Sometimes, you get sick on the road. In our case, before our first international flight with our children, one child was up all night throwing up the night before we left. What do you do if this happens? What should you bring with you on your travels? Should you carry a first aid kit?
It’s about the bathrooms, folks. If you are going to explore off the beaten-tourist-path in Mexico (and I recommend you do), you will need to know a few things about bathrooms here.

There are probably a zillion travel blogs out there and with all kinds of different focuses. I decided to round up my favorites and share them with you! Each have a different focus than this blog, but as I’ve gleaned so much information (and great stories) from them, they are all worth a look!

We are visiting Mexico! I am so excited that we finally get to travel (and a little nervous). The plans are made and now, I have to start packing!
Pro-tip: it’s best if you remember your toothbrush. When you are without a car and very busy, it’s a little difficult to get to an Oxxo (a convenience store in Mexico).
