This winter/spring I am on a six month sabbatical in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. It is a beautiful Colonial “silver city,” a mile high in the desert. It’s been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site, and Conde Nast readers ranked it as their #1 city in the world in 2013. It has great light, a vibrant arts scene, and lots of interesting characters.
In April and May of 2012, I walked the Camino from the border of France to Santiago, and finally the world’s end, Finisterre. Walking the Camino was not a religious act for me, but a spiritual one. I love being outdoors, walking in nature, passing through historic communities, and enjoying an ancient way. It was simple, renewing, and profoundly enlivening. I wrote about the experience for TraveltoWellness.com.
