San Miguel De Allende | A Birthday Adventure

It was my 30th birthday at the beginning of May!  I decided to get out of town to celebrate and visit this little mountain town I had been hearing so much about.  San Miguel de Allende, the magic is real.

All of these were taken on my iphone and edited with VSCO

Café Jardin Rama | I LOVED this spot.  Had my birthday breakfast here and the best tequila I’ve ever tasted.  I hate hard liquor so that’s saying something.

A man from the coffee shop next door (Café Eluney, mmm those quesadillas) gave us a tour of this hidden gem of an alley.  Wish I could remember the name…go ask them if you visit!

El Tupinamba | Any time we walked past this place there was live music and a fun atmosphere.  We stopped in for Flamenco night, such good vibes and a passionate performance by the first male flamenco dancer I’ve ever seen.

We told the taxi driver to take us to his favorite taco place.  We could not stop eating these.  A hole in the wall near the main square, go find her!

I just loved this town and these beautiful people I got to experience it with.  We didn’t have time to visit Guanajuato, that’s #1 on the list for next time.  Also…blog post on the Chapel of Jimmy Ray coming soon!!
