A Quick Update

In 2010, we moved back to the small town in Colorado that I never stopped missing while we lived in Mexico. Now I sometimes miss Mexico, but I wouldn't travel as freely as we did when we were there, camping out in remote areas and so forth.

Mexico today is in a period of change, and in many ways it is more dangerous now. That said, I have plenty of American friends who still live there very happily, just taking a few more precautions than they did in the past.

Just to say!


Visit Expedia…

Expedia is my favorite place to book airfare, and they handle hotels, car rentals, cruises, etc. I like the organization of the site for figuring out what flights I want. Click on the suitcase to take a look.

I was very pleased to win an award for this blog! Even better for you: click through for lists of all sorts of award-winning travel blogs.

June 28, 2005 — Last night Kelly and I had dinner with a friend of ours here in Colorado. She is here part of the year, at her house in Italy at times, and recently got back from living on the Oregon coast for several months as a house exchange for her house in Italy. During her time in Oregon, she went to Mexico for about a month around Christmas.

I had been looking forward to asking her about this sort of lifestyle. “I love it!” she exclaimed. “I’d get bored if I stayed in one place for as long as a year.” She commented that there are drawbacks, such as bad tenants, or being a little scattered sometimes, but overall she was totally enthusiastic about the rhythms of her life. She’s done this for years.

Kelly and I have noticed that by having spent half a year in Mexico, it feels like we are getting a lot more living into the same time. We like this.

Our friend commented that the people she has known who have successfully lived outside their own countries for long periods of time have all been people who have absorbing creative work that they take with them, whether it’s painting or other art forms, writing, or whatever. We do fit that category, as she does too.

Food for thought in considering our Mexican plans.
