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.

What size RV to take? This is a personal matter. If you handle your large rig like you were born to it, if narrow curvy roads without shoulders don’t faze you, if you can stop on a dime, if you can go with the flow in city traffic like a New York taxi driver, and […]

Traveling in Mexico by RV led us to wonderful experiences we could only have had that way. Camping by a remote ferry landing on the Gulf of Mexico, deepening our immersion in the ancient ruins of El Tajín by spending the night in the parking lot, having brunch in our motorhome with a taxi driver […]

The first six ways are here. 7. Travel with children – or dogs Especially in Mexico, where people love children so much, yours will draw a lot of positive attention. I haven’t traveled with kids myself in years, but friends assure me that it works all over the world! When Kelly and I were in […]

Guidebooks don’t discuss the single biggest thing that will make your trip a memorable success… meeting people! The joy of connecting, even when it is brief, can make all the difference in how you feel. I noticed that as I wrote this report, I was smiling most of the way through it, remembering so many […]

We spent our first night in the United States with friends who live right near the border. Our far-ranging conversations included a hefty dose of politics. This made me appreciate what a relief it had been to have a time away. I like getting a fresh perspective on the world by being outside of my […]

We continued onward, ever onward. Our attempts to bypass the city of Torreon did not work – in fact, we had to retrace our route twice in one area before the city let go of us – but pretty soon we were northbound again. We crossed into the state of Chihuahua, sometimes called Mexico’s Texas, […]

We passed a hot, noisy night in a city called Matehuala, but the next day we had a more interesting goal in mind. We would go through Saltillo, bypassing nearby Monterrey, Mexico’s third-largest city. Turning west from Saltillo, we would go to Parras de la Fuente, a town of some 25,000. De la fuente means […]

A roadside pottery store, on the Dolores Hidalgo road from San Miguel We hated to look at the calendar, but there was no avoiding it: we had to be home in ten days. It was time to get some kilometers behind us… Most of the road now would be divided highways, with some toll roads. […]

One very interesting feature of San Miguel de Allende, for both Kelly and me, is just barely getting started. Andy Watson, British, and Dorothy Gerhart, American, have lived and traveled extensively outside the U.S. . They met in Taxco some twenty years ago, and always knew that they wanted to return to Mexico to live. […]

They say that you either love or hate San Miguel. Right away, I did both. San Miguel de Allende is a very livable small city, cradled in rolling hills, with much of the city built in traditional architecture. Like nearby Guanajuato and a number of other cities in Mexico, there are restrictions on modern buildings, […]
