Hawai’i: What a stopover!

When we were booking flights out of Vancouver for our trip to New Zealand we found that almost all of the flights went via Hawai'i. Having never been to Hawai'i (possibly the only West Coast Canadians who haven't), this seemed like a perfect time to build in a stopover. We had grand plans for a... Continue Reading →

Puerto Vallarta

Our final stop in our cross-country Mexico trip was Puerto Vallarta (PV), on the West Coast. We took a bus for the 5-hour trip from Guadalajara, and then a 30-minute Uber to get to our hotel right in town. We chose to stay downtown near the Zona Romantica so we could walk to almost everything... Continue Reading →

Guadalajara

With arrival and departure, this only gave us four full days to explore, reduced to three since one of those days would be a day... Continue Reading →

Other than keeping her well fed and... Continue Reading →

Querétaro: The rest of the week

As well as being a beautiful colonial city, Querétaro was a city of surprises for us. Every time we walked through Jardin Zinea we were delighted by something new. We already mentioned the street food festival we happened upon. We returned the next night and found that, in addition to the food festival still set... Continue Reading →

Mexico City: Final 3 days (for now)

The last half of our week in Mexico City was, thankfully, a little slower paced. Though we walked our tushes off exploring neighbourhoods and parks. First up was Condesa, the neighbourhood next to ours (Roma Norte). There is a bit of a blurry line between Roma Norte and Condesa, and the two are often referred... Continue Reading →
