Guys, I'm, like, soooo vaccinated right now!
In just a few days, I'm headed to Thailand. Then Sri Lanka. Then Vietnam. Then... who knows? And, at the last minute, I decided to do the responsible thing and get my vaccines.
If You Think Kids Who Live on Dirt Floors Are Happy and "Have Everything They Need," You SERIOUSLY Need to Check Your Privilege.
I spent several weeks traveling in Costa Rica an Panama this year -- and, obviously, I met a lot of expats. Many of whom were total new-age hippies.
As individuals, they are wonderful people. But spend enough time (say, over five minutes) with a group of them, and one will inevitably launch into a "life is so much better without money" monologue.
Three weeks ago, I had never heard of a place called Bonaire. But then, one day, I decided to Google "world's best shore diving," and Bonaire kept showing up -- usually in the number one spot -- on every list.
So I did an image search for Bonaire, fell in love, and booked a flight.
As my departure rapidly approached, I checked the CDC website to read their recommendations for water and food safety in Bonaire.
Like many things, the government got it all wrong.
Many years ago, I visited Bath, England -- a place of water, life, and healing. Upon one of the fountains there was engraved, "Aqua est Vida." Water is life.
And plastic is death.

Believe it or not, the moon was nearly full the night Justin took this photo -- but the moon set around 2am, and Justin had the chance to capture this beauty.
I strongly believe that everything should be big, silly and over-the-top. Go big or go home, right?
That's why I spent 10 days in Mexico for Thanksgiving and my birthday. Because what better way to usher in another year? (And also because I found a sweet deal on Virgin America -- $264 for a nonstop, roundtrip flight from San Francisco to Los Cabos.)
Despite evidence to the contrary
I am not a party person. Like, at all. So I almost decided Cabo wasn't the place for me -- it's got a reputation for party, party party.
But. When I found out about the tiburon ballenas (whale sharks) that I was almost guaranteed to see in La Paz, just two hours from Cabo San Lucas, there was no more question. I was going.
