    Breaking Good

    July 9, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    We started the day with an early morning run around the lava field, as you do! Then we cruised on up to Albuquerque and finally started getting out of the
    Chihuahuan desert and into the hills. After the amazing petroglyphs in Texas we had high hopes for Petroglyph National Monument, but were pretty underwhelmed by the 400-700 year old graffiti (we are now petroglyph snobs!) - if you see the photos you will understand...

    The CRAZY driving and Friday night traffic put us off a quick stop off in Albuquerque and we overnight in another really nice public campground in the edge of town which even had its own casita. In the morning we decide to drive the looooong way round to Santa Fe but 15 minutes into the drive up into the massive mountains it said the pavement (aka the road to any 'normal' people) stopped, so we thought Elvis wouldn't thank us for that we bailed and ended up on the Interstate (which we have mostly avoided up to now).

    As we were in the middle of the Texan desert for our anniversary we decided to splash out in Santa Fe and have booked into a hotel (to be honest it cost us $30 as I cashed in loyalty points, but don't tell Jo)! We spent the day meandering through the beautiful old city of Santa Fe, with its amazing adobe buildings, buying lots of native Indian jewellery, and enjoying a few cold ones on a terrace overlooking the main square. Tonight we are having a posh meal out and a night on the town.

    Santa Fe

    May 10, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 7 °C

    C'est en route pour Santa Fe, tout près du village de Las Vegas, que je me suis enlisée dans la boue. Je venais tout juste de décidé que ça ne valait pas la peine de payer pour le camping parce qu'il pleuvait à boire debout et qu'il n'y avait ni eau, ni douche. Tant qu'à rester au Wal-Mart! Mais bon, la vie a décidé autrement.

    En fin du compte les orages on cessé et la boue ses égoutté et le lendemain j'ai pu m'en sortir juste en donnant beaucoup, beaucoup de gaz sans arrêter jusqu'à la sortie. Je suis partie sans payer, shhhh!!! Les rangers n'avaient qu'à venir me voir dans mon champs!!!!

    Je me suis gâté un gros déjeuner à Santa Fe à la place, pour l'inconvénient et le stress ;) Santa Fe est vraiment une ville pas comme les autres. C'est un mélange de cultures; Amérindien, Espagnol, et Américain. Tous les édifices doivent être construit dans un des styles permis (ils se ressemblent tous pas mal). Il y a plein de boutiques de bijoux en turquoise, d'artisans et de galeries d'arts.

    Jusqu'à présent j'adore le Nouveau Mexique, les paysages passe d'un extrême à l'autre en peu de temps!

    Plaza Cafe

    March 24, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

    Hard to decide what to have for breakfast this morning. It all sounded delicious. Will have to come back.

    I had the Yogurt Parfait. Layers of yogurt, homemade walnut pepita granola with dates and dried fruit and fresh seasonal fruit.

    Brian had the Carnitas Plate - two eggs and pulled pork, topped with green chile and grilled onions. Served with tortilla, hash browns and beans.Read more

    Exploring Santa Fe

    April 26, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 68 °F

    Today we decided to take our own driving tour of Santa Fe. We started off at the historic Plaza Cafe with the best sopapillas in New Mexico (I agree with the claim). They are these doughy fried triangles that you dip in honey-yum! We stopped by the Palace of Governors (the oldest continuously occupied public building in the U.S.) which was built in 1610 by the Spanish to help govern the Southwest.

    The city of Santa Fe is incredibly charming. It’s evident it was an old city, with narrow streets and Pueblo architecture. We found ourselves winding our way up residential streets past charming adobe houses with wisteria vines climbing up the sides. The downtown had revitalized their rail yard district into an arts and dining center. It’s definitely a beautiful city, and one I would love to come back to again.
