29 August – Day 38

Playa Ventura, Mexico to Puerto Escondido, Mexico

Distance: 271kms (time on bike = 4.5 hours)

Puerto Escondido is our last beach stop for a while… so we happy to see that the beach was very swimmable! We left Playa Ventura early, which meant slightly easier riding (not as hot and less traffic). It also meant that we arrived in Puerto Escondido at noon.. so we had the whole afternoon to just swim/relax/look around. It seems funny to me that I’m excited about a whole afternoon of chilling out etc – but after almost forty days on the road, even an afternoon off can seem like a luxurious break. Effectively, motorbike riding is our “job” for now – and even when you like your job, some unexpected time off is usually well received!!

There are more tourists here – and the first gaggle of white people we’ve seen for a while. Which means it’s possibly less authentically Mexican. But it also means they serve soy flat whites… ah, you win some, you lose some!!

  1. Lauren, I know exactly what you mean about the joy of some “time off” from the job of riding. I took today in off in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, and went sailing.

  2. Happy birthday to you (in a singing voice) ….. I waited till today as its the 31st ‘over there’ ……. Hope you have had a really super birthday Adrian
