I love Mexico and usually suggest it to people as a quick and easy international getaway. As much as I love it though, I’ve only experienced a small sliver of this dynamic country and sadly Mazatlan isn’t included. Reading posts like this one by Raymond help bring the area to life in a fun and decidedly quirky way. Go take a look!
Pam is a master writer, perfectionist, contrarian and soulful ukelele player, although not necessarily in that order. One of her most amazing professional qualities though is to shine a bright light on the profession of writing and to cut through bull faster than anyone I’ve ever seen. In this piece she addresses the problem of not being the first traveler to visit, well anywhere really, and how writers must work harder in order to engage their audience. It’s a great post and everyone should take a look, writers or not.

The Costa Brava region of Spain is one of my favorite destinations and I can’t wait to return next week. In preparation for my trip I stumbled upon this post by Angie detailing the fun options in the region for art lovers. I had forgotten about many of these and I’m reminded of how amazing the Costa Brava is and how much fun it is to visit.
At first you may wonder why I’ve decided to highlight this post, but to me the reason is obvious. Like Erin I too have been out of work, although she’s been dealing with it a lot longer than I have. And like Erin I too will be starting a new job shortly. I can’t explain to you the stress of losing one’s job if you haven’t experienced it for yourself and so I just wanted to congratulate Erin and wish her all the best! Plus she has a great site and a funny, intelligent voice; check her out if you haven’t already.
