I am a proud Canadian living south of the border in Cancun, Mexico. I left the snow behind for the sand, and am learning to love my new life!

Doing things up Veracruz style!!!
This post is going to be short and sweet, but I just can't help myself. Last Sunday hubby and I decided to hit the road and drive to the city of Veracruz, Mexico from our home in Cancun. Literally on a whim. I believe it took us in total close to 13 hours actual driving time, but we did decide to spend a night in a city called Villahermosa which is in the State of Tabasco. Beautiful little city, and I'll have some pictures to post when I get home.
Veracruz has been a great treat, and a place where we've talked about visiting together for a while. My suegro is actually from the State of Veracruz, and has always told us stories about why we needed to visit. Not that we really needed them as an excuse. We have been staying in the historical part of Veracruz which has allowed us to walk around, and really enjoy the Zocalo. One of the things I wish Cancun had..... a "real" Zocalo.
As I mentioned above, short and sweet, but here are a couple of photos I've taken over the last few days.... A full trip report to come when I return to Cancun. In the time being I am going to enjoy my time here in Veracruz to the fullest.
