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.

Even though I am back in the US, I still follow some of the blogs written by my online friends in Mexico. One of my favorites is written by John Calypso, who lives in Xico, near Xalapa. It happens that Kelly and I had a great time in Xico, a year or two before we […]

Early in 2003, Kelly and took our small Toyota Dolphin motorhome — aptly nicknamed “Cando” — into Mexico from Texas. We roamed around for weeks, having many adventures… sometimes TOO many for my taste! The trip had a couple of purposes (besides pure fun): one was to get out of Colorado for part of the […]

July 17, 2009 — Recently I put a link to Expedia. com in the sidebar, with my recommendation. I’ll explain more fully here why you may want to use it. I like it particularly  for examining the all-important layover times: It seems that my flights to and from Guadalajara generally involve a stop en route. […]

Kelly and I will be flying to Denver next week, and staying in Colorado for ten weeks before flying back. This is the longest we will have been out of Mexico since we moved here three and a half years ago. But  I’m setting up a whole bunch of articles that will automatically appear, every […]

My friends Alison and Carol just got back from a couple of weeks in Florida, where they got great deals, including a beachfront hotel for $40 a night. Last year they went to Thailand and a couple of other Asian countries, had a great time, and spent way less than most people would believe. I […]

Feb. 15, 2009 – We spent four months in early 1979 roaming around Mexico and Guatemala in a Ford Econoline van. We were able to get away from work at that time because I was working part-time as a fill-in librarian and Kelly was doing remodeling and other construction. If I remember correctly, we spent […]

Feb 10, 2009 — Kelly and I drove our old Ford Econoline van all over Mexico and Guatemala for four months… let’s see. 2009 minus 1979, can it really be 30 years ago? That’s the silhouette of Lake Atitlan in the background, with some Guatemalan ruins atop our van, which Kelly was driving fast across […]

June 15, 2008 – A while back, I got an email from the folks at Mexico Hospitality, a new service starting up all over Mexico. It sounds like a great way for people anywhere to exchange homes. I poked around the Lake Chapala section of the site, where homeowners have signed up. I knew several […]

May 30, 2008 — If you’ve ever endured a long distance bus ride in the United States, you may not be inclined to think that taking one in Mexico could be a much nicer experience. But it really can be. While Americans will typically fly or drive their own cars in the US for long […]

July 25, 2007 — We got home last night, from a terrific two-month road trip: family in Idaho, friends in Arizona and Colorado, and about a week exploring the Ozarks. We haven’t driven around Mexico in the rainy season before, and the countryside is beautiful, so green everywhere, with red-tile-roofed villages in the distance looking […]
