Must See Mexico City: 10 Days in a Culture Capital by Danna Sweidan

Before we go over the itinerary that Sam and I used, I’d like to give five general tips about traveling to Mexico City too.

Tip 1.

The weather is mostly mild and sunny year round, but the altitude (over 7000 ft above sea level) means it’s windy and sudden storms can take you by surprise— bring easy layers and comfortable tennis shoes.

Tip 2.

Ready To See The World

 

After going on my two week adventure to France and Spain I have the urge to head back to France and live for six months or even a year. I have always had the urge to travel and now that I have gone international I am ready to do it again. There are so many things in the world to see and I want to see them all. Now that I am on the edge of finishing college the road is wide open for me with no limitations. I will admit that sometimes I am afraid of change but change is good in different aspects of life. With that being said, I am ready to see the different changes of life head my way. Live Love Life.

Last night of the trip. Sangria and Tuna pizza…Loved the sangria however, I was not a big fan of eating fish on my pizza. It was good though.
