This week brought me back to my happy place — the beach. After two months of past-paced, constant travel and an intense workload of blogging and freelance projects I’ve been teetering towards burnout. I can’t stop meeting deadlines and — let’s face it — I’ve got workaholic American blood in my veins so I wouldn’t want to. However, I can slow down my traveling for a while and so that’s what we’re doing.
Anders and I broke up the long trip north along Peru’s coastline with a three-day stopover in Huanchaco/Trujillo before arriving in Mancora, where we’ll stay for a total of ten days. Afterwards, we’ll move on to yet another beach town in Ecuador, where we’ll spend the holidays and stay put for two weeks. I couldn’t be happier. I am already feeling restored by falling asleep to the sound of crashing waves and waking up to the smell of salt water. I’m ticking things off my to do list, I went diving for the first time in four months, tomorrow we’re going stand up paddleboarding, and next week I want to take a few surfing lessons. Life is good.
Onto this week’s candidates!
