To Baja & Back

The Ultimate Guys Roadtrip

Less than a year ago, “Bachelorette” contestant Brooks Forester and nine friends, including “Bachelorette” contestant Eric Hill, set out on the trip of a lifetime – a 2,062 mile motorcycle ride down to Mexico. The group filmed the great adventure for a new web series - Baja and Back, which launches on Monday, Sept. 1. The series highlights the male bonding, fun and shenanigans that happen on guys’ trips like these.

"Vacation rentals are really the best way to stay for a guys trip," says Brooks Forester. "Whether you're in the pool or just hanging out at the house, everyone is under the same roof having a good time together." Brooks added that the HomeAway property wherethey stayed in Baja was "better than anything we stayed in on the Bachelorette!"
