Happy Birthday to me + First Solo International Trip Ever!




I turned 27 about a week and a half ago and I wanted to mark it in a different way. In the past, I usually go out with friends and have dinner with my family. Since grad school, I have spent my birthdays in lab working. I know.

So, I decided to go on my first solo international trip ever (which turned out to be not completely solo....but life happens....in a refreshingly good way). I took the plunge, despite some of my friends and family indignation about solo traveling. I chose a place that I knew I would find interesting and will capture my attention for a week. So, yeah, no beachy resorts here ;).

So, where did I go? Mexico. To be specific, the states of Quintana Roo, Yucatรกn and Campeche.


Why Mexico? You ask. 

Well, it's close, it's cheap, it's convenient.


My birthday (or birth week as I spent the week of my birthday there) was most enjoyable and fun.
