Eli mocking Brady
Or should I say, Deja Blue?? That’s right, like two time Superbowl MVP Eli Manning (“Greatest QB ever” for short) and the Champions of the Multiverse New York Giants I am back! Ok ok, this is a travel blog, so lets leave the sports talk behind for now, and get to the story.
This is another post more about the photos than anything. Well, that and some info on places to check out, whether for eating or just to see. Continue reading
On Wednesday, Kiel, Roel, Marianne and I attended the Atlas-Pumas game at Estadio Jalisco, kickoff 8:45 pm. We had tried to get tickets to the Clasico between Chivas and America over the weekend, but that was sold out, so this was the next best choice. Continue reading
This post is more about the pictures and I couldn’t help but use the alliteration in the title. It was just too easy. Continue reading
So after a few weeks of soaking up the rays in Baja California and along the Pacific Coast of mainland Mexico, we turned inland to Guadalajara. We had decided to take a week of Spanish classes in Tlaquepaque, a suburb of Guadalajara (GDL), but Kiel already told you that. I had done some research and decided on the Guadalajara Language Center (GLC). There were a lot of options out there, but this school ticked most of our boxes, Continue reading
Clearly, I am a little behind on updates. As you can see from Kiel’s post, we made our way south from our failed attempt at Copper Canyon, hitting Mazatlan, San Blas, Sayulita, Puerto Vallarta, La Manzanilla (not to be confused with Manzanillo, which is just south) and Barra de Navidad. I thought I would throw in some more information and pictures since I am sure we will eventually convince some of you reading this to make the trip. Continue reading
Urban Dictionary defines “owned” as:
To be made a fool of; to make a fool of; to confound or prove wrong; embarrassing someone; being embarrassed.
e.g.: I owned you in counter-strike. You were owned at the party yesterday.
That was us trying to get to Copper Canyon. Continue reading
After a wonderful night of sleep and a hearty oatmeal breakfast cooked on the beach, Kiel and I headed to the port at around 9:30 am to start the process of buying our ferry tickets and figuring out the process of loading the Astro. Neither of us knew what to expect, so we figured five hours would be sufficient to get things in order, run into town for a few things and get back in time to catch the 3:00 pm ferry. It is a good thing we left as early as we did, as there were some surprises along the way. Continue reading
So, I will be the first to admit that I am not much of an outdoorsman. That moniker was always more reserved for my brother Jason, who had asked our parents to take us camping from a fairly young age. I always went along begrudgingly, angry that I may miss a Yankee game. Continue reading
As you probably could guess from Kiel’s last post, we did finally meet up, although, I’m not sure we’re any safer. Anyway, I was able to get an email from Kiel asking to meet up at McDonald’s (the only landmark we would both surely know), which was basically right across the street from the hotel where I was unceremoniously dropped off the night before. Oddly, he sent the email from McDonald’s, where there is free Wi-Fi, not knowing I was two minutes away. Continue reading
