daily life Mexico travel

Vacation all I ever wanted: Cabo San Lucas

I love my job. I’m blessed to be doing something I love, but about every June/July, I find myself burning out. Overloaded, uninspired and in need of a break where I am completely cut off from email & any thought of work. It’s just how it goes.

A few back to back 60 hour work weeks in June this year after no real break in 6 months made me thankful that at the last minute we booked a trip to Mexico with another couple.

This was my first trip to Mexico & it was lovely. Cabo is vibrant and full of culture. The people are kind & personable. And the food is fucking delicious. I may have permanently ruined enchiladas for myself.

A wildlife conservation booth by the marina let’s you hold a tiger cub that is eventually sent to a wildlife reserve. You donate to reserve to hold the cub. I would never do this if it was purely for someone else’s profit. I love animals & this little guy was too cute. They rescue these animals from black market sales & we were happy to support this cause.

Cabo Pulmo is home to the only living reef in North America. We went out snorkeling and saw huge schools of fish, sting rays, manta rays and a school of Mahi Mahi. It very remote and a very small little town.

Our final day in Cabo, the day we were supposed to leave, we were hit by an unexpected tropical storm. I have never been in a storm so ferocious & was worried we wouldn’t make it to the airport or that our flight would be delayed. It blew through so quickly though & we were able to leave. Though final time in the sun and in the pool was now not possible before checkout (boo!).

We will be back to Cabo, though as a Pacific Northwest native, I will never again go to Cabo in July. 97 degree heat is one thing but added humidity of 40-50% every single day was just crippling for someone not acclimated. The constant need to be immersed in a body of water is tiring.

But it was a good trip. I came home inspired in many ways, one of which has put me back on track to pick up learning a language again.

I’m happy to be home with my furry baby girls again though. Now to countdown to the next trip.

Have a relaxing weekened,
