We stayed longer this year because the weather was amazing there (not so much in Canada but I don’t need to tell you that) and we didn’t need to be back in Canada. When you drive 5,000km (each way) to get somewhere, you want to get every last second out of it. In case you missed something,
Here’s our trip in a nutshell…
It all began on December 16 with a 3-country, 5,000km, and 4-day journey.
I showed you some pictures of a new kind of avocado (I think), what’s cooking in my oven, how to tell the difference between organic and inorganic, discovered a part of Canada in Mexico, our eyes had a feast of colours and we showed you the Cathedral Bells from the 16th century.
An Honourary Mexican Award was bestowed upon me, discussed the caloric content of fried grasshoppers (yes, you read that correctly, grasshoppers) and Ed and I had a romantic dinner with Olivieri Pasta while 5,000km apart.
We got locked INSIDE our house (just as terrifying as getting locked out), showed you what it’s like to live in an old Doctors Office (complete with the staircase to nowhere), and I provided many reasons why you shouldn’t leave the house in your pajamas (trust me on this one).
After almost 18 years with us, our dear Aries the Cat passed away and is buried in our backyard in Mexico.
Right before we left for Canada, our Mexican neighbour gifted us Bubba the Goldfish who lived 24 hours and then two days after that, Artemis showed up with Nemo the Goldfish who lived just 18 hours. I am so done with Goldfish.
We made it back to Canada in record time and under budget (usually costs us $900USD each way). Our house was just as we left it. The snow hadn’t even been plowed out of the driveway.
Home Sweet Home.
What Would You Do While Travelling in Mexico?
P.S. There’s more. A lot more but I just didn’t blog about it.
