there and all you want to do is...nothing. Walk around the island...take pictures...have a nice meal...take pictures...have a cerveza or eight...take pictures...lay by the beach...take pictures...take a dip in the pool...take pictures...off to see Romi for a couple Margarita's...take pictures. You know what I mean.
So THIS time...I'm going to Playa del Carmen first...then Tulum...THEN go to Isla. I know that's the only way I'll be able to see other places. I have plenty of time to plan. Oh, yeah...I be Isla bound.
