I travel a lot, but it had been too long since I took a beach vacation. But when opportunity knocked, I opened the door! With cheap nonstop flights from Frontier Airlines out of Denver to Cabo, it was my chance. My first vacation in two years was a wonderful traditional beach vacation. I took advantage of all the great things Cabo has to offer, and, as usual, I wanted to share tips with the world. So, here's my destination guide to Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, Mexico!
The Beaches and Waters of Cabo
After a year of travels followed by three years of writing and editing, the story emerges of a yearning seeker who trades safety and the American Dream for fearlessness and a new way of living. Worn from the paradigm of a 9-5 office job, an early marriage, and a lack of spiritual connectedness, the author’s world is turned upside-down after an arrest, a divorce, and leaving the only career he knows in search of something more.
As a new paradigm of connecting with himself, his surroundings, and his experience emerges, the writer sets out on a quest to circle the planet, piecing together an around-the-world path with a series of one-way flights and hosts he finds online, who graciously offer nights on their couches to him for free. In the process, he discovers an efficient and groundbreaking method of cheap travel with technology and mindfulness, but more importantly, discovers how intention and unconditional love makes the world go 'round.
I am really excited to be a speaker and workshop presenter at SITSum Atlanta next week! No matter how many couches or beds upon which one has slept worldwide, a night at the Atlanta Midtown W in Atlanta is an object of magnificent gratitude. My workshop will blur the lines between tourist and local by linking them together and creating a cultural experience for all parties involved. It also covers how technology and social networks make that happen on both ends of the experience. Check me out the schedule. I'm sure I'll write more about this next week after I return from the experience!
