January Travel

One of my goals this year is to do more traveling, so each month I hope to do some type of touristy/travel thing and share the experience and photos with you.

For my birthday weekend in January I took two day trips to towns nearby. The first was to Guanajuato City, the capital of Guanajuato State. It has a cool network of narrow streets, alleys and tunnels and is part of the Mexican Independence Trail. Author (poet and playwright) Miguel de Cervantes lived in Guanajuato City when he wrote Don Quixote and many places in the city bare the name. And, finally, it is a UNESCO World Heritage City.

Enjoy some photos of the day

The second day trip was to Santiago de Querétaro(commonly referred to as Querétaro ) and is the capital of Querétaro State. It is a much larger city than San Miguel de Allende (where I currently live) and sports a large, modern mall where we started the day off. Also part of the Independence Trail, the Mexican constitution was drawn up here in 1917. And it is also a UNESCO World Heritage City. The city is a beautiful mix of colonial old world and modern contemporary style.

Wanderlust. Adventurer. Mom. Mentor. Change Agent. Crazy. Servant Leader. Citizen of the World These are all words that describe me - or have been used to describe me. There are many more but we won't get in to those. What is important to know is that at the age of 45, after having a successful career and raising a son, I decided I needed a new challenge and adventure in my life. So I joined the Peace Corps. Portions of this blog were written before this time and chronicle my life during graduate school (again, something I did in my 40s). During my service in Morocco (September 2016 - December 2018) I chronicled my daily life and all it entailed to live as an American female in another country. this is a place for me to capture random thoughts and share my life's journey
