Oaxaca Mágico - Part I
Where to begin. Let's start off by saying that our trip to Oaxaca has been on our minds since we first booked our airline tickets at the beginning of the year. I know that it's only natural to constantly think about an upcoming vacation, but this time it was just a different feeling. I never really like to get all worked up, and have a bunch of plans for vacations, because more often than not there can be a little bit of a let down. This trip the only plans we made were our flights, and the hotel stay. Other than that, we would roam aimlessly through the beautiful city of Oaxaca, and of course eat until our hearts delight.
This plan worked out absolutely perfectly. Not too mention, that we were traveling with our nearly 2 year old son, and actually having a set schedule doesn't really seem to matter any more. He was so good, and could not get enough of his new surroundings. I mean, you can't blame him, being about 2 and a half feet tall, running around the Zocalo, and playing with his new favorite toy, a balloon that was twice his size.

We took the red eye flight out of Tijuana, and arrived in Oaxaca in the early morning. Our first full day, was a bit of a whirlwind, but I most definitely remember the gorgeous colors, my first Tlayuda, and watching the rain pour from our cafe seats. Oh, and then there was starting the day off with Pan de Yema and Oaxacan hot chocolate. Yes, we brought some chocolate home, and yes, we will be drinking Chocolate con agua in the comfort of our own home.
My upcoming posts will take you all on a photo journey through our magical vacation in Oaxaca. Sit back, and enjoy the beauty of culture, sights, and delicious cuisine. This trip was all about gaining inspiration, and bringing it back home with me.
