It's obvious that the food in Oaxaca made a long-lasting impact on my undeserving, mere-human taste buds. And my god, do I feel fortunate?! I hope I get the privilege to step foot back in this magical city sometime in the future so I can indulge again in the most delicious shit I've ever had.
Back in the historic center, one of the most visible sites is the 15–16th century Templo de Santo Domingo with its hypnotizing Baroque façade and its adjacent botanical garden that houses a collection of plants that are native to Oaxaca (yep, the same one I couldn't get into).
After many, many steps down that slightly slippery and questionable staircase, you're greeted by a beautiful cavern and deep-blue water. It's just incredible to look at! The water is so crystal clear, it's hypnotizing. This cenote is perfect for snorkeling as it's the deepest of the three in the area.
Welcome back, y'all! Or welcome for the first time if you got lost on the way to somewhere productive and somehow ended up here. This is the second and last of my posts about my trip to Guanajuato City — so check that first post out if you haven't. I also just want to point … Continue reading Guanajuato: Alleyways, Rooftops and a Lie!
Hello, my little unicorns of the world! This blog is rising from the dead, y'all! Anyway, I recently traveled to the city of Guanajuato in central México where I got to spend Día de Muertos — you know, only one of the most important holidays in Mexican culture. And I'm breaking this topic up into … Continue reading The Truth About Spending Día de Muertos in Guanajuato, México.
"Fuck no, I don't want to go to Paris." —Me before I went to Paris and loved it. Don't hate me too much. But I really had little to no interest in going to Paris. I would've chosen 50 other cities before choosing Paris. Overrated, smelly and dirty are all things I had heard of … Continue reading Merde! We Flooded an Apartment in Paris!
This past October, I visited the Pacific Northwest for the very first time. As you hopefully read about in my first post about this trip, I hopped over the U.S.-Canada border into Vancouver, B.C. after hitting up Seattle. Canada's been on my list of places to visit probably since I was in the womb. (Okay, not … Continue reading Vancouver, B.C.: I Saw Whales & Almost Barfed!
"So, what made you come to Seattle?" Asked our Lyft driver, as she drove through the gorgeous, lush Leschi neighborhood on our way to see Kurt Cobain's last home. "Well, you see," I began to very shamelessly say (as I do), "I've always been obsessed with Grey's Anatomy." I hadn't finished my sentence before she … Continue reading Meet Me at Kerry Park at Dusk.
That's right. At some point in my life I lived in BALI. No, not the "Eat, Pray, Love" bullshit you're thinking of. I didn't stay in a fancy ass villa with an infinity pool, nor did I fall in love with an expat (that's what happens in that movie, right?). I recently went into a … Continue reading The time I lived in Sumber Klampok, Bali, Indonesia.
Hi, there! I'm here to talk to you about the reason why I'm hostage to a newfound obsession with the Caribbean. The last time I was in Cancun was about six or seven years ago ... and that's where we'll leave that one at. #ragrets This time around, I spent five days and fours nights … Continue reading A Bachelorette, 11 Strangers & Playa.
