More of Mexico

Since Spring is taking her sweet time to arrive, I thought I'd take another virtual trip to Mexico. It really was the trip of a lifetime, and woe to the person who innocently asks me "How was your trip?" I could go on all day.

 You know it's a great trip when you make new friends, eat delicious food, enjoy the beautiful weather, and experience new cultures. And that was every day!

San Miguel de Allende was a charming and beautiful city. Between the cobblestone streets, the colorful buildings, the church bells ringing, the vendors on every corner, and other local life, it was a place I'll never forget. There are many who come here to visit, and never leave, for it's a popular retirement spot for Americans.

One of the things I remember most was the scent of lavender everywhere I went. The gardens were full of it! There was lavender soap and sachets, of course. Now whenever I smell lavender, I'll think of Mexico.
Another highlight was the wine. I do love wine anyway, but to be enjoying the wines of South America while watching the sunset over this beautiful city was extra special.We even took a winery tour that was nothing like I've ever experienced. In fact, it was so special that I'll wait and write a whole post about it.
I hope to return some day to that beautiful spot, and to visit the new friends I made there. In the meantime, I'll hold the memories close to my heart.


  1. Robin, Wow!!! I loved, loved every picture you took!! I live really close to Mexico.. but the border which is not so nice...They say.. the deeper you go the better it becomes. Judging from your pictures that is so the case!!! I have a good friend who lives in the Capital of Mexico.. and often sends us emails of beautiful pictures... Looks like you had a good time.

  2. Oh Robin, these pictures are just gorgeous! I wasn't even aware of this touristy area of Mexico. Usually you just hear about Cancun and Puerto Vallarta. How did you find out about San Miguel de Allende?

  3. It looks like a wonderful place! And that blue sky....

  4. You did such splendid photos. This place have clear skies and really pretty sights! I love its colours and serene calmness. And what a beautiful to enjoy a glass of wine.
