I hope you all didn’t miss me too much. I’m back from my vacation in Mexico. I think my blog was left in good hands with some awesome guest writers. Thanks everyone.

I’ve gotta say that Mexico wasn’t really what I was expecting. We were staying in a small resort town that was really dominated by American and Canadian influence. So it wasn’t the big party scene, nor was it an authentic Mexican experience. Instead it was a town that seemed to be primarily relying on tourist money. Being a tourist or beach bum is still a good time though.

Somehow we managed to be there for the coldest weather they had received in years, but that wasn’t so bad. Since it snowed in Vancouver while we were gone, I’ll gladly take some partial cloudy days and wind. Apparently the day we left it cleared up and the wind died down. At least it wasn’t too hot to enjoy things.

Overall it was a very enjoyable vacation. I got to spend some quality time with people I really care about. The memories will last a lifetime.

Anyways, I’ll share some more of my experience in the coming weeks. For now I’ve got to catch up on all my e-mails and comments.

Again I was quite fortunate to keep getting plenty of mentions on other blogs while away. I know that is partly due to having some great guest posts, but it’s also because of how supportive fellow bloggers are. I’m going to have to buy a lot of people a beer at FinCon13 :)
