Travel Tuesday: The Beach

Recently a friend invited me to stay with her in Zihuatanejo on the Pacific Coast side of Mexico. After a 7.5 hour overnight bus ride from Celaya, I arrived for a nice, relaxing weekend of doing pretty much nothing.

Zihuatanejo is located in Guerrero State and is north of Acapulco and is a quiet fishing town with protected bays and beaches and yummy local restaurants. The place my friend was staying had an amazing view of sunrise every morning and we enjoyed sunset from the beach.

Women of Guerrero

Throughout the downtown area there are 7 life-sized statues depicting women that represent the seven geographical regions of the state. I captured five of them.

Wanderlust. Adventurer. Mom. Mentor. Change Agent. Crazy. Servant Leader. Citizen of the World These are all words that describe me - or have been used to describe me. There are many more but we won't get in to those. What is important to know is that at the age of 45, after having a successful career and raising a son, I decided I needed a new challenge and adventure in my life. So I joined the Peace Corps. Portions of this blog were written before this time and chronicle my life during graduate school (again, something I did in my 40s). During my service in Morocco (September 2016 - December 2018) I chronicled my daily life and all it entailed to live as an American female in another country. this is a place for me to capture random thoughts and share my life's journey
