This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Celebrating an Irish Holiday …

March, 17, 2015

…in Mexico, and proudly wearing emerald green, the perennial beauty trend this time of year. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Cabo A

People say Cabo San Lucas is a city that never sleeps. I say it’s a town where party-lovers take a siesta from about 8-to-10 pm and 6-to-10 am. During the day, vacationers explore the marina, plaza, and little shops lining the streets, the adventurous go deep-sea fishing and scuba diving, sun-lovers soak up the rays, and extreme partiers migrate to Mango Deck.

In the evening, they all pile into the restaurants. After that, those who love to mingle and dance, rest up and get ready for one of the world’s best block parties. The music gets cranked up après-11pm, and the fun doesn’t stop until the sun peeks over the mountains.

Cabo C

One of my favorite parts of Cabo is the marina. No matter how loud the music is, how many friendly hellos are being called out, or how much dancing is going down, the boats look like they’re peacefully resting. I had fun playing around with settings on my new camera to capture their beauty at night.

Cabo D

And here’s my new ride! Well, in my dreams:) The owner was kind enough to let me borrow his wheels.

Cabo E

I got my pinch-proof Trouvé top in Seattle and my necklace from a cart near the beach in Hawaii. So today I’m combining three countries by wearing green clothing and jewelry from America to celebrate an Irish holiday while vacationing in Cabo.
