I am in love with New Mexico, the land of enchantment, and a state in US. I have just returned from a 10 day vacation in the Northern part of New Mexico – mainly Dixon a nice artistic town outside of Taos and Santa Fe.
I love everything about NM – the air is crisp, and its scent makes you to forget about what you were thinking about, the scenery you never get tired of – mountains, vineyards, rivers, blue sky and at night the limitless stars.
On my second day in Dixon I felt like being in instant Savasana and still I accomplished a significant amount of things. I visited places, hiked, slept, saw local theater, took a pottery class, find out I can hulahoop really well.
I have never felt like cheating on NYC before but not I have to admit that my relationship with NYC is not exclusive anymore. Time will show if New Mexico is a fling or true love long term relationship.
I returned to New York on Monday and have been endlessly dreaming of owning a piece of this enchanted land, with a horse called Buttercup, and maybe another called “Scarlet”.
Now I am back in NYC, my first love. And as I enter the subway, with my tea, and my book and get back to work, I realize that a GOOD vacation can make me a better person. People are nice again, the future looks brighter then ever. I have more balanced approach to life in general. Slowing down is a motto.
Plan your vacation soon … I will happily convince you that it should be in New Mexico.
Enjoy the photos.
During our trip in New Mexico, we saw a lot of sign of cows, but no cows 🙂 and when I saw the sign and cows at the same time, it was WOW moment. So far I think it is one of the best pictures of New Mexico.
There are also forests.
Very simple and beautiful church at Native reservation – Picuris Pueblo
People ride horses there and I hope to do the same soon :).
Red mountains are unbelievable beautiful on our way to Ghost Ranch.
I was obsessed with local food – home grown tomatoes, parsley. Bread is local, eggs – I even saw the chickens. Food does not taste the same here. No I am not planning to get the chickens :).
yes, we were going to wine events at local wineries :). Danusia and Miay.
Little me and BIG SKY.
