One of the joys of hanging out in a place for more than a few days is that we don’t feel rushed to do anything. It also helps to have extra time when we are also trying to do work on super slow internet. It forces us to work much slower than we are used to and this sets the pace for just about everything else that we do.
Farewell Todos Santos, The Journey Continues
When Neeley and I started planning for our trip around the world, we wanted to start with something that was just sitting around at a beach and decompressing from our previous life. We chose Todos Santos because it looked like a good place to relax and chill. It has been and we’ve had a wonderful time staying here, going to the beach and sampling fish tacos. This past week we managed to hang out at the beach most of the time, but we also took time to visit San Jose del Cabo, and also started planning the next stage of our trip. We also survived hurricane/tropical-storm Blanca as she passed through. Thankfully, she caused very little damage.

Mezcal in San Jose del Cabo
Matt and I are in San Jose del Cabo for a couple of days. It’s a really cute little town that is really worth exploring. Sadly, it seems that most of the people who come here stay on the grounds of their all-inclusives and don’t bother to visit this gem of a town. There is great little art and foodie scene growing here with an organic market, lots of great art galleries featuring local Baja and Mexican artists, and really delicious restaurants.
Almost off the grid for a couple days
Sorry for not updating, we have been trying to catch up, and thought we would be able to at our current location (Yelapa, Mexico) but WiFi is down due to some weather issues earlier. We just have T-Mobile roaming data, which isn’t much faster than old dialup modems.
We are off to snorkel today. More updates when we get back to WiFi.

La Paz, Mexico
It’s Friday night and we are packing our things up as we leave Mazatlan tomorrow morning. We’ve spent the past week in two different beach towns, La Paz and Mazatlan, and rode a ferry overnight to cross the Sea of Cortez (the longest time I can remember being on a ship of any type).
