- I almost lost it there. Woo! That is invigorating. Hey! I'm Julie. I'm an actress, professional goofball, and creator of the show Feeling Peckish. Action! Thanks Julie. I'm headed to Mexico, traveling solo for the first time with the hopes of conquering some of my biggest fears. Nope, nope, nope. What did I get myself into? ♫ I wanted to breathe your air again ♫ Hold it deep in my lungs ♫ I wanted to feel your- Okay. I'm not very good at letting go. If you know me at all, you will know that I am very control-oriented, and that's how I stay sane and level. My goal with this whole trip has been to get out of my comfort zone. And I'm now faced with what I consider to be one of the hardest challenges that I wanted to set up for myself. Which is that of no control. So, I'm in beautiful Ensenada, and I don't have a plan. Okay, so here's Mexico. Like that. There's like a little squiggly arm there, happy face. So we were here, then we went into Mexico City and now, we are all the way right at the border. Just about. Actually we're maybe more here. Eh, what do you care? It's not to scale. Okay, so this restaurant is a little bit planned. I'm gonna be honest with you. A friend of mine has a friend who's here who owns this seafood restaurant which is absolutely phenomenal, so he says. I've never been. They do these kind of like local catch of the day food. So different menu every single day. I have no idea what we're gonna get. Hey, that's like, not planned. Still sticking on the theme. Let's go check it out! ♫ Just get off the couch ♫ Pick up your two feet and come on ♫ Up to me, whoa, whoa ♫ I'm taking you out ♫ Wherever you wanna go ♫ 'Cause you're so fine Pastor. Is that what's it's called? - Yeah. - What does pastor mean? Pastor means whatever this is. ♫ I want you now ♫ And I'll say it to you ♫ Some way somehow ♫ Say it to me ♫ I want you girl Okay, so we went driving for a while. I'm in a new place, you're gonna have to keep up. This is an area called La Bufadora which is like a cliff, and it's this thing. It's really cool. Ooh! So it's kind of like a geyser, but not really. It's like all the water gets pushed into this one tiny little funnel. Like, it's bottle necked, and then goes . And it's called La Bufadora because of the "boof" sound. ♫ I tried to be a different man ♫ A different man would act differently for Today I think I'm gonna go surfing. I've never been surfing before. Ever. Uh, but I know that in this area it's something that people do. And those of my friends that have done it have said it's been very fun. So that's all that I need. I get myself in these situations and then I have too much pride to back down. There's just really big waves, you know? They might be too big actually. So just be prepared. Let's do it! ♫ Yeah, turn around baby ♫ Come on, I wanna see you again ♫ Turn around baby ♫ Turn around baby ♫ Turn around baby, come on ♫ I wanna see you again ♫ Turn around baby ♫ Turn around baby ♫ Turn around baby ♫ Turn around quick ♫ Turn around baby before I get sick ♫ Turn around baby, come on ♫ I wanna see you again ♫ Turn around baby, come on ♫ I wanna see you again ♫ Turn around baby, come on ♫ I wanna see you again ♫ Turn around baby, come on ♫ I wanna see you again ♫ Hey I almost lost it there Woo! That is invigorating. Have you ever been surfing? If you haven't, go. Do it. Find a way. Did you see me though? Like, I looked pretty cool. Right? I feel like I looked cool. All right, we need to get on to the next thing because I know that this is my last day so I gotta go big. I can't just stop here. I'm all warm and cozy now. All done surfing, as you can tell. No, Julie. You're still surfing. But there's a wedding outside my house right now and I'm starving. I wanna go eat but I also just want to watch the wedding. Oh, it's about to get started! Shh, shh, be quiet. Like, her life is changing today. And I get to witness it. I had to close the curtain. I think they saw. The music's starting. Oh my god, oh my god! Oh my god, the groom's right there. Do you think he's gonna cry? I'm gonna cry. I don't know these people. Oh, the bridesmaid's are coming in. This is stupid. This doesn't make sense. But I love these people. There she is! ♫ I wanted to breathe your air again ♫ Hold it deep in my lungs As scared as I was, when there's not strict to-do list, there's no obligation to do anything except exactly what you feel like. Even if it means watching a stranger's wedding for an afternoon. Ensenada, you were beautiful and delicious. And I can't wait to go back. This whole experience has been the trip of a lifetime. I was so nervous about traveling alone and overcoming my fears. But to be honest, I was never alone. There was always someone to laugh with, to eat with or to learn with. And as a result, I have such a deep appreciation for Mexico and Mexican culture as well as the value of getting out of your comfort zone and exploring things that you never would have had the opportunity to. And more than anything, I'm glad it captured it all to share with you. Because pics or it didn't happen. ♫ Seen you soon ♫ There's one thing I got to do ♫ How could I know for sure ♫ Where I'm supposed to be ♫ Whoa, oh, Miri ♫ Yeah, how could I know? ♫ Whoa, whoa, oh, Miri
