The Road Less Traveled...


Adventures in Mexico or anywhere are endeavors that sometimes require taking the road less traveled. The fun of going through the exercise of taking a small step out of your comfort zone on these roads is that you not only discover something new by going somewhere new, but sometime also finding out more about yourself.  Oftentimes worrying about what is just around the bend prevents you from enjoying the world.  Typically when reflecting back after such experiences you realize what you would have missed if you had not tested yourself and gone on to explore!


Some people are claustrophobic and the canyon pictured above would stop them and some people are stymied with heights like the picture below.  In this case I wouldn't have made it to one without going through the other.  Sadly these aren't the usual barriers that prevent people from visiting Mexico but rather fears about personal safety.  After many trips throughout the country I can't stress enough how safe and comfortable I have felt.  It is a shame that so many people who would greatly enjoy adventures south-of-the-border miss these wonderful experiences from these fears.
