Hello everyone! I'm coming with some fun blogs on the way starting with this one from my recent Mexico trip. It was my first time there and I experienced many 'firsts.' My husband and I got to spent our first Christmas there and I'd say it was a success. We stayed in a town just north of
Mexico City called San Miguel– quite a magical little town.
Recently listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the history of San Miguel dates back to 1542 when it played an important role as a hub in the silver trade. It's known for its well-preserved Colonial and Spanish architecture, which blew me away. Everything, every corner was filled with beauty. It was street after street of cobblestone and various eclectic shops like art galleries, modern boutiques, restaurants, and the churches. I've never seen such beautifully designed churches before. When we went, they were still having service while hundreds of tourists stood at the doors to take photos. Interesting way of doing church! One of the churches was a particularly special spot since we found out it was where egg nog was made. We even got to try it and see the nuns who prepared them.
We stayed in this little boutique hotel called Dos Casas. It was small, unique, and personal, which was one of its perks. They had the best chef in Mexico who prepared our meals, including a special Christmas menu. We were so blessed to be able to spend our holidays here! Take a look at the rest of our trip:
