It’s okay to run away

Image source. You know that tired old travel quote that is forever bandied around, “Not all those who wander are lost”? It has always wound me up.

15 Reasons to Visit the Coast of Oaxaca, Like, Now

I’m two weeks back from the coast of Oaxaca and my tan is peeling thick and fast. I look patchy and diseased but it’s all worth it because my ten days by the beach were nothing short of wonderful. I had beachside lunches and beers, I lounged around in the company of the nudey gays...
