What Makes You Happy

It’s Day 19 of the #Blogtober14 Challenge with The Daily Tay and Helene in Between!  Rasa here with today’s post, “What makes you happy.”

What Makes You Happy - Guachimontones Pyramid

There are a lot of things that make me happy – spending time with my husband, cats and good friends, shopping, eating amazing food, but what really makes me happy?  Exploring.

I love exploring a new part of my city.  Toronto is great for that…it’s filled with pockets of completely different neighborhoods.  I love finding a new ethnic grocery store somewhere and wandering around in it trying to figure out what I should get to cook.  This is something I do with my Mom all the time.

I also love exploring new cities when I’m on vacation, but my favourite thing to explore?  It’s always historical sites.  I love trying to reconnect with the past.  How did these people live?  What did they eat?  Every time that we’ve gone to Mexico, I’ve made it a point of searching out a new historical site for us to check out.   The pictures on this post are from Guachimontones , which we visited while vacationing in Puerto Vallarta.

It was exciting because it was still in the process of being restored, so you could see the newly restored pyramids as well as piles of rocks.  Honestly, it amazes me that the archaeologists can take what looks like a pile of rocks and reconstruct these amazing structures.

  1. I LOVE going out exploring. I’ve lived in the same place for over 10 years and still haven’t seen all of the city! My husband and I love going hiking too.

    • That’s what I love about exploring my city, Julie! There’s always something new and interesting…even in places that I thought I knew.
