Passport To

Mexico City

July 17th, 2017

The idea to go to Mexico City happened on a whim; it seemed that almost without warning, I was on a direct flight to CDMX. It was a trip that was meant to be for Claire ZinneckerKristen Kilpatrick and me. The three of us were all recently out of long-term relationships and in serious need of a little fun. For a last-minute trip that we spent virtually zero time planning, our time in Mexico City was full of unexpected magical moments and so beautiful that we’re already planning to go back. We had a hard time not oversharing on social media (I pushed hard for the hashtag #brokenheartsclub but we ended up settling on #theThreeAmigasCDMX.) With incredible historic architecture and a world-renowned food scene, it was hard to believe that this very European feeling city is just a few hours south of the United States. After three days of shopping, museums and food, we considered our mission accomplished. It was truly impossible to think about love lost when we were in a place so energetic, so cosmopolitan, and above all, colorful.

    Truly a fantastic color inspired trip, I agree the pink stairs are to die for and the BLUE house is something to dream about.

    To all you 3 ‘heart broken’ gals, honestly if you gorgeous gals, totally creative ones, very cute and smart gals, will get over those old fashion broken hearts (medically not correct) you ALL can.

    Did you feel safe in Mexico City? I am doing a girl’s trip with my 4 best friends to Cancun/Quintana Roo and was thinking about making a stop for a few days in Mexico City…

      Hi Victoria! Good question. I’m happy to report that I felt safe the entire time I was in Mexico City. I highly recommend using Uber there instead of cabs. The Ubers are safe, clean, and friendly. Some of the cabs aren’t so great. Make sure your group sticks together while you are there, especially at night. Don’t buy or use drugs there. You’ll have a blast!
