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.
