We were strictly forbidden to drive from San Jose Del Cabo airport to Todos Santos after 4pm because the road was under construction. I think it must have been 4.30pm before we got our car and a slightly nervous two models got in to be told by our driver that it was ok. If you can drive in India you can drive any where. Well Sukumar i´m glad to say you were right but frankly i was too tired to care by that stage. lol A big thank you to Sukumar from Anne and me. Greatly appreciated and to all the guys for hanging about the airport with us to make sure we got our ride. Love you all. =)
The drive down was interesting to say the least but the most memorable parts were the cactus silhouetted in the sunset and the wandering cows and starved horse stunned in the traffic head lights. Only on my return to the airport about one week later did i fully understand why we shouldn’t have driven so late on the road but i for one am glad i did it both ways safe. When hopefully the high way to Todos Santos is finished in May 2012 the drive down will be a nice one. Ocean on one side and mountains on the other.
Above you will find a few photo examples on the ride down and one of what the finished highway will look like. Nice and smooth and long. Photos of the actual road at the minute are censored for being so horribly horrible. Seeing is believing. The other two photos are of the daily bumpy local paths to beach were you have to let the air out of the tyres on your vechile if you want a smoothish drive over 20mph. The other is me beside what i consider a monster truck. Not seen very often on my side of the pond.
I had the time of my life is the song that is playing all the way through my travels to Mexico and back. Well in my mind any way. As i jet home to reality i wonder why can´t dreams last forever.
So Zoe i owe it all onto you. =)
I was very fortunate to fly the routes i did this year as i got to see some amazing new landscapes. Being a seasoned traveler i´ve learned to keep my eyes peeled and it´s something that pays off.
So on this travel i was lucky to see Germany´s capital Berlin for the night. I flew over Iceland on my way to the USA and saw the icebergs for the first time. Amazing! Unfortunately the polar bears didn´t see me waving but my heart was there. I scrambled over my neighbours on the plane just to get a quick snap shot but the images doesn´t quite capture the beauty of such an amazing place.
My other ariel views are images flying into LA and down to San Jose del Cabo. I found the landscapes on the way down to mexico extremely interesting. Am i weird! lol My last image was actually my first taken of the fires in Ibiza. In proportion to the island this was a pretty big one lasting almost a week.
Anyway now that we have the plane window photography discussion over we can move onto part two.
Mangos and Passion fruit never tasted as good as they do here. Fruit heaven I,ve gone and died. As a result of tasting so good there was no time for photographs. You would understand if you had one to. You should’ve come to Baja California this year peeps. We,re in heaven.
