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

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,...

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...

Many years after my first ride in the Cañada de la Virgen with Coyote Canyon, I’ve reconnected with my intense love of horses and horseback riding. There’s really nothing like it. Cañada de la Virgen is still one of my favorites....

I’m a high intensity kinda gal. Two-thirds perfectionist and one-third superwoman, I think I can do it all. Some might read me as a workaholic because apart from the commercial work that I do for others I constantly have a myriad of projects of my...

Living in Mexico, it has been hard to understand Donald Trump's appeal. From abroad, surrounded by friends with similar political views, Trump appears xenophobic, reactionary, and petulant while offering few real policy proposals. So why is he polling so well? The answer is that Trumpism...

There’s nothing I love more than delving into nature while traveling. One of the great parts about Louisiana is the beautiful terrain and biodiversity. Much of Louisiana’s land is comprised of coastal marshes and swamp from the Mississippi River Delta, but the highlands have...

Facebook is a major distraction. As much as I love staying up to date with my friends and favorite businesses, Facebook can be a major time suck …and that’s why, for me, the newsfeed had to die....

Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, is Louisiana’s biggest party of there (though that’s a hard title to give considering how those in Louisiana love to laissez le bon temps rouler.) Stemming from the fasting tradition of Lent, Mardi Gras is the party before all partying...

People think it’s glamorous and easy. It isn’t. Freelancing is difficult enough to begin with and traveling while you do it makes it all the more problematic. It can be challenging to juggle projects and deadlines, changing scenery and schedules, and most of all to...

We had some friends swing through San Miguel de Allende in their 1985 Volkswagen Westfalia Vanagon Camper. They are heading down to Central America - two parents, two kids ages 10 & 12, and their trusty steed, Wesley....

Carrigan's is part of Birmingham's burgeoning culinary scene. The city was ranked #1 in 2015 on Zagat's list of America's next hot food cities. ...
