Anne and I went on our first week long non-working vacation ever. We’ve been together since 2001 and we have taken little trips, or we have gone places that involved being on team for or leading workshops, but we have never done anything to this scale before. The most daunting part of our trip was planning it. The stories we carried in our head of what it would take to go (passports, more money than we have, will be taken advantage of because we will stand out as clueless tourist, etc) was threatening to cast a pall on the excitement of what it could be like. There comes a point where one realizes they need to choose to commit to the adventure or not, stories be damned. We chose wisely. We hopped on a plane to Yelapa Mexico. Neither of us had ever been anywhere like this before. We were going to meet friends who had, so we put our faith in their knowledge. Again, this was a good choice. We let go and lived for the adventure.
I had been in a place of introspection so this trip was full on insights. I may be doing a couple of posts over the next few days just talking about some of the things I learned.
For now, I am posting this photo essay of our trip. I was able to cull it down to less than 50 photos. This was an amazing adventure.
Either enjoy the photo essay as presented here, or if you feel moved click on an image and scroll through one at a time.
