I grew up in Montreal and moved to Oaxaca, Mexico ten years ago. I live with Mexican hubby and our two kids, an eight year old girl and baby boy. We lead tours in Oaxaca and surroundings, and I write for About.com’s Mexico Travel section.
My suegro (father-in-law) referred to my daughter as the Mariposa Monarca, the Monarch Butterfly because, he explained, she travels to Canada but always comes back to Mexico. Since I have roots in all three countries of North America, I’m a migrant and love to travel, I figured that would be a good name for my blog.
The photo above was taken in a Monarch butterfly reserve in Michoacan.
