Veracruz state- police encounters!

Veracruz state- police encounters!

Mexico has 31 States and one Federal District. Many of them are named the same as the capital city. Leaving the city of Puebla and driving through the state of Puebla we crossed into the state of Veracruz on our way to the city of Veracruz. In Estado Veracruz we had...
Itza-Popo: Volcano area, followed by silence!

Itza-Popo: Volcano area, followed by silence!

Outside of Mexico City lies a sleeping giant.  Volcán Popocatapetl lies waiting to cause destruction again.  Popo slept for centuries, but awoke in 1994 and has spewed ash, rocks and steam every few years since then.  Next to Popo lies Volcán Iztaccihuatl which is...
Mexico City-  a huge city, full of fun.

Mexico City- a huge city, full of fun.

The fifth largest city in the world seemed a little intimidating to us.  But there were a few things there we wanted to see and do.  Yet there were a few things we were afraid of: traffic, crime, expenses, traffic and crime (yes, I meant to repeat that! HAHAHAH).  We...
Lago Zirahuen- a few days at the lake!

Lago Zirahuen- a few days at the lake!

Upon suggestion from other travelers and a person that lives in Michoacan, we decided that Lago Zirahuen might be a good destination.  It has been a long time since we aired up the stand-up-paddleboard and this lake seemed like a possibility to use the board!  We...
Patzcuaro and Isla Janitzeo

Patzcuaro and Isla Janitzeo

Visiting Patzcuaro felt a little bit like camping at a farm! The place we chose to stay had a wide variety of farm animals roaming free on the large property. The location was beautiful, on a grassy hill above the city. We had sweeping lake views and big shady trees...

Tula-

When we finally left San Juan Teotihuacan, we didn’t go far. Just a short drive away is the archeological site of Tula in the town of Tula de Allende. It is often overlooked, because Teotihuacan is so popular. But we wanted to take the time to look at the Toltec...
New Years and New Plans

New Years and New Plans

We left our stunning lakeside retreat at Lagos de Colon and headed for San Cristobal for Christmas. New Years called for new plans, but we had fallen in love with this city on the way south, and heading north found her no less magical. That is other than the fireworks...
Media Luna-

Media Luna-

Near the town of Rio Verde in the desert of San Luis Potosi, Mexico there is a strange phenomenon.   As you drive towards it you can feel the desert temperatures climb, and then the humidity begins to rise.  The first sign that you are getting near is a swift flowing...
In the cool mountains of Mexico

In the cool mountains of Mexico

After a great time exploring the abandoned mining area and the wonderful pueblo of Mineral de Pozos we were ready for a change.  We left the high desert and headed up into the mountains.  The Sierra Alvarez area has some great opportunities for boondocking (off grid...
Guanajuato activities and goodbye!

Guanajuato activities and goodbye!

Guanajuato was a great city for us to spend four weeks in.   When we promised ourselves that we would be back, we had no idea that we would enjoy it so much.  In addition to our Spanish language classes at La Adelitas we always found events going on and things to fill...
