Off to Mexico!

Monday morning Steven and I, we vamos a Mexico!

We haven't taken a big trip since our honeymoon in Greece two and half years ago. (That's the terrible irony about being a traveler who opens a hotel. )

 At the oh so amazing San Giorgio hotel in Mykonos, Greece.

At the oh so amazing San Giorgio hotel in Mykonos, Greece.

That trip was wonderful for so many reasons, especially because it was there, one night on a beach in Crete, that we had the idea to open a hotel in the Catskills! And while yes, the dream to open a hotel had been brewing in my mind since we lived in Morocco, it wasn't until Greece that it became crystal clear exactly where this dream hotel should be. 

So, thank you Greece! Or more precisely, thank you Travel for doing what you do best: opening our hearts and minds to paths previously unconsidered. 

We're flying into Oaxaca and out of Mexico City so we'll be getting both our beach and our city on. I cannot WAIT for the mezcal and the tacos and the hammocks and the conversations with new friends... If anyone has any recommendations, lemme know!

The one place we have booked right now is three nights at a kind of a sister hotel to our favorite hotel in Greece (the San Giorgio in Mykonos): Hotel Escondido

It's the big splurge of the trip, but I've heard such fabulous things and besides, it's toooooootally research. I'm sure I'll learn a thing or two!

I'm also excited to hit up the art/residency center Casa Wabi right next door and see what they're all about.

And yes, the Inn will be closed to guests when we're out of town, though we will have a buddy house-and-Waldo sitting when we're gone. No, Waldo did not make the packing list cut, haha!

Hasta la huego!
