One Year Later + : M E X I C O

Sometime in February of 2019 I was determined to take a solo trip for #YEAR30. I’ve taken solo trips before but not a full-on international solo trip (Ghana was solo half the time – a LEARNING moment). On the phone with a friend deciding on all the locations in my head, we settled on Cozumel, Mexico.
