It’s a wrap!  Summer has passed and back to school is here!  I hope many of you had a summer filled with new adventures and inspiration!  Our biggest adventure was a road trip from the SF Bay Area to the Northern Baja region of Mexico.  We spent five days just 45 minutes south of San Diego in a village called La Misión.

La Misión is primarily known for having one of the best surf breaks in northern Baja.  It is a village of approx. 1,000 inhabitants and several expatriate communities filled with Americans, Canadians, Europeans and Australians.  We learned that there are several young families living in this region enjoying a relatively low cost of living, modern amenities, and access to some of the best beaches and outdoor activities in the northern Baja.  We quickly fell in love with this area for the friendliness of the locals, the beauty of the terrain, access to interesting rural and urban settings, like Ensenada, delicious food, a vibrant culture, and perfect climate!  It reinvigorated our longing to see the world, to look beyond our immediate horizon, and to experience a new community, a new way of life and all the variety and diversity that comes with it!  I hope you had a chance to get reinvigorated this summer whether it was through travel, visiting a new museum, reading a good book, watching a movie, or visiting a restaurant that sparked your senses and opened your mind to a new place, people, or culture.

Here are some new resources to ignite global citizenship in your community!  Many of them are featured on Facebook.  So don’t forget to “like” World Wonder and get weekly tips and resources.
