Barbara is now in La Paz, Mexico. She’s vowed not to travel by plane but by using busses, boats, trains and other means for getting from point A to B. (Makes me wonder, is she preparing for the Amazing Race?) When not being hosted by resorts, she’s planning on staying in hostels and couch-surfing, which is a fabulous way to get an authentic taste of everyday life.

Those wishing to travel along vicariously with her can check out her opens in a new windowHole in the Donut travel blog or follow her on Twitter ( opens in a new window@holeinthedonut). She’s also uploading videos to her opens in a new windowYouTube channel and be sure to check out the opens in a new windowcliff divers of Mazatlan clip. Wow!

I met Barbara during the inaugural opens in a new windowTravel Blog Exchange gathering in Chicago last summer. We sat at the same table and discovered we lived the next town over from each other! Small world, considering there were more than 100 travel bloggers at the event.

Happy travels, Barbara!
