M is for Mexico, Margaritas, Micheladas, Maps, Magazines and Manana (in no particular order)
I guess M is an easy one.
Mexico is a big old DUH! I mean, how could you not love everything about this massive country? They give us margaritas (my favorite one in San Miguel de Allende was no joke and a little birdie even poo'ed by it); they provide us with the ever delicious Micheladas--the fantastic beer elixir which is never made the same any two places; and Manana..well, what can I say about this perfect little bookshop/cafe/kinda-bar/chill out spot on Isla Mujeres? I could wile away YEARS at the counter---con cold Pacicifo, of course--watching the nutties who've made their way to Isla Mujeres go by.
And as for maps and magazines--well, what do you think the source of all inspiration is? I mean, you gotta have maps galore just so you can plot out future journeys (I like the ancient looking ones myself). And, magazines...well all the food, travel, adventure and sailing magazines do tend to overwhelm me but I often find gem upon gem in them...so it makes all the subscription costs (and shipping costs when I am out of town) totally worth it~~
And, if you are looking to firm up a MST perfect day---give me many maps and magazines with a margarita and a michelada back in Manana in Mexico...the glory of it all...could you imagine??
