My Favorite Music

I could not imagine live without music, specially when I travel to work in the morning or come back home in the afternoon. Music is a good thing to remember good times and the perfect complement for any moment.

I like many types of music. If I had to pick only 5 albums for any reason, maybe this one’s will be my choices:

1. Bon Jovi – New Jersey (1988)

Las weekend I went to Columbia Ice Field.  For me is one of the most amazing places that I have ever met. The view is just spectacular, something to live before die. The mountains around this place are the perfect frame for the site. The place was so crowded form people all over the world that take photos, buy souvenirs and have a good experience of this place.

Mexico does not have places like this, only in the top of the volcanoes we have sometimes snow (not every winter).

Bike Touring

 

Bike touring

 

Right now, I’m thinking of making a bike tour. Travelling long distances in a bike can be so exciting but also a very demanding issue. You must be prepared with the right clothing and many little things to have a good experience. Maybe the first travel can be between two nearby cities to gain experience about the equipment to carry and use.

Travelling using a bike is so different to any other form of travel because you can enjoy the travel and stop easily to take pictures or eat something. Also, the journey is part of the experience, but can be a very bad experience if you are not in a good shape or you are not prepared.

Your bike has to carry several things and the weight is maybe the most important thing to be worried, you must do not forget have several tools and spare parts for your bike; and also clothing, water, food, and camping equipment for you.

Planning a good route to visit the points of interest that you want to see is basic, and do not forget stop and take many pictures. Enjoy!

Mexican Food

Tacos-Mexicanos-300x220

I really miss Mexican food. Right now I know, I love Mexican food. The first thing that I am going to do when I arrive in Mexico before I leave the airport is to find a taco store and eat until I will be full.

I know this is not the best Mexican food, even, tacos is like a kind of fast food, but this is a great opportunity to enjoy something of my country. Do you want to come with me?

Arriving in Canada

I leave Mexico on July 6 taking my first plane form Guanajuato International Airport traveling to Houston, Texas in the USA. My experience with US customs and border control in the airport was a little unpleasant because I was conducted to secondary revision without known about why was there. US customs guys only revised my documents and made me wait for almost one hour to authorize my three hour stay in US to take a plane to Calgary.

The plane trip was so tired.
