Mexico, Te Extraño Mucho

It has been a little over a month since I’ve returned to the U.S., and I must admit I miss Mexico City a lot. I was really living my best life there enjoying delicious food, meeting so many amazing people, and exploring new parts of the city everyday. Just like I expected, I miss the

More Trips!

Written on Saturday, July 28 These past few weeks have been amazing and eventful!

Getting Ready

It is my day of departure for Mexico City and the excitement has kept me up all night. Sleep deprived but ready to welcome the experience of being in Mexico with open arms, I am writing this blog post as I wait for my boarding group to be called. With me are two other girls
