WHEN A CHANGE OF HAIR COLOR SIGNIFIES A CHANGE IN LIFE

February 21, 2020

WE ARE HAVING A CONTEST, WANT TO JOIN IT?

The thing is, I have an urge to shake things up a bit. And, we are going to let you have your turn to!!

Good things have been happening in my life, it seems like everything is falling into place! And it makes me joyful. That is why I am changing my hair color. To signify that my life is so GOOD!! And HOPEFUL. And I feel DARING!

This isn’t the first time I have colored my hair. I had been a natural redhead, complete with freckles, up till my 40’s. And have gone dark cherry at other times. But now, it seems I need to get a bit edgier again. Continue Reading…

THE SPECTACULAR LAGUNA BACALAR

February 12, 2020

After being in Merida for awhile we needed a break from the city and Christmas was a couple of days away. So, not wanting to be in the city for the holiday we booked an easy five hour ADO bus to Laguna Bacalar to check out the wonderful lake we heard people raving about. And, yes, it is spectacular! And not difficult to travel to from several spots in the Yucatan. We took a first class ADO bus from Merida which leaves several times a day.  Lake Bacalar can also reached from Tulum and Playa Del Carmen. Bring your Kindles along and watch the time fly by.  Continue Reading…

CHIME IN WITH A “WHERE SHOULD WE VISIT IN MEXICO” SUGGESTION

Do you love and subscribe to our blog? How would you like to suggest a place in Mexico we should visit and write a post about? Yes, you get to determine a destination for us to travel to.

We are unfortunately having to change our 7 month SE Asia plans. Not to worry, we are still going to be traveling for 5-6 months. This time throughout Mexico, Cuba, Guatemala and perhaps Belize. We leave in October and are starting to plan out the itinerary, so do you have a place in Mexico you would like Our Prime Of Life to travel to and post a blog from? Visit our Destinations portion of the site to see where we have already been and suggest someplace new for us to suss out and write about. The town should be available at least by bus.  Continue Reading…

A SKIFF THROUGH THE MANGROVES OF DZINITUN IN CELESTUN

February 5, 2020

Less than 2 hours from Merida is Celestun, a relatively untouched part of the Yucatan. There are no high-rises, no glitzy restaurants and no nightclubs. It is an area to come and chill out with nature and spend a bit of time wandering the long beach or doing a few excursions in the surrounding territory.

Getting up early is not necessarily my husband and my thing, but if something intriguing is happening we heed the call and get ourselves out of bed and on our way in record time. Continue Reading…

WHEN LADY ZEN COMES TO TOWN

February 4, 2020

When Lady Zen arrives to San Miguel de Allende it is a very special moment for all of us!! We simply cannot seem to get enough of her. And to our delight she comes often.

Glenn and I first saw Lady Zen after our arrival to our new home base of San Miguel De Allende, Mexico in 2018. She made such a mind-blowing impact on us that we have made it to all of her performances since, as long as we are in town. Who was this powerhouse that we had never heard of before?

FIVE NIGHTS IN ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT ISLA HOLBOX

January 20, 2020

After our expensive stay in Tulum we were ready to explore a place with a bit more of a laid back, bohemian feeling. And boy did we find everything we hoped for in Isla Holbox!! (pronounced Holbosch) We absolutely loved this relaxed island and it is now our favorite escape for when San Miguel de Allende goes through its cold winter. The hype is well worth it. We were very happy exploring and hanging out and the vibe was right up our alley!! I could easily spend a month here. But 5 days in December were all we got this time.

The island is long with a good portion of it restricted reserve. To get your bearings, the town crosses the island on the western end and most of the happening spots are on the northern side away from the ferry terminal.  Continue Reading…

A CHANGING TULUM, AND TITA TULUM ECOLOGICAL ISN’T “AH” ANYMORE

January 19, 2020

First check out our post from our visit to Tulum in February 2019.

SAYING AH!!!!!! AT TITA TULUM-HOTEL ECOLOGICAL AND ON THE BEACH IN TULUM

And now here are our impressions 10 months later.

When we first went to Tulum in February 2019 we were awestruck by its cool vibe and beautiful beach, making immediate plans before we left to return when the weather started to get crisp in San Miguel for the winter.  Continue Reading…

SHOOT PHOTOS NOT GUNS 2020

January 8, 2020

We are taking a quick break from our normal posts but we think this is important. Believing that our followers are inquisitive, aware and concerned, we have a proposal. Can you help?

With all the horrifying talk of impending doom and possible war that has happened in the short first days of our new year 2020 I have decided that we need something positive to happen. I would like to start a campaign. I don’t know anything about starting a campaign but let’s try. 

Let’s make sure we don’t have a war in our future that could possibly destroy the world as we know it (albeit it certainly still needs a lot of help) but instead let’s get together and share photos of people we DON”T want to wage war with.  Continue Reading…
