The Fun Starts “Just Now”

The Fun Starts “Just Now”

We often forget about the variety of differences between home and the rest of the world. Part of the fun of traveling is seeing just what life looks like for other people, in other parts of the world. Sometimes, the differences are hard to spot due to a common...
Guanajuato, Pueblo Magico, Mexico

Guanajuato, Pueblo Magico, Mexico

Pulling into the obscure labyrinth of  streets in this historic city was an otherworldly experience. The warren of tunnels and overhanging buildings rendered are GPS immediately useless and within minutes we were gleefully lost. We later learned that the tunnels were...
