Mexican Highway 85 & 57

We had about 1400 miles to reach our destination, Tangancicuaro, Michoacan. Along the route, we were awed by the beautiful scenery. Mountains, hills, and weird looking trees that looked like dancing palm trees. There was a lot of truck stops, which is great. Truck stops get serviced better. We didn’t stop too much but the one time we stopped for a while was to eat some actual food. We made sure we had a seat by the window, so we can see the car. Nothing eventful happened. The 1400-mile was nothing but long stretches of highway and truck stops. The only “bad” moments were the window washermen who force themselves to wash your windshield. They are trying to make a living and all they ask is for some pocket change. Some of them were happy with food and fruit. We were cutting through the edge of Guanajuato which is a level 2. The worst thing about it was the traffic signals were a bit confusing but so far nothing dangerous.

San Miguel de Allende: "Pueblo Magico"

During the course of my life I have traveled and experienced new places, dishes, traditions, and I have been lucky enough to share them with the people I love the most. I believe every place we visit leaves memories we will never forget, but there are some places in particular that offer more than just that. Mexico is known to be a country full of culture, traditions, and magic destinations that show just how much diversity it contains. San Miguel de Allende is a small city in the state of Guanajuato located in central Mexico I had the pleasure of visiting on December of 2015. My current boyfriend, who is from Slovakia and whom had never been to Mexico before, and I had a scheduled trip to Mexico to spend Christmas with my family. Since it was his first time visiting I wanted him to experience my country the best way possible so my family helped me planning a secret trip to San Miguel de Allende.

About Us

If you look for it in a map is just a small town at the southest part of Guanajuato state, which is right in the middle of Mexico; and if you ask people living here most would say “there’s nothing to do”. They might be right since we got used to it, but for a tourist there are some places you should come and experience by yourself. A not so big town with so many train crosses we become crazy and some historical buildings and places for Mexico’s history.
