Snails in Mexico look just like…snails
Having a big yard and plentiful rains, daily, regularly, mercilessly keeping things wet and green results in a) surprisingly clean car; b) perpetually wet feet; and c) children knee deep in snails.
No, I did not join ;)
Stick around, there is more:
The Spanish discovered silver here. They needed a town. Guanajuato was born.
There was lots of silver through these mountains and the place was prosperous. The colonialists had lots of money … Continue reading →
Mexico, country number fifty something.
After a surprisingly smooth border crossing/car importing, spending a night in a city in the middle of vast parched spaces covered in no less than gazillions … Continue reading →

I started to say â€¦ you have no idea the effect your posts have on peopleâ€¦ and thank you! But you’ve been doing this for enough years to have a pretty good idea.
I just discovered you. Sites like yours (and I only find them once in a while) keep me hungry for what I want. We are a family of five as well. We’ve got a couple of years before we early retireâ€¦ I’m taking the boring schmoring way!
Our kids right now are close to yours in age, girl 13, girl 11 and boy just turned 7. If you ever want to visit Canada, our doors are open for you. Ottawa. I recommend summer but lots of people come in the winter (crazy!).
I’m interested in early retirement, most importantly now to travel with the kids while they are youngish. Chicken shit to wait this long maybe. But this is what I’ve worked out so far. I want slow travel. I love your blog. Two and half years to go!
I’m now officially stalking you.
Welcome Colleen! Thank you for the smile you brought to my face.
I dont think there are right or wrong ways to do this and everyone finds their path somehow. Sounds like you will be a lot more prepared for this than us. We are in the process of biting our nails with the prospect of returning to “real life”.
Happily stalked by you,
Not sure how I missed this! Going to share this with my girlfriend…I’m sure she’ll love the snail photos. :)
So simple yet so true. Such a simple idea and it brings me back to my childhood days where playing with snails was so much fun. And now I know, what the snails in Mexico looks like.
