I’m back from Mexico! I had a good vacation. I’m relaxed and rejuvenated; I’m ready to get back to work, get back to Thousandaire, and get back to building my new website that is still a few weeks (or months) away from completion.

Here are some pictures from my trip:

A Week Vacation is Awesome

I took a full week to go to Mexico with my girlfriend. We had some great food, hung out by the biggest pool in the entire country of Mexico, did some snorkeling, and just had a great time.

I didn’t have any access to work, websites, or even email. Heck, I had zero contact with America whatsoever. We could have gone to war with China while I was on that trip and I wouldn’t have heard about it unless someone told me.

Before this trip, I felt frustrated with work, both my day job and my websites. I needed a week off to clear my head and get myself back into the game.

I’m pretty sure it worked.

Ease Frustration with a Vacation

If you are feeling frustrated with your life, you might want to take a vacation. It doesn’t have to be a week long and it doesn’t have to be in Mexico. It could simply be a 3-day weekend reading your favorite book.

I just recommend you turn off your cell phone and ignore your email, twitter and facebook. When you go on vacation, really GO ON VACATION.

Readers: When is the last time you took a vacation? Where did you go and what did you do? Did you get to swim with a turtle named Michelangelo? Did you go with a lady as beautiful as Tag?
