Family Abroad

A Day in the Lavender Fields: San Miguel de Allende in Guantajuato, Edith’s Hometown

Hey there, folks! I’ve got a little something different to share today. It’s not your usual travel destination; it’s a place close to our hearts – San Miguel de Allende, a small town in Guanajuato, my wife Edith’s hometown. We recently took a family trip there, and the highlight of our visit was a day at the lavender fields. No fancy words, just the simple joys of exploring a place my wife holds dear.

First things first, San Miguel de Allende is a charming little town tucked away in Mexico. It has that old-world charm with cobblestone streets, colorful houses, and a vibrant local culture. The lavender fields aren’t the typical tourist hotspot you’d find in a guidebook, but that’s what makes it special.

We started the day early, and wow, it’s true what they say about the morning in San Miguel. It’s serene and cool, perfect for a day outdoors. We drove out to the lavender fields, which are a bit of a hidden gem.

We strolled between the  lavender blooms, and I’ll admit, the smell was something else, as if nature decided to bottle up all the calmness in the world and put it in these purple blooms.

Edith was like a kid in a candy store. It’s not every day you get to revisit your home state and share it with your family. It made the trip even more special.

Our family trip to the lavender fields in San Miguel de Allende was simple, unpretentious, and filled with the kind of warmth you only find in places like this. It was a day well spent in Edith’s home state, a place that holds her memories and now, ours too.

Till next time, fellow travelers. Keep it simple and savor the moments!
