VIDEO: Santa Fab

Posted In: Destinations, Video

We experienced a few episodes of extreme wind and rainfall in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It’s always interesting to ride out a storm in an Airstream. Due to the trailer’s aluminum skin, you enjoy the “rain on a tin roof” effect that’s actually rather soothing (assuming, of course, your shelter doesn’t topple over in a massive gust of wind).

How much do we like Santa Fe? Upon our first visit, we instinctively checked out the local real estate guides. As the wise philosopher Goldilocks famously observed, it’s “just right.”

This town is blessed with far more culture (arts, crafts, music, and chile sauce) than its size would seem to warrant. And it’s got something that’s missing in so many American cities – a sense of history. Santa Fe is almost 400 years old.

At the center of town lies the Plaza. It reminds us of our favorite Central American town, Antigua, Guatemala. As Kristy said, Santa Fe is “like Antigua, but without all the life-threatening danger.” Antigua still takes the overall ambiance prize with its striking Spanish Colonial architecture and magestic ruins. But Santa Fe has far fewer masked, machine gun-toting bandits which I think we’ll all agree is a plus.

When you visit Santa Fe, you begin to understand why New Mexico is called New Mexico.

By the way, the guitarist in our video is Billy D. of The HooDoos. He was outstanding!
