Baja has been an amazing experience in all respects. I loved every bit of the scenery – it was so diverse and beautiful. I loved the people – they were so sweet and welcoming. Contrary to all warnings I heard from people in the US, I never felt unsafe.
At times, I hated the the traffic on the shoulderless HWY 1. At times the headwind was so persistent it would discourage me and make me feel I fight a purposeless battle with the forces of nature.
Would I come back? – totally YES!
