Vacations on hold Pt. 1: Te Amo, Tulum

While we all take some time to turn inward, social distance, and also take a good hard look at who is being most greatly impacted by the pandemic (and start thinking what we need to do to change it!), I thought it would be the perfect time to flashback on a few trips -- since there won't be any happening, anytime soon.
