The Sunday Traveler~Trip Down Memory Lane

The Sunday Traveler has been mulling over the last few years. Significant years of adventure and growth that started here in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico four years ago. All of a sudden I was on my own, a bit lost, and I could think of nothing more that I needed to do than travel back to Mexico. I had never been in San Miguel, and I spent a month here wandering around exploring in awe.

I usually had no specific plans or targeted place to go ahead of time. The morning coffee had be considering my options, and I would take off; but most times I would wander in to the downtown and bump into happenings that were going on that I had had no idea about. That’s how I like things… chance, luck, serendipity; maybe a crazy way to travel, but I was here for a month, and it worked, for me.

These photos are ones you may have seen when I first posted on this trip in what seems like so many years ago, but I think that travel is composed of several parts. The pre-planning that is so exciting, the actual trip, and then looking back at the memories through the photos taken.

As luck would have it the very first day I went in to the downtown, there were festivities and ceremonies going on for some holiday that was happening several weeks before the Easter holiday.

It was a good start to my travels, and learning that I could fly solo. That I was more adventurous, braver and stronger than I thought.

  1. I remember that day! We too were at the Jardin for the indigenous dancers. I was having such a hard time in SMA but festivals like this really helped get me out of myself.

    Sounds like it was a time of transition and that perhaps one thing, among others, that came of this trip to San Miguel Allende was self confidence?
    I grew up in Mexico and over this past year have felt a strong pull to go back, yet it has changed so much. When I think of going back to places that I loved I have a strong apprehension due to the life threatening violence that takes place so frequently.

      Definitely self confidence grew! I had spent every summer as a youth in Mexico, and just felt that pull too. I roamed around San Miguel and never felt afraid or threatened; this was four years ago. I think I would return there. Other places in Mexico I’m not so sure.

    I love those colorful costumes, and that old cathedral. Sounds like a relaxing way to travel. Just stay in one area and wander around.

    These photos are great. I especially like the fully costumed people walking down the street against the stone wall background. And your travels prove you to be a very interesting and apparently strong willed person. Continue your journey and include us by sharing your photos. Thank you.d
