Los Cabos – Paradise Between Two Seas

Happily on our way to Cabo

Happily on our way to Cabo

A wonderful start to our day – no traffic, no long lines at security and we are on our way. Lovely conversations with our flight attendants on US Airways. Although they couldn’t be nicer, it was shocking to find out that is has been almost 7 years since America West acquired US Airways and still no contract. It appears to be less about the unions than it is about the desires of the company.

Flight was a breeze and then a short ride over to Avis for our rental car. Oddly enough we got a timeshare sales pitch by one of the Avis agents to virtually eliminate our rental charges if we agreed to go to a 90 minute pitch at a local resort. We only have 5 days and 4 nights in Cabo. I DO NOT want to go to a timeshare pitch at 9:00 a.m. that will most certainly last 3 hours…..No Gracias, Senior.

It is unusually humid in Cabo, which we have never experienced here before, and quite frankly, is taking a huge toll and energy drain on both of us. We enjoyed some time by the pool, and as I sat here in relative paradise, I was struck by how hard it is to turn off the work mind. I’m done. It should be easy, yet it is not. I’m drawn in by strangers’ conversations. WHY is he talking so loudly on his Blackberry? I don’t want to hear. NO ONE wants to hear. Can I tell him to stop? No. Can I ask him to lower his voice? I cannot. So, no matter how far I go, or how hard I try, it is there. Immediacy. Encompassing behavior. Do I do this too? It is probable.

Travel Tip of the Day: Carry along Nalgene bottles. These green-sensitive, cleverly-engineered, lightweight, virtually indestructible, BPA-free drinking bottles are always with us–whether traveling in a foreign country, or venturing into our nearby mountains for a day hike. Interestingly enough, the model we purchased is OTF (On The Fly).

    The hotel looks amazing – and reminds me of the view we had at the hotel I told you about in Spain! And yes, you can tell someone to turn off their phone! : )

      It was fantastic and can’t wait to go back to Spain – will definitely look for your recommendations. Hmmm, not sure about the phone thing since I was in their country and not speaking their language…..I should like to think I could be so bold.
