My Month in Mexico: a photo series

So as some of you may already know, I recently got the opportunity to travel to Santiago de Querétaro, Querétaro, Mexico for a study abroad trip. It was an amazing trip that changed my life. Story posts, tip posts, and location posts are soon to come, but I thought I would share with you all the best pictures I took along the way (and pictures that were taken of me)!

  1. Absolutely lovely images. The view from the Mirador is stunning. I haven’t been back to Mexico City for a very long time. I remember claiming a few steps of the Pyramid of the Sun :-).

  2. What great photos! Looks like a wonderful trip! I haven’t been past Tijuana in Mexico and that was when I was a kid!
