We had a FUN & fabulous time with all the festivities happening for Día de Muertos! 😊

  • We don’t usually do tours but this one was great! The company is A Closer Look Tours. And our guide Eric has a B & B in Guanajuato plus does custom trips. He treated us to a Mezcal tasting and served us lunch there too!

  • We flew into Guadalajara and out of Mexico City from Tijuana – as that was the only way to fly non-stop – which saved us time and money. We opted for a tour and fortunately we were a small group of 14.
  • Traveling by bus we visited Tequila, Morelia, Pátzcuaro, Quiroga, Tzintzuntzan, Guanajato, San Miguel de Allende, Dolores Hidalgo, Queretaro, Taxco, Cuernavaca, Xochimilco, and Mexico City.
  • And the highlight was being able to experience Día de Muertos! The Day of the Dead—is a holiday celebrated on November 1st & 2nd that honors the dead with festivals and lively celebrations.

FUN-fact – Assured that the dead would be insulted by mourning or sadness, Día de los Muertos celebrates the lives of the deceased with food, drink, parties, and activities the dead enjoyed in life.

  • Spectacular Scotland – The Royal Mile was all a frenzy with The Fringe festivities…world’s greatest platform for creative freedom…but the main reason we came was for the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo…encompassing 26 military marching bands and dance troops from around the world. Beyond Spectacular!
  • Thrilled that Cinzia (sister) & Fabio joined us from Trieste, Italy and got to have dinner with Alex & Barbara…whom we met on our…“Slow Boat to Singapore” cruise in 2016.
  • Then we took two day trips…1st to St. Andrews…that included Anstruther & Falkland…where they film Outlander…2nd was to North Berwick…quaint coastal town…just 40 miles from Edinburgh…with the best lobster ever!

Trip Recap – Exceptionally Epic! But not without some avoidable disappointments…

…and one’s out of our control…like British Airways computers being down…

…the day we flew home…at least we had the lounge…and we didn’t miss our flight!

New Travel Motto: When it’s no longer FUN, we’re done!

Thank God our international bucket runneth over!
