My Mexico Video (aka "my first and last ever bikini shoot")

While I was in Oaxaca on the Mexico Today kick-off event last June, I was asked to do an interview talking about Mexico and my city: Cancun. I was a bit nervous as I sat down in front of the camera, but I found that the words came easily to me. Talking about places I love so much was a breeze! The minutes flew by, and before I knew it, the video crew was telling me “Thanks! I think we got it.”

A few weeks later, I got an e-mail saying that Eye Candy would like to do some shots with me here in Cancun. (They call this extra footage “B Roll”… I feel very professional when I say that.) So in August, I spent a weekend hanging out with them in Party Center and on Isla Mujeres. It was a very difficult day swimming in the Caribbean Sea, eating burgers, riding in golf carts and drinking cocktails from coconuts, but somehow I got through it. πŸ˜‰

This weekend I finally got to see the end result of my “My Mexico” story on Youtube. *drumroll* TA-DA!!!

**Please forgive the horrible face I’m making on the default image… very unfortunate.**

You can also see me and some of my Mexico Today partners in crime in other My Mexico videos on the “MexicoToday” Youtube page. We talk about Mexican beaches, Mexican markets, ecotourism, ancient ruins, and more.

  1. AWESOME! I love hearing bloggers voices and it was so neat to see you doing something in a professional atmosphere. Looks like you really did have it rough though – sorry about that πŸ˜‰
    What a great program you’re involved in!

  2. LOVE your video! It’s so nicely shot and you’re perfect in it.

    It reminds me of when I used to interview kids on my MTV shows! Love that Thai restaurant area & the cave diving?… I think you should do a post on them! (get a free dive out of it) But also, I just found this post (below) on a huge underwater park there off Isla Mujeres (which I now know of thanks to you)! Was wondering if it’s open and if people dive here…

  3. Ah! You’re a star! That is seriously awesome!!! Loved learning about your faves and actually hearing your voice- it’s weird when you get to know a blogger but you realize you’ve never heard or seen them speak before…

  4. It sounds like you’re having some amazing opportunities at the moment, I’m glad- its all about getting the word out about beautiful places like this. How professional was the video- loved it! xx
