Have Passport, Will Travel

travel passport Mexico and Canada aren't such bad places for foreign travel, but there's a lot more of the world to see.

Actually, I don’t have my passport yet, but I pulled all the documents together yesterday and applied for one. For whatever reason, this feels important to me. Other than Mexico and Canada, I have never been to a foreign country, but I desperately want to travel.

Cancun Back In Business

travel mexico cancun beach Despite ongoing repairs from Hurricane Wilma, the Mexican shores of Cancun are ready for vacationers.
The good thing is that they are functional down there. I wouldn’t let anything I just said about the damage stop any one from going. The service was outstanding. The people were just fabulous. The beaches everywhere looked picturesque.

Rocket Man

travel Is this the future of travel?

If you haven't heard about Juan Manuel Lozano perhaps you should. Lozano has devoted most of his life to building a personal jetpack at his home 50 miles south of Mexico City. Along the way he has invented and sold a distiller for 90% pure Hydrogen Peroxide (which he uses to fuel his jetpack) and a super efficient "Penta M" catalyst pack which converts the fuel into steam.

Click through for more about jetpack pioneer Lozano.

Aventura Palace

travel mexico aventura palace Where do I sign up for this trip to Mexico?
The second week was pure luxury: fully inclusive at the Aventura Palace. Cocktails, snacks and meals virtually 24/7. Apart from sunbathing and swimming we walked and cycled to the nearby port where we swam with dolphins. What an experience! We also took the courtesy bus to a sister hotel to visit their zoo and snorkel in their lagoon.

Dreaming Of Mexico

travel mexico desert Sounds like it's time for a dream trip to Mexico!

In a different dream I was visiting the family ranch in Mexico, again finding myself without my camera. The dream was lush and haunting and beautiful in a way I’ve never dreamed before, intense and, ultimately, so melancholy my heart wanted to break; in the dream my every sense was hyperalert, and the details of the arid and rolling scrub of northern Mexico were clearer, broader, more vivid, more alive than at any previous time in any of my dreams before. Breathtaking, the dream may have been visualized more clearly than any of the times I’ve physically visited Mexico. My Spanish was fluent, my grandmother and uncles and cousins were wonderful to interact with, to speak to, to listen to, but ultimately the unyielding theme of the dream was: I was never going to return, this was the last time I would be able to dream of Mexico, of the desert, this would be the last time this place and I could be together. In the dream itself I could scarcely breathe, at this realization, and on waking I nearly wept, as if there was some prophecy in it, as if I honestly would never be able to again set eyes on my grandmother…

Don't Skip Acapulco

travel acapulco mexico From a fun traveblog on a trip through Mexico.
Most travellers we have met along the way who have been to Mexico advised us to skip Acapulco... but I'm glad we didn't listen to them. The place has a real kitch appeal that could only be achieved after years of exploitation by a money hungry tourism industry. Now, in the aftermath of Acapulco's hey-day, stands a town built on mosaic tiles and impractical 1980's playboy architecture.

Travel Perspectives

travel mexico kids playing music Sometimes travel is about vacations and fun, sometimes about business, and sometimes about seeing other lives.

If there is one thing I am learning in México, it is how to answer this question. Guilt, in its infancy, is a small, persistent pain, like needle pricks. The dullness of these pricks leaves me with a tangible fear of having been given too much. Walking the streets of Mexico City, a woman, missing an eye, holds our her hand, her other eye rolling miserably in its socket. A man, shamelessly sits with his jeans rolled up to display a leg that has eaten itself, the skin clinging unnaturally to the bone. Children dance around your legs, asking for money so they can get high on glue in the alleys at sundown. Men huddle in the parks, the burning stakes of the Inquisition looming within the shadows of the trees. A prostitute, her face surreal with blue and purple makeup, walks with her eyes vast and empty, knowing too much and owning too little, not even her own life.

Who's Going to Mexico?

travel mexico festival Mexico is so inexpensive, you can bring a friend. It's just a matter of figuring out which one.

Have I also mentioned that I’m thinking of a trip to Mexico this fall? I’m planning on a cost of about $3,000.. That’s including airfare for me and half of someone else. Cause I know that no one I know can afford it, so I think if I offer to pay half they could. Plus the hotel is only $25 american a night. So that’s dead cheap. I’m just not sure WHO to ask, or WHEN to go. I kinda want to ask Jed, or Jenkins, cause they would both be fun to go with. But I haven’t hung out with Jed in years, and well they are both...

United Airlines Increasing the Number of Flights to Puerto Vallarta

travel mexico puerto vallarta beach More ways to get to Puerto Vallarta. No excuses for missing a vacation to Mexico.

The Puerto Vallarta Fideicomiso de Turismo announces that in addition to its current flight program, United Airlines will now offer additional flights from Denver, Colorado and San Francisco, California into Puerto Vallarta, Mexico on its low fare service carrier, TED. These new flights are on track to launch this December, just in time for warm winter vacations.

Ted, the new low-fare service from United Airlines, has added the highly demanded daily flights from these west coast cities, both key travel origins for Puerto Vallarta. The Puerto Vallarta Tourism Trust is pleased with the mutual benefits of United Airline’s added flights and views this as an opportunity to expand the destination’s tourism reach even further.

Alfredo Rosas, Director of the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Trust stated, “We recognize and appreciate the great potential of these new United Airlines flights. The Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board is looking forward to working closely with United Airlines in order to appropriately and effectively market these new flights.”

Whether vacationing travelers are heading to Mexico in search of a warmer holiday season or simply to bask in its tranquil setting, United Airlines will continue to make Puerto Vallarta even more accessible for travelers.

Down around Biloxi

high rise on beach There are still some places safe from developers, for the moment. I think back on my childhood home, what it was then, and what development has done to it now.

The Gulf of Mexico is off there to your right as you cruise this part of the Gulf Coast, and the great state of Mississippi gives you plenty of access to the water – unlike my hometown, but that’s another story. Well, here goes anyway: If Florida politicians got ahold of this stretch of property, they’d sell out to the highest bidder before the ink was dry and the people be damned. The entire view would be blocked out by blocky, generic, high-rise condominiums, and only the rich would get salt air in their lungs.

Fond Memories Spur a Swiss Enchilada Quest

travel mexico food enchilada The food in Mexico is some of the best in the world. Every region has a completely different cuisine based on the local food markets.

Any dish in Mexico that's labeled "suiza" can be attributed to the country's Swiss immigrants. Many of these immigrants gravitated to the dairy country and ended up producing cheeses, yogurt and a version of creme fraiche called crema Mexicana. These enchiladas are some of the richest and most delicate in Mexico. Accompany with a green salad and a small serving of beans or rice.
