My Heart Overflows With Gratitude

I am writing this while lounging in a hammock that is strung up next to the open air kitchen that is at our cabin in Sayulita Mexico. It is sunny, it is warm, there is a slight breeze, and a variety of tropical birds sing in the trees.

In respect to how I am accustomed to spending my days this is quite surreal especially when I stop and think that this is just day #2 of a yearlong adventure.

My heart overflows with gratitude that I am able to do this.

The final months, weeks, and days of leaving our home of ten years in Fort Collins where very hectic and busy. There was just so much to be done in order to get ready for this trip. So much in fact that it would not have been possible without help from others.

I am humbled by just how much support and help we received from friends and family.

And I do hope that everyone who did help knows how much we appreciate the assistance they gave us. As we travel I will work to find ways to help others as well as show gratitude to those back home.

For now I will just say “Thank You” to those who helped us and continue to help us as we deal with the final details remotely.
(You know who you are.)

  1. One of my favorite places I’ve traveled to is just north of Sayulita…it’s called San Pancho or San Francisco. If your looking for a fancy dinner try La Ola Rica. What a great place to start your year!


    1. We do hope to get up to San Pancho while we are here. Not sure about fancy dinners though because a year of travel means sticking to a thrifty budget. But always good to get a recommendation.


  2. Yo, Daryle:

    Totally excellent, Dude!

    The more I read about your adventures, and the more I think about it, the MORE I’m getting interested in travelling, myself! I even got relaxed a bit just READING your post!

    Austin is starting to “warm up,” literally and figuratively for me. Have been studying up about importing products from manufactures, who very well might be overseas, private labeling the products, and selling on Amazon. I’ve learned a LOT about Amazon in the last 3 weeks, with SO much more to go!

    Keep charging … and relaxing … and look for good products for me to sell while you’re over there!!



    1. Thanks Dale. The first thing we’ve wondered why it is not available much in the US is apple soda pop. It is everywhere here in Mexico and it is pretty tasty. Great for washing down a spicy taco. But I doubt that is what you are thinking. I’ll keep an eye out when we are in Asia and Africa though.
