The other week I received an email from National Geographic Explorer which, among other things, included a countdown of 10 Great Adventure Trips that Give Back. I made it exactly three clicks when I stopped because I just knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt, what my next next trip would be.
Magdalena Bay Sea Turtle Conservation Adventure, you are my newest friend.
This trip combines all the things I love about travel – adventure (it says so, right there in the name), nature, camping, great food, the ability to do something good for the world, and warm weather. Throw in sea turtles and the opportunity for some birding and I’m as good as sold.
Mike and I exchanged approximately 643 rapid-fire emails when I learned of this trip, with each one building our excitement and cementing the idea that this WILL happen. Each morning for the last week we’ve started our day by talking about Mexico. This morning, in fact, we looked at the website again and “oohed” and “aahed” over photos of cozy campsites, handsome turtles, and people having the time of their lives. This did make me about 5 minutes late for work.
Mexico and sea turtles. Coming in Spring 2014.
So tell me. What are YOUR big travel dreams for the next year or so?
