11 Things we just DON'T get about MEXICO
After spending three months here in Mexico, there are just sometimes that we think.... Mexico is confusing!
As expats abroad, every day in our daily vlog we do our best to continue figuring out Mexican norms and figuring out México in general, but there are 7 particular things that we still don't quite get.
In today's video on why Mexico doesn't make sense, we talk about:
- Specific Spanish phrases that make our gringo brains explode
- Something about driving in Mexico
- One way Mexican culture is confusing (hint: kissy, kissy!)
- An article of clothing that almost all Mexicans seem to wear
- The schedule of things
- Ordering one specific type of food in restaurants
- And the WHOPPER... you'll have to watch the video to find out.
Bottom line? Sometimes, Mexico is confusing. There are just some things we don't get about Mexico. Certain differences between the United States and Mexico we have to get used to. Heck, maybe they're just things we will never understand about Mexico. And that's okay! It's all part of the adventure as we are traveling in Mexico.
If you have any thoughts on our bumbles and confusion, please share them in the comments. We are always trying to continue learning Mexican culture and become better familiar with the country, day by day.

MOST CHARMING CITY IN EUROPE? (BRUGES, BELGIUM TOUR) | Eileen Aldis
Bruges, Belgium might just be the most charming city in Europe. If you closed your eyes and imagined a picturesque, fairytale, travel-back-in-time, absolutely breath-taking European city I'd guess that Bruges is pretty close to what's in your head. It's what European vacation dreams are made of. A veritable time capsule of medieval architecture, It's easy to understand why it's a UNESCO World Heritage City. It is rare to see so many streets of buildings all so well preserved. Walking around is like being transported back in time and history here is on another level. This town hall? It was the seat of government for more than six hundred years. This old hospital? It's been a hospital since the 1100s (and only stopped in the 1970s). The reason why Bruges is so well preserved has a twist: the city was too poor to renovate and rebuild. Bruges has experienced periods of great wealth, great poverty, and great wealth. During the down times, citizens didn't have the cash to make 'improvements' to their houses and to this scarcity we owe a great deal! Ironically, the current citizens of Bruges benefit from their forebears' inability to knock things down and rebuild. Bruges is now a huge draw for tourists from around the world who flock to see the same buildings people were too poor to change. Huzzah! This is why I love history!
Our day in Bruges started at the Folklore Museum. It's only 4 Euro and you can get a nice overview of life in the city in the 19th and 20th centuries. Don't forget to look for the black cat who lives there. He's rare to see and is one of a long line of black cats who call the museum home. We then walked (you can walk everywhere) to the Burg Square where you'll find the Stadhuis (town hall) and a little further on is the Grote Markt. The latter is the main square where you'll find see the Belfry (Belfort) and dozens of tourists. Bruges is known for two things: an abundance of beauty and an abundance of tourists seeking it. But no one cares because you're so stunned at the charming city around you. We walked on to the Church of Our Lady where the altar piece is a Michelangelo sculpture of the Madonna and Child. Made of Carrara marble, it's been stolen twice and is now safe again to view at the church. Across the street is Sint-Janshospitaal - the one that was a hospital from the 1100s to the 1970s. Now you'll find religious art and - my favourite - examples of old ambulances. A visit here makes you really appreciate modern medicine. It started to rain and we were getting hungry so we headed to the Friet Museum (Fry Museum). How could we visit Belgium without doing a deep dive into the history of fries?! We wanted to find out why so many people mistakenly call them 'French fries' - we also wanted to eat fries. Check and check. It stopped raining so we ended the Bruges tour by boarding a river cruise because there are parts of the city only visible from the water. I'd definitely recommend a boat ride if you're visiting Bruges - it's relaxing and offers a unique perspective not seen by other means. We absolutely loved visiting Bruges and hope you enjoyed this visit to the jewel of Belgium.

A Day in the Life of Guadalajara During the Week
During the week in Guadalajara, there is so much to do! And one of the best things is that there aren't as many people out as on the weekends. In today's video, we were searching for some things to do in Guadalajara and found our way to Avenida Chapultepec. We got some frozen yogurt ice cream and some tasty food in one of the many restaurants along this bustling street.
During a day in the life of Guadalajara during the week, we also found our way (again) to the same upscale Mexican movie theater where we did our first video about going to the movies in Mexico. (Centro Mago Guadalajara). Unlike our trip to the movies on Friday, there were hardly any people there at the movies in Guadalajara during the week.
On the way to the movie, we talked about the interesting Guadalajara weather lately. Although we've only been experiencing life in Guadalajara Mexico for a few weeks, it's been sunny, windy, cloudy, stormy, and everything in between during that time. The weather in Guadalajara can change at the drop of a hat many times during the day. One of our subscribers said that this is the rainy season, so what else should we expect from Guadalajara weather over the next two months?
This a little bit different video than we usually put out, so let us know what you think. If you like seeing a day in the life of Guadalajara and other things we do in Guadalajara during the week, give us some feedback in the comments. Thanks for watching!
The Truth About El Paso Texas
There is so much negativity around El Paso Texas about crime, immigration, and a border wall. The stories you hear can terrify you and deter you from even visiting El Paso. However, the month that we were there, we were blown away by the beauty of this city. This video is to shine a light on what is kept in the dark about El Paso but to also inspire everyone to see the world for themselves instead of listening to someone with an agenda. This is the truth about El Paso.
We visited El Paso Street, seen the Port of Entry, and were amazed by beautiful Art and History Museums, along with The Holocaust Museum. We even stopped at The Tap to try their world famous nachos. There was so much to experience and we fell in love with the culture.
Visit El Paso
Hay tanta negatividad hacia El Paso, sobre el crimen, inmigracion y el muro fronterizo.
Son historias terrorificas que te asustan y puede que incluso te aleje de visitar esta ciudad.
Sin embargo, durante nuestra estancia de un mes aqui, El Paso nos cautivo con su belleza.
Este video es con el fin de darle algo de luz a lo que se ha tapado con oscuridad acerca de El Paso, pero tambien para inspirar a todos a que veais el mundo con vuestros propios ojos en vez de solo escuchar a otros que tienen su propia agenda y objetivo. Esta es la verdad acerca de El Paso.
Visitamos la calle de El Paso, el puerto fronterizo, y nos deslumbro lo bonito que son los museos de arte e historia, incluyendo el museo del holocausto. Paramos a comer en el TAP, y probamos su mundialmente famosos Nachos. Hay tanto que experimentar y nos enamoramos de su cultura.
