Throwback Travel: Our Honeymoon in Zihuatanejo

Honeymoon in Zihuatanejo

Just yesterday I came across an album of old photographs and was mesmerized by the grainy images, long forgotten, captured between the slightly dusty covers. It was an album of our honeymoon, back at the 'turn of the century', in 2000.  This was before digital cameras, Facebook check-ins, camera phones, and selfie sticks.  It was pure, unadulterated relaxation and romance, just like any honeymoon should be. Due to hurricane season being in full swing in September, we opted for a honeymoon destination on the western coast of Mexico, now known as the Viceroy Zihuatanejo.

Oh bliss, all-inclusive luxury right on the beach.

A reminder that no matter how imperfect we may feel on any given day, we will look back and remember how easy it was to look this way.

One night we caught a taxi to a local restaurant, just up the mountain, we had heard about around the pool. It was called Kau-Kan. I will never forget that moment we stepped onto the upper terrace of this magical place.

It was one of those moments of sensual perfection -- the sights, the sound, the flavors, the scents -  that you never want to forget.  A honeymoon should be designed to capture those kinds of moments that you reflect on over and over as the years go by.

Memories of a lifetime....
