I sat on these photos from my trip to Mexico City for the longest time and I finally decided to go ahead and edit them. Over the past year, I looked at them over and over again, like something very precious that you feel like you need to cherish and keep for yourself. As if, travel like we knew, would never exist again. I also felt like talking about travel wasn’t very sensible for the past few months. But then, out of nowhere, a few weeks ago, I got this tiny spark of light and hope that gave me just the right amount of faith that one day, we would be able to travel again. So here I am, sharing this pre-pandemic trip to the Mexican capital. P.S.: I absolutely do not encourage out of country, non-essential travel for the time being. Please, stay safe at home until it’s safe again.
Travelling to Mexico City before the pandemic
When I decided to travel in February 2020, COVID seemed like something very foreign that would not hit North America so soon. I remember sitting at the airport, with no mask, enjoying my Popeyes chicken on my makeshift table while waiting to board my flight to Mexico City. At that time, nobody knew what our lives would look like only a year later.
My life as a travel photographer has drastically changed. For the past few years, I used to travel locally or internationally at least once a month. For now, I just can’t see myself travelling like I used to and this whole situation made me think about how to travel better in the future.
