The girl behind the mouse
Hello, I’m Sandra and I am The Travel Mouse! I am
31 32 33 years old. I was born and raised in Mexico City and I now live in Phoenix, Arizona.
Living here has been a whole new experience for me. I come from a city with a population of 20 million people in an area of roughly 790 square miles with its metro area. Phoenix, has about 1.8 million people in an area of approximately 517 square miles. As you might already know, Mexico is big and it is very dense. Phoenix is big, however, it’s very spread out. Big difference.
The climate is pretty different as well. I came to live here in the month of July in 2010. What was I thinking?! Phoenix welcomed me with a nice 110°F temperature. In Mexico City we don’t get more than 90°F in the summer. I felt like I had just opened the oven door and stuck my head inside it. I’m kind of used to it by now, though.
I like to travel around as much as I can. Although sometimes time and money hold me back, I try to find a way to get out of the routine and discover new places. And that is exactly what this blog is about. I share stories about the places I visit and the cool things I see. I will also write about something new or interesting I find here in Phoenix. Perhaps a new museum or a nice place to hike. Or maybe something right outside the city that I think it’s worth seeing.
This place has beautiful landscapes and amazing sunrises and sunsets. Maybe I’ll try to include them here so you can see what I’m talking about.
