Albuquerque, New Mexico

Albuquerque, New Mexico

It’s interesting to note that many people, even U.S. residents, believe that Albuquerque is a part of Mexico instead of the USA. The confusion is somewhat justified since the city is in a state called New Mexico, albeit one of our own. Albuquerque is said to be a distinct blend between American and Mexican cultures – two cultures that have historically coexisted and intertwined in some significant way. The city also has a certain aura of combat around it, with an astounding amount of Latin and American fighters making the city their home. A fighting culture While I’ve never been one for fighting, I’ll still enjoy learning more about the fighting spirit and what it’s like being around people who partake in physical combat every day of their lives. Of course, I’m also looking forward to visiting the elevated terrain – the thin air on many of the hills and mountains in Albuquerque is said to be an experience of its own. Supposedly, exercising in an elevated area improves your cardiovascular health and sense of well-being. Aside from putting this theory to the test, I’m also looking forward to getting more in touch with the Mexican culture – especially their renowned cuisine, which I’ve been a long-time fan of despite it not being particularly available where I live.




Not a lot of people consider Seattle to be a prime tourist destination, even when choosing only from American cities. Much of it is due to the city’s weather – clouds and rain seem to be the grey motif of the city. I seem to be part of the minority that finds this to be part of the charm of the place, and look forward to visiting it.


What with TV being one of my vices, several of my favorite shows and movies instilled in me the belief that Seattle offers quite a few things to visitors and residents alike. From Chronicle to The Killing, movies and television shows gave me a good glimpse of the city and I am quite eager to see it in person.


The buildings and structures


In particular, the architecture seems to be very metropolitan, and it seems that it blends with the city’s notorious weather very well. Of course, the part of seattle I’m most looking forward to visiting is the Space Needle – I can’t imagine someone wouldn’t want to witness this amazing structure in person, as I find it to be one of the most awe-inspiring landmarks in America or even the entire world, especially considering it was built several decades ago.
