Staying in Loreto (not Loretto)

Loreto was a charming place to stay and recover a little. As I discussed in my last entry I had been under eating and this was having detrimental effects on my performance. Well I can tell you that I managed to put that to right. Loreto is the home of the first Jesuit Mission which […]

A tough day running brings diet to the forefront

After a lovely day off at Playa Los Cocos it was time to drag myself away. The sun, sea and sand will be missed but the hospitality and company of Jackie and Dean will be more of a lost… luckily, I know I will see them again in Loreto, 111km further south. My plan was […]

(This is an old blog that didn’t send) Running the Valle de Los Chirios – tots in love!!

**SORRY FOR LACK OF PROOF READING!!!!** I fear that my blog may get repetitive but I can only blame the amazing places I am visiting for that. First it was Washington state, then the Oregon coast. The Redwood Forests and Big Sur came next with south California all being heralded as the most amazing and […]

My stay at Coco Beach

Coco Beach was exactly what I had wanted it to be and more. My palapa looked straight out on to the Bay of Concepcion and was about 10m from the shore line. The water was warm and the sun shone, but that was not what made this stay so enjoyable. It was the people. Having […]

A short and explosive journey to Coco beach

So following two unplanned days rest in the beautiful town of Mulege I am back on the road. The only thing I feel bad about is that it is only for a very short distance!! The Bay of Concepcion starts about 25km south and it has always been my intention to spend a couple of […]


So after all the drama of the last few days I am pleased to report that the drama is over and the phone has been returned. The chap who had it returned from fishing and brought I straight to me… I gave him a little reward and the world has been restored to balance!!! One […]

New and improved site from my Dad – Check it out!

One of the really difficult things to keep on top of while on the road is making sure my blog, photos, videos etc are kept up-to-date and are easily accessible. Well I don’t have that problem!!! Luckily I am incredibly fortunate to have a father who is not only computer literate but can put together amazing websites. A […]

The wheels come off in Mulege!!!

After a lovely first night in Mulege I woke to a catalogue of disasters the next day. Lots of little complications that have kept me here longer than I had anticipated but hopefully with a positive mental attitude and help from newly found friends everything will come together. Let’s go through it all in chronicle […]

Address is La Paz, Baja

This is just a quiet whisper for assistance!! Does anyone happen to know anyone in La Paz, Baja, Mexico? Want to get something posted there. I arrive in a couple of weeks… Thanks in advance Jamie Written on my Nokia Lumia 1020

The night the lights went out in Mulege

I am sitting in a restaurant in Mulege with no light apart from the backlight of my Nokia Lumia 1020 and the light spilling out of the kitchen and powered by a rather noisy generator. We’ve had a power cut! The fact that they have a generator would make one think that this is a […]
