Reluctantly, I took my first trip to Mexico in July 2010, when travel to other parts of the world became too expensive. My first stop was Puerto Vallarta, because airfare was cheap, and so was housing during the torrid summer months. That trip changed my attitude. No longer was I a reluctant traveler. Returning to Mexico again and again became my goal. Right after Christmas 2011, I made my fifth foray into Mexico. Now, I’ve lost track of all my trips south of the border!
