My job is terrible. Every 7 years they make you leave for 8 weeks. They call it a sabbatical. The only bonus to making me stay away from work is that they pay me during this time. If they're not going to let me work, then I'll show them, and tack a week of vacation on the end and stay away for 9 weeks. Take that work =P So I can't go to work for 2 months. What to do with myself? Motorcycle trip of course. Big road bike (FJR1300) or little sumo (WR250X)? I can go far on the FJR, and I have in the past. This time I think I want to do something a little different. I want to have adventure and be able to go where ever I want, whenever I want. Sumo it is. Where to go? I have a timeshare that works on a point system and I can go anywhere in their system as long as there is room. This means I look for somewhere I can ride to and back while taking my time. Puerto Vallarta fits that bill nicely. I book the resort for 2 weeks after my sabbatical starts. That gives me plenty of time to meander on down and see some sights. I have 3 solid dates. 1 - when sabbatical starts. 2- When I need to be in Puerto Vallarta. 3 - When I need to be back to work. I have some stuff on my bike and I have my passport and debit cards. Sounds like enough planning to me. This trip has already completed and I'm back home but I would like to give back to this great forum and share my adventures with you. Have a look at some teaser pics.
