We welcomed the new year with some good food and a camp fire in a remote camp spot in Anza Borrego State Park in the California desert.

We crossed the border into Mexico at Tecate on January 2nd, and headed straight to El Rosarito on the Pacific coast to enjoy the local specialty: the lobster Puerto Nuevo. We had a fantastic lunch and ate too much and then headed south to Ensenada where we spent our first night in Mexico.

The weather was still on the cool side for our first few days (17-18C) but it was sunny and pleasant.

Over the next several days we continued our way south, and camped on the coast, meeting some locals (donkeys), and eating tacos. Once in the desert of the Vallee of Los Ciros the temperature went up slightly, we checked out the cave paintings near Catavina and then headed towards the Sea of Cortez to Bahia de Los Angeles where we spent a couple of days enjoying the beach and watching the pelicans fly by and fish. In Bahia de Los Angeles we met and chatted with other overlanders / travelers from Ontario, Washington State, and 2 couples from Switzerland!

One of the couples from Switzerland had been on the road travelling the world for 15 years! It was truly inspiring.

Today (January 8), we are in the oasis town of San Ignacio in Baja California Sur. The town has a lovely little town square and an old Spanish mission.

Tomorrow we head towards the sea of Cortez and the fantastic beaches of Bahia de Conception.

“There’s only one place I want to go, and it’s to all the places I’ve never been to.”

This marks our third week on the road, and we are finally getting into the slower “chill” pace we’ve been craving. As we continue to head South, and the weather continues to warm up, we are pretty sure our pace will keep slowing way down!
