We love every minute of our time in Cabo. It’s hard to even contemplate a few days away from our home away from home when our time here is limited.
However, adventure called. We wanted to stretch our legs, expand our cultural horizons and better acquaint ourselves with our second home state of Baja California Sur, Mexico.
Walking around the historic center of Mexico City, you’ll see enthusiastic street performers, wonder at a range of architectural styles and feel an intense craving for anything corn thanks to that sweet smell permeating the air.
All of your senses are on high alert as your mind races to take it all in.
In some ways, Mexico City is a bit of an acquired taste. We spent four days there in November and my feelings for it changed with each day along with the weather.
From the unseasonable chilliness, scattered showers and gray clouds to our final days of sunshine, my outlook awakened to the many things to love about this populous city built on lakes.
A trip to Germany often gets combined with other countries. Just look at its nine picturesque neighbors – Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland and Switzerland.
As the European country with the most neighbors, it’s no wonder Germany’s borders tempt one to contemplate side trips.
Once we pulled out a map and began counting the possibilities within this country, our German interests quickly outnumbered our days.
We weren’t sure what to expect from India’s “Pink City.” Jaipur, India, got its name from the distinctly colored buildings painted to resemble red sandstone. For good measure, the city later repainted the town in the same rose tone to impress the Prince of Wales during a visit in 1876.
For us, the color paled in comparison to the more vibrant city tucked past its larger tourist stops.
If you were to watch the traffic in Delhi, you’d think there would have to be accident within every mile. We didn’t witness one mishap in Delhi.
It’s as if the blaring horns create their own language, uniting the city in managed chaos.
