I mentioned in my previous post that I was going to Mexico for my best friends wedding. Katia and I were inseparable throughout high school and I practically lived in her house half the time. However, she went off to Switzerland for college and I stayed here. As the case is with many of my other close HS friends who have moved away, we would only get to see each other when she'd come home for Christmas. This was a friendship that no lapse of time or distance could ruin.
When she announced her engagement to me during her visit last year, I was beside myself with happiness! Her fiance was with her at the time, and seeing how genuinely happy she was with him was all I needed. I knew I had to be there with her on her wedding day wherever in the world it would be. They currently live in Los Cabos but had opted to tie the knot in Mexico City where his family is from. This got me even more excited as I've always wanted to travel to Mexico!
While I was making arrangements, my travel plans morphed into a more extensive holiday. So aside from a week in Mexico City, my itinerary now includes a 3-night stopover in Phoenix, AZ to visit another old friend from school, one week in Las Vegas, NV where my sister and her daughter are flying in from Vancouver to meet me together with some other relatives (I am so psyched about this as I haven't seen them in years!) and another week in San Francisco, CA (one of my favorite cities in the world) for more visits to friends and some work as well.
I hope to be able to post while I'm away, but even if I don't I will definitely check in once in a while. So if you have any recommendations for any of the cities I'll be travelling to, I would really love to hear it. Now, I need to finish packing and get some sleep. Hasta luego! :)
