I can now officially say I have gone to (and survived) Mexico. One of the single oddest places I've ever been, Cancun was an absolute blast! Half sad it's over, mostly because I love the beach, but I don't think my body can handle the lack of sleep and water and excess of sugary drinks.
The flight in was super easy (even with waking up at the crack of dawn to catch our flight), and all my friends were on the same plane as me! There were probably about 200 seniors on the trip.
We didn't really have the best weather in Mexico...it was raining and cloudy until Sunday, but then it ended up being nice enough the rest of the trip. Our hotel was basically all Wake kids and some U Pittsburg students, but it was a really good bonding experience for our class. It was hard to only drink out of water bottles and not eat the lettuce, and with our all-inclusive package we could only eat at 3 places at the resort. You think in Mexico that there would be good Mexican food, but it really wasn't the case at this hotel
The trip basically consisted of waking up, going to the beach until 5 in the afternoon, getting pledge class group dinners, and then going to the club of the night.
The first night was probably my favorite night of the trip. The party we went to was really small (so basically Wake seniors hanging out together) and there was a pool in the middle of the club! Coming from frat parties and the minimal bar scene in Winston-Salem, this was a pleasant surprise. I spent most of the night hanging out in the pool with my friends and it was so worth it.
Sunday was a crazy amount of fun. One fraternity and two sororities rented a boat and did a little cruise for the day! We all walked onto the dock and were surprised at how baby sized the boat was! It worked out really well in the end.
The boat stopped at a little island for lunch and a break from the water. The cruise was a total of like eight hours, and we all passed out when we got back to the hotel.
The rest of the days were spent by the beach!
I loved spending spring break with my sorority and the other seniors, and I can't wait to celebrate during my last half semester of college!
