I'm back from my friends epic destination wedding in Oaxaca, Mexico and ready to dish. You know when you need a vacation from your vacation? This was one of those trips in the very best of ways. My friends, Emily and Nick, had a group of 60 of the coolest, most talented, funny, and clever friends and family present for their nuptials. It was also one of those experiences where you bond quickly with your fellow travel mates because you're together day in and day out for a week.
To make a sweeping statement about the region, Oaxaca is know for their mole, mezcal, embroidery and black pottery. But honestly that is just the tip of the iceberg. The cultural is so rich and vibrant. I'm already plotting my next trip back.
The highlights of the trip, beyond the wedding, were the sights and experiences we had inside the city proper and in the outlaying villages. Which I'll delve into soon.
Oh and there was also a celeb spotting in Oaxaca. Not by me unfortunately, because that was the one time I decided to call it an early night. But the rest of the group bumped into Adrian Grenier at a dive bar. Apparently he was in town tasting mezcal.
So this was just a taste of Oaxaca, I'll circle back around and talk specifically about the food and detailed adventures next time. Also, make sure you follow me on Instagram, @HissAndTell, for more pics from Oaxaca.
