The beach is beautiful and the jungle is majestic but the town of Tulum is rich with sights your eyes can really grab on to. And coconut paletas to cool you off.

Every morning I wake up, do my Morning Pages, practice yoga by the beach and eat a green smoothie while checking my email and texting Jeremy. The days are spent exploring or simply lying by the beach. Our evenings usually end with a whole fish on our plates.

Last night I woke up in the middle of the night with a scorpion directly in front of my face on the mosquito net. While I was still in a state of half-sleep I felt a sort of wordlessness and even oneness with the scorpion. It was watching me but it was also watching over me. As I started to become more awake the fear of “OMG there is a scorpion on my bed!” started to sink in and just like that, the scorpion crawled up the net to let me sleep.
