Why do I resonate with Baja so much?
I’ve asked myself this a lot. I mean I know the answer....I was raised on it. I find peace in Baja where I don’t find it other places. It’s my zen.
I have to laugh at myself sometimes. Oh man...😬I’m such a freak I’ve gone and dedicated an entire Instagram page to it. What must people think? #sorrynotsorry 🤷🏼♀️
What else am I suppose to do with all the amazing photos and videos?
While I enjoy the luxurious fun that Valle de Guadalupe offers and adore a Cabo resort....there is my true love...
A tomboy by nature; I relate to the quiet and natural adventure that is the majority of Baja. I like being alone, being in open space and feeling one with nature.
I love the sensation of being on a motorcycle; speeding down a dirt trail or road all while feeling the wind in my face and hair.
There is nothing better than surfing alone or with only a few close friends...even if the surf is blown out.
I honestly don’t care if we actually catch dinner...I love fishing on a lone beach with just the sound of birds and the kids playing (or shouting at me) in the distance. *
I like being in the middle of the desert and finding true disbelief in the geography and topography of the peninsula...even if it does result in a flat tire or getting stuck.
I like the military stops because I get to ask the officers about their lives. How long have they served in the military? How long have they served in Baja? Do they have families? 💫
I could go on and on.
I often wish that I could myself down more when I am home in Southern California. That I could stop more and see the magic of existence like I do when I am in Baja.
So the question (and challenge) for myself today...
How do I resonate more with the Sarah that I am when I am in Baja...how can I be more her when I am not there?
Personally I think if I can connect more wholly with that person...I’ll be a better person overall.
What makes you a better person? It’s Baja for me!
Baja California is one of the largest states in Mexico, and one of the most scenic. One of the best places to see different types of whales, this was the first time I managed to see humpbacks (previous attempts in New Zealand had failed) which was very exciting. Buses in this region are particularly expensive, so I would recommend renting a car to drive around Baja. We travelled the whole area, starting from Los Cabos and ending in Tijuana
I usually don’t drink sodas, but I have to try ‘natural taste’ Mexican Coca-Cola. They did taste different, lighter than regular cokes in the United Sates! (Most of the Mexican Coke is made with cane sugar instead of high-fructose corn syrup) #mexicancoke#tijuanamexico#bajacaliforniamexico 🇲🇽

I have a long time love of the AAA Map of Baja California. *
I’ve spent years studying it’s lines and the roads on it. It’s by far my favorite map of Baja.
I was not happy when they discontinued its production. Hands full of every copy they would give me at the AAA office; I certainly gave them my thoughts on the matter!
This map is my guide. My guru. Torn edges, coffee stained, scotch tape on worn folds; it whispers secrets to me. Tells me to take detours down unknown roads.
“Go to San José De Magdalena,” it muttered this time. “It’s what you wanted last summer in the dust in the heat...but you didn’t have enough gas. Go now.” The map urged.
So we turned. Up the paved road we drove and I gasped at the majestic beauty. It was as if we had stepped back in time and been transported to Central America. Tropical farmlands set against mountainous canyons. I had for certain died and gone to heaven. This was my kind of place*
“Put the tablets down and look out the window!!” I grumbled to the children while following a hand painted sign that read museo.
There we met the benevolent Adrian Mesa with his impressive collection of junk. It was there that our entire family could have spent at least a month.
Squeezed within one tiny room was an elaborate collection of toys, pesos, cameras, typewriters, crystals, gems, minerals, canons, camera, guitars, lanterns, record players and so much more.
Adrián showed us many of his old trinkets, then we parted ways in pure Baja amazement! His museum was one of those Baja surprises that satisfies the soul. 😍 Next time you drive past that sign that says San José De Magdalena, take my map’s word for it and go! #baja#bajacalifornia#bajacaliforniamexico#travelbaja#familytravelguide#bajafamily#explorebaja#ilovebaja#beautifulbaja#idratherbeinbaja#bajatravelguide#amomsguide#amomsguidetotravel#amomsguidetotraveling#amomsguidetotravelingbaja#mexico#familytravel#sanjosedemagdalena#sanjosedemagdalenabcs#bcs#santarosaliabcs#bajacaliforniasur#bajaAAAmap

As I look out the window in Hood River, it's pouring rain and 41°F outside. Already missing the radiant sun, blue skies and jurassic mountains of Baja.
Here is a picture of me reaching the bottom of a classic long, crumbly descent on a Baja 4x4 road. Hopefully soon I'll be making the same face on the slopes of Mt Hood.
Gonna enjoy a little more time away before I putt the truck back down to Odin Falls and dive head first into the 2020 NWOBS season and yurt livin'.
