Baja Peninsula, a Trip for One

The Baja California peninsula in Mexico is the gorgeous strip of land separating the Gulf of California and the Pacific Ocean, full of cactus forests, otherworldly scenery and charming people. I travelled the winding and beautiful Highway 1 from the Cabo airport to the tiny town of Todos Santos alone, and in an awful rental car, bottoming out in potholes left and right and constantly worrying if I was still on the right road. The entire trip and drive seem like a dreamy chapter of my life that I still can't wrap my head around. It was a trip planned for two, but it snagged on an expired passport, and left me travelling abroad alone for the first time in my life. It was a voyage of new friends and self discovery that still seems like some adventure I read about in a fictitious book.
