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.

October 9, 2006 — I recently received this email from a reader of this blog, a woman from the US who had just gotten home from a trip to Mexico. She and her husband had flown into Guadalajara, come out to the Lake Chapala area and taken us out to dinner, then gone by bus […]

Feb. 6, 2006 — I’ve just done some math regarding the costs of living and traveling in Mexico for us in December and January. These were not exactly usual months, but they give at least some idea. I’ve left out any bills that related to things back in Colorado or to our business. Also, even […]

May 3, 2005 — As I totaled up what we had spent last month while living in Mexico, I realized our food and lodging costs would make an interesting blog entry. I hope this might encourage some people to consider living in Mexico themselves, who might have thought it was beyond their reach. Of course, […]
