Puerto Vallarta relaxation is what the doctor ordered when Stacey and I decided to have a long weekend to celebrate our 18th wedding anniversary and have our first kid-free getaway together in a few years. We chose Puerto Vallarta generally and Villa Premiere Boutique Hotel & Romantic Getaway specifically as a good place to have some time together without parenting duties.
Before traveling to Taos, N.M., I had heard the mountain town is full of character … and a few characters. Taos isn’t on the way to anywhere, unless your destination is a town with a cool vibe and beautiful mountains all around. And that’s why we were excited to spend a couple of days in this beautiful and laid-back mountain town. We wanted to discover the unique Taos character. When we arrived in Taos we quickly met our host for the evening, and one of the community’s real characters. We had arrived at the Red Cat House, where we found a carefree, artsy, cool and eccentric lady who quickly came to represent everything Taos means to me.
