Have you ever been to a place that felt like your “soul city”? Just a town or a place that you felt connected to in a deep, vibey way? For me, the list is short… New Orleans, Paris, and (after last weekend) San Miguel de Allende. In all three of my soul cities, architecture, style, history, and celebration reign supreme. San Miguel is bringing it in all of these crucial categories, and offering even more in the way of lush landscaping and friendly people. When I received an invitation to the destination wedding of Patrick Buckley and Maggie Goen (one of Austin’s hippest — and nicest — couples) in San Miguel I knew it would be an affair to remember. I wanted to document the trip with something better than grainy smartphone pics and I lucked out when our friends at Canon USA offered to lend me a Canon EOS Rebel T6i DSLR camera for the weekend. I was able to roll the camera up in my evening coat inside of my carry-on luggage and (to my delight) I didn’t even have to check a bag. I returned to the states with an amazing album of colorful memories from my weekend in Mexico, and now I’m tempted to take the camera with me where ever I go. Scroll through my photos of my trip to San Miguel de Allende and then head over to Canon to explore the latest travel-ready cameras. Vamanos!
