    Travel: Museo de Arte Moderno

    Museo de Arte Moderno – the Mexico City Museum of Modern Art! It’s worth the visit, from outdoor sculptures to colourful paintings, this place is awakening! We spent a couple hours in the morning checking out the pieces and enjoyed the cool walk around the grounds. Check it out if you have time. Museo de Arte Moderno There is a cost to enter – roughly 5$ Canadian, and well worth it. Oh, and the museum is free on Sundays! We couldn’t visit on the Sunday…

  • Museo Jumex

    Travel: Museo Jumex

    Museo Jumex is a free (yes, free!) museum in Mexico City. It’s beautiful, full of open spaces, and worth visiting if you’re a lover of lines, art, and architecture. We spent about 60 minutes in the museum, the exhibits are huge and my favourite part was the outdoor balconies. Okay, let’s check out some photos! First, I want to share this staircase. There are elevators, and do suggest you take one, they’re massive. I think they only have one set of elevators and they use…

    Mexico City sights, from historical roundabout statues, to park monuments Mexico City, or CDMX, is filled with history, beautiful buildings and some of the most interesting sights.

  • Mexico City Lunch Eats

    Travel: Mexico City Lunch Eats

    Mexico City lunch eats! One of the trickiest meals for a Celiac while travelling is lunch, yet these CDMX eats don’t disappoint. Check out these three places and you’ll be one happy traveller! Why is lunch so hard while travelling? For me, it’s because our location changes from day-to-day. For breakfast, our starting point is the hotel, so it’s easy to navigate. Same with dinner, after a day of sightseeing we usually make our way back to the hotel before heading out for dinner. So…

    Travel: Palacio De Bellas Artes

    Palacio De Bellas Artes is an iconic building and museum in the heart of Mexico City. Enjoy the large parks, the paintings, and the people watching – be sure to check it out if you’re ever in CDMX. We stopped by on a Monday, and then again on a Wednesday and both times it was closed. Luckily for us, we saw all the paintings on the Thursday. Plus, it’s only a 20 minute walk from the Hotel Emporio and the stroll through the park is…

  • Hotel Emporio Mexico City

    Travel: Hotel Emporio Mexico City

    The Hotel Emporio Mexico City is in the Juárez neighbourhood, full of the city’s hustle and bustle. City centre is walking distance, the rates are fair, and the staff are friendly. Overall, a good place to stay in Mexico City! When we visited Mexico City in late October, early November the main attraction was the Mexico City Grand Prix. During race weekend (Thursday – Monday) we stayed at the Hyatt Regency Mexico City. That hotel is way, way nicer than this one. Yet the Hotel…

  • Lucha Libre

    Travel: Lucha Libre

    Lucha Libre – one of the fine arts of Mexico culture. We ventured off to the Mexico Arena to catch the 90 minute show of masked wresting. Not only was the crowd energetic and enthusiastic, some of the moves were wild. Check out the photos and a few videos below! Lucha Libre First up, I’d suggest buying your tickets online first. We visited on a Tuesday and since it was during Day of the Dead celebrations the arena was sold out. Arrive early, since you’ll…
