mexico city, mexico:

hola mexico city - the view from our window

I'm so excited to be sharing my Mexico snaps! 
Andy and I both LOVED Mexico. What a wonderful country to travel around and explore. We had been meaning to visit for so long now, it was great to finally arrive and experience all it's goodness for ourselves - and we were not disappointed, at all.
Our first port of call was Mexico City. 
Mexico City is massive, like 20 million people massive. We had heard many fabulous tales about the city from various sources and were really looking forward to checking it out. Based in the gorgeous Condesa neighbourhood, we spent five jam-packed days exploring as much of the city as possible. From the historical centre, to colourful neighbourhoods, markets to pre-hispanic ruins, there is so much richness in Mexico City. And the food. Oh the food! We found so many incredible little eateries and bars, especially in Condesa and neighbouring Roma area, adding greatly to our experience of the city.
It wasn't long at all before Mexico City crept it's way towards the top part of our 'favourite cities of the world' list.

Below are snaps from our first couple of days. I'll be posting much from Mexico City, including our visit to Frida Kahlo's house, the pre-hispanic ruins of Teotihuacan and lots of pretty little neighbourhoods.

Next: La Lagunilla flea market.

  1. oh my! Please take me back to mexico! I loooove these pictures, so inspirational! That large door is exceptional! Great photos :)

  2. Gosh your photos are beautiful! There's such a richness to them - do you do any post editing with Lightroom or Photoshop?

    1. thank you so much! i use photoshop and don't do too much post editing except for playing with the contrast and saturation/colours a little bit. i used to use some of the 'totally rad' actions, but not so much anymore.
