#TravelDreams–Sacred Mayan Journey, Cozumel, Mexico


Every so often, I get travel pitches or see articles about really cool or interesting travel experiences. Obviously, I can’t experience all of these first hand, but I still want to be able to share them with you. Last year, I had the chance to visit the Moon Palace Resort in Cancun as part of…
