Mittie’s Blog: Travel Tips, Secrets and Stories.

We’ve seen a lot of Mexico. After 9 years exploring, you’d expect no less. But Mexico is an enormously diverse country, topographically and culturally. That’s why, after all this time, I keep stumbling across gems....

Do you know Patagonia? The huge ice fields, the boat cemeteries, the Southern right whales and the Route of the Seven Lakes? There are so many things to discover in one of the most southern parts of the world. Take your down jacket, put on...

For all the ways that marketing is growing and changing, there are a lot of fumbles going on out there on the worldwide web. And, I get it. People feel overwhelmed by the choices and limited in both understanding of the platforms and the time...

In the desert, the mid-day sun sucks the breath from our lungs. It’s so hot and dry, we can barely breathe. My skin feels like someone else’s – so dry, my own touch feels foreign....

We crashed the Rover. Fortunately, no one was hurt. It wasn't raining, but the road was wet. We hit a slick spot while exiting the highway - the Rover first swerved and then, as I countered to stay on the asphalt, it spun 180 degrees,...

Fairly well known by residents of Bangkok, the Amphawa Floating Market retains some of the traditional river culture, while allowing the trendier nature urbanites need to slip in at almost every opportunity. Once upon a time, the river - and the market - looked a...

Inspired by the current writing workshop that I’m teaching, I want to share why teaching a class can be a great asset for many freelancers, and how to do it. If you don’t want to generate new business, don’t like the idea of teaching or...

Sad about the departure of our Vanamos friends after their month-long stay in San Miguel, we were reminded what it takes to be a good guest. It was such a delight to have them here and, until next time, we will majorly miss them....

The dos and don'ts of couple travel. How to stay happy, supportive and respectful when travel or freelancing challenges put your personality to the test....

Sean and Mittie appear in the San Miguel Adventure Tourism Video made by Consejo Turistico: A hot air balloon ride over the city center, ziplining over a canyon, walking over a hanging bridge, horseback riding and 4-wheeling adventures....

Sean and Mittie appear in the San Miguel Art and Tradition Tourism Video: walking and exploring art throughout the town square, the Jardin, Bellas Artes and Institutio Allende, Santuario Atotonilco, Fabrica La Aurora and Cañadita de la Virgin....

Ablu Botanica is a family-run artisanal bath, body and beauty company founded in San Miguel de Allende. I had the pleasure of interviewing Kate Lowenstien, co-owner of Ablu, about their products, practices and more. ...

We just enjoyed some time in Costalegre, soaking up the sun and sea. Costalegre is located in Jalisco, between Bahia de Chamela and Playa del Oro. While there, we happened upon 3 little towns that we really liked. Quiet, relaxed and spectacularly beautiful, these low-season...

Tequila, Jalisco is a unique place. Like the champagne region of France, Tequila must come from Tequila region of Jalisco. Los Altos, the highlands, of the Mexican state of Jalisco are home to the world’s tequila production and are we ever thankful for that! Aside...

I don’t like to pass up a good opportunity, even if it means I have to change plans at a minute’s notice or try something completely new. So, when one of my freelance writing clients told me about his brain child, an amazing luxury travel...

Some of you may have read my previous article on Chilcuague (Gold Root in English) and if you have, you know I’m a fan. This regional root is rarely talked about, even in the few Mexican states it’s grown, and outside – well, it’s just...

The longer I stay away from America, the stranger and more complex it becomes for me. I return to the same streets, the same house, the same city that I lived in for most of my life, and though in many ways it’s completely ordinary,...

The 3rd annual Magictown Music Festival went off without a hitch. This incredible festival brings musicians from Mexico, the United States and beyond to raise money for Casa de los Angeles, the low income child care center and orphanage in San Miguel de Allende. Art...

As we've taken a closer look at the engine and the electronics, we've noticed some faulty mechanical and electrical work - anomalies. We've always been eager to continue moving forward after something fails on the road in Mexico or Central America but some of these...
