this song. Ah, Mexico. I've never really been but I'd sure like to go.
While that sentence is taken directly from the song linked above, it actually rings true for me. Technically, I've been to Mexico. I stopped there for a few hours while traveling on a cruise with my extended family. But, in my opinion, five hours is not enough to really experience a place. Having grown up in Southern California, I've heard so many great things about Baja California (mostly due to the great surfing there). While many Southern Californians frequent this part of Mexico, I am led to believe that there is still a lot of this area that is relatively untouched. When searching for gorgeous images of this place, I found a few too many amateur photos to think that commercialization has completely set off. This, of course, makes me want to travel there even more!
How I would love to travel down to Baja California, swim in the warm water, hike through the canyons, relax with a good book and eat some actual authentic Mexican food.
