We're going travelling

palms

We’re going on a road trip to Baja. It’s going to be a nice getaway especially after the past month we’ve gone through with my Mom passing. Greg and I will be gone for 2 months. I sure am looking forward to it!

I have to say we don’t think of this time as a “vacation” though because we both will be working while we’re gone except when we’re driving of course, but we will be having fun and enjoying ourselves too. It’s always an adventure to go to Mexico!

We’ll be in contact because we will have internet service almost the whole time. So I’ll be writing blog posts and updating my Twitter and Facebook accounts. My Etsy Shop will remain open but I won’t be filling any orders until the beginning of July when we get back.

I love travelling with Greg. We are the best travel buds because he loves to drive and I don’t. He likes to have long conversations about nerdy things like online marketing and so do I. He likes playing loud music and I do too.

He loves stopping to get a coffee while driving on a long road trip and since I don’t drink coffee very often, I love it when we do that because it always feels like a treat!

We’re driving to southern Baja. We’re planning on 7 days to get there. Our first night will be at a Hot Springs Resort that Greg surprised me with for my Birthday! Okay, that part IS vacation time.

Then we will camp a night and then spend a night with Greg’s Mom near L.A. Then we’ll be in Mexico for the next 3 nights till we reach Todos Santos, located in southern Baja on the pacific side.

We do like to follow a plan but we also like to be flexible and love checking out new places. We’ll be staying in a new area on our way down. More about that later.

I’m planning on doing some new paintings in my Baja art studio. And I’ll be making some art videos for my youtube channel while I’m down there too.

I’ll tell you more about our travel adventure in other blog posts this week. We’re packing this week, lining up the housesitter and getting ready for the trip. I’m excited to go. We leave Sunday. We’re taking the dogs with us too.

There is a saying that I got on one of my birthday cards that goes like this, I really like it:

“I think it’s true what they say

Life really is a journey –

and it’s not always easy to know

which maps to trust

or what to pack for the trip.

But whatever the weather,

wherever the road leads,

I think the best possible

traveling advice would be this:

Bring a friend.”

– Keely Chace

xo,

    Thanks for the good wishes everyone! Glad to know you will be joining us (through this blog) and are ready to come along. 😉

    We’re packing the truck and excited to start our trip. We have a little casita in Todos Santos that is our destination.

    We are continuing to fix the casita up and can’t wait to see how the plants have grown in the yard since last time we were there. Shouldn’t be too hot because our place is on the Pacific side and gets a nice breeze. But I’ve never been there in June before so we shall see about that.

    And I’m happy we found a housesitter so we know our place in Bend will be well cared for while we’re gone. All is falling into place. Yay!

    oh that sounds so fun! I can’t wait to read your upcoming blog posts! Do you own a home down there that you keep a studio in? Is it super hot down there during that time of year? Please be careful!

    I’m so looking forward to seeing Baja with you! Thanks for taking me along!:)

    My hubby and i are great travel buds. We don’t do it nearly often enough. Traveling to a flea market in June in Wimberley , Tx. Over 400 vendors. Spending the night. Exciting! Be careful. Have fun!

    I think it’s actually supposed to be “them English.”
