Puerto Vallarta: A New Perspective

It’s Sunday afternoon and I’m on the first of two flights flying home after a whirl wind trip to Puerto Vallarta Mexico.  I’ve just spent the last four days making new friends on a press trip, immersing myself in local culture, forcing myself to try new things from foods to adventures, and I couldn’t be more content.  I’m tired, a wee bit sunburnt and ridiculously happy.  IMG_2109

Once again convinced that travel is truly good for the soul.  Travel allows you to leave your real life behind, see how others live, count your blessings for all you have, pay it forward in little ways, make new connections with countless people, and re-connect with those you love the most.


I am so thankful for each and every travel experience.  For the chance to learn, explore, make memories and laugh.  I’m not even back at home yet, and already I’m dreaming of my next adventure.  Where will your next travels take you?

    Mexico is a fabulous place and the people make it what it is. I have only discovered a potion of it and hope to visit more places soon.
