Albuquerque was beautiful and I’m not gonna over-exaggerate but it was so amazing. Hotel Albuquerque was beautiful and the village around it too. We were lucky to have gotten to come in the winter to see one of their special traditions where they put candles inside paper bags and display them around town. We also visited Sandia Peaks - It is believed that the name Sandia (Spanish for Watermelon) was given to the mountains for the pinkish colour that they change to during the sunset. The tramway there, is worth taking because you can get to see the breathtaking views of the snow. Another one of the best things I’ve seen there is the Albuquerque Museum where we got to see the exclusive show of Jim Henson - The creator of Sesame Street. Albuquerque was definitely worth visiting and honestly I can’t wait to come back! I loved learning about their culture and the beauty of the place!

I think I’m in love with this beautiful city. Getting to see Santa Fe in the winter was magical...the snow glistening around me covering the amazing architecture like a soft blanket is soo worth seeing. The cathedrals there-especially The Cathedral Bascilica of St. Francis of Assisi. It’s one of the oldest Cathedrals in the United States and it was totally worth it. The best part of Santa Fe for me was Meow Wolf - an explorable, immersive art installation filled with technology....it was such an amazing experience - I was able to literally walk through a refrigerator that led me into sets of Alice in wonderland themed rooms. Along with that the jewelry shops and the stores on plaza street next to our hotel Elderado there, are beautiful and definitely worth visiting. Also, Canyon Ranch was amazing because it was a street full of art exhibitions and being an artist, it was worth getting to see all these beautiful art pieces by different artists. I can’t believe my vacation here is almost over...I miss it already.
