Our Family Getaway to Mexico

Grand Bahia Principe Coba Resort Review

Last week we went to Mexico for an all-inclusive resort vacation – our first as a family of four. If you are following me on Instagram, then you probably saw Story clips from my trip while I was there (early April 2019). The weather was perfect (between 25-30C) and we loved this time off!

I couldn’t help it. Sapiens had me totally hooked from the start!
