What places have you been that inspire you? I could name many places near and far that inspire me, especially if they offer a delicious cuisine! Although I wouldn’t consider myself a foodie because I love to exercise equally, a guilty pleasure of mine is watching the travel channel for the FOOD. Besides my mother I once had a great mentor in my life who taught me the importance of traveling. Since then I have traversed many states, countries, and nations. In 2013 I spent time in Quintana Roo, known for its deep, lush jungle. A quick road trip to the different cenotes on this part of the Yucatan Peninsula proves to be an excellent daytime getaway. If there were any one thing I’d say that inspired me in Quintana Roo, I would say that it was the influence of the Mayan culture. I found myself steeped in Mayan culture at every turn during my two-week experience. The rituals I witnessed, the stories I learned, and the ruins I climbed provided an incredibly spiritual experience for me. Not only is the Mayan culture full of vibrant colors and mythical stories, but their influence on the mind, body, and spirit is quite strong. Yoga was an excellent way to kickstart every morning in Quintana Roo.
