Hello everyone!  Today, I am sharing yet another blog post about travel; as you can tell, exploring is a huge part of my life!  Anyways, I have a new goal of writing a blog post for every state I have visited.  Ever since I was a little kid, one of my dreams has been to see every state of this country before I turn 18!  I am well on my way, so i thought it would be fun to share with you all my favorite memories and pictures form each state!

New Mexico is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen.  We spent our time in Santa Fe, and all I can say is go buy plane tickets now!  It is absolutely breathtaking here. The art filled streets, dusty red and orange scenery, the most gorgeous sunsets, and the best guacamole you will ever taste all make up this city.

My favorite thing to do in Santa Fe was shop around the town.  This place is a crystal lover’s dream!  In one of these shops filled with Earth’s jewelry, I got a beautiful sphere of rose quartz!  Close to the crystal shops, there was an oxygen bar that my family visited.  Because of the high elevation, we all felt a bit light headed; but this place pumped oxygen into your nostrils (and served delicious smoothies!).  It was definitely a unique experience!

We stayed at the plaza, and close to our hotel was a stunning church.  Inside of this masterpiece, there was a mysterious staircase that was not supported by anything.  It literally just spiraled up to the second level of the church.  No one knows who built this; I guess it was a miracle!  As I am typing this, I am only now realizing the sheer weirdness of this.  Mind blown.

The food here was so amazing!  We spent most dinners on a rooftop overlooking the city. Here, they served quesadillas and played Despacito pretty much every other song (I’m not complaining about either of these things).

Another beautiful part of our trip here was visiting the Georgia O’Keefe Museum.  She was such and inspiring and talented woman, and her art blew me away!  If you are ever in Santa Fe, visiting this museum is a must!

The last thing that stood out to me on this trip was the vast expanses of land.  There were so many beautiful hiking trails here, and I wish we could have explored more!

I didn’t get too many pictures here; hopefully my words can paint the picture and make you want to travel to this beautiful slice of Earth.

grateful, maya
