Mexico City: Unpacked

Never have I ever seen a vacation as a chance to not look my best.

Hell, I even make sure I look at least semi-cute when I go to Wal-Mart. And it’s no different when it comes to vacations. And god forbid I scream TOURIST. I like to blend in, even though I usually have a camera strapped to my body.

For Mexico City, I tried to travel light. Normally, I don’t worry about it but flying is a hassle. I tried. Here are some tips:

  • Plan around one pair of shoes. This saves both space and WEIGHT.
  • If jackets are required, plan around one or two, or take a few sweaters to layer.
  • Pack a small variety of pants to mix and match with your tops. No one is going to notice you wore those jeans two days ago.
  • Don’t bother packing multiple outfits for each day. Don’t kid yourself. You won’t change.

Here’s how it all looked once unpacked:

Travel day. We arrived early and went straight to sightseeing.
