Travel Blogs from La Paz
After an early start and a couple of hours drive on a empty, dead straight road through endless bush we hit Cancun airport and some serious culture shock. Cancun was like any European airport (though you still had to put your toilet paper in the bin). We had a bit of a shopping spree - Time Magazine, Cadburies chocolate (one bar each, named), an …
Entrar en la Paz es literalmente entrar en la paz! Todo en esta ciudad es tranquilo, quieto y pacifico…solo la brisa intensa que sopla desde las 6 de la tarde, pone movimiento a la quietud del lugar. El calor intenso del dia con su también intenso y fuerte sol, se combina con el suave ondular del mar azul del Golfo de California contribuyendo …
I woke to the sun rising and shining straight in room at about 6:30 it was horribly bright. Brock had already gotten up becuase he copped the brunt of the sun.

... like the pattern on a tennis ball. If you began at Iceland and travelled south, you could follow it down the centre of the Atlantic Ocean, around the bottom of Africa, and across the Indian and Southern oceans and into the Pacific just below Australia; there it angled across the Pacific as if making for Baja California (where we are heading now) before shooting up the west coast of the United States to Alaska.
