After our short but sweet stay in New Mexico, my friends and I drove about 5 hours west to visit Tucson*, Arizona. And oh what a lovely, lovely town Tucson is! We stayed for two nights at the cutest Airbnb in old town Tucson and essentially had the best lil' R&R sesh the whole weekend.
Fun fact: our place actually got featured on Airbnb's Instagram account the day we left!
For dinner, we explored the downtown scene and ended up eating some delicious tacos!
Speaking of food, here's some our other meals we home-cooked. Not only was this a great way to save money, it was also an opportunity to utilize that darling kitchen and create some beautiful flat-lays.
Although catching up on school work and editing our photos was a good use of our free time, we decided to to explore our neighborhood (even though the blistering sun was burning our backs the entire time lol). I never knew so much color could be seen on one street!
For our last night, we drove over to see Gates Pass for a breathtaking view of the sunset and boy, we sure were not disappointed.
On our way back home we made a pit stop at a nice cafe only to discover that the "Greetings From Tucson" mural was painted a block away! All in all, this weekend getaway to the Southwest proved to be more than what I could've ever expected. It was an amazing time spent with amazing company and I can't wait to get back on the road to visit again.

*: took me a hot minute to learn that Tucson is pronounced "two-sawn, not tuck-son or two-son."
