My Trip To Mexcio City In 2012 #TravelingWithMinette

I noticed that I’ve never written a blog post about my experience in Mexico City but, I do often share throwback Thursday pictures on my Instagram. So I thought, why not share my life changing experience and my old crappy photos that I’ve taken with my iPhone 4 to my faithful golden readers? I also realize I’ve come a very long way with my photography, who says you need a professional camera to start off with being a photographer? So! Here is my 2012 journey to Mexico City.

I’ve never been on a plane prior to this trip to Mexico, so this was a good experience for me. The word excited, does not express the true emotions that came from this experience; for the first time I felt like I belonged somewhere. I knew in that moment that I was meant to travel the world and see all of God’s glory.

Meet the girls.

On the left Holly, Middle Paola, right Katie.




One of the tasks that was presented to us was to repaint the older girl’s room at the orphanage. I was so thrilled to hear that they love stars and the sky because I can relate. Katie, who’s an amazing artist helped created the girls dream room.  

Even though I only spent a week in the beautiful city, I made sure my eyes and iPhone 4 camera captured every moment so that I could always relive these memories. We went sightseeing, visited one of the most popular pyramids, ate at one of the best restaurants; and visited a Museum.

Quality time means everything to me and it is my strongest love language. Not being able to speak their language didn’t stop me from having an amazing time with these beautiful, funny and sweet kids. We played volleyball, went to the pool, had a movie night with the girls and much more.

I always admire Mexicans, growing up I felt they were unappreciated just like us Haitians, so it was a pleasure to be in their country for a week and to be reminded why I love them so much. They are hard workers, honest, loyal and they appreciate BLACK WOMAN. My overall trip humbled me and made me value life, including my parents. A new passion was birthed to travel and photograph what my eyes see.

I have to take time to acknowledge the woman who helped make all this possible, Mrs. Sandi. I struggled to find donations for the trip and get my passport but, this lady right here, God bless her heart, helped me make a way. Thank you Mrs. Sandi, I will forever appreciate you.

Hello my lovely readers, I guess I should do a quick bio about me. Well, for one I am not your average woman I make living Holy look fun. Yes! I am a believer but, I AM NOT PERFECT nor do I pretend to be. I love my city Kissimmee, Florida was raised here all my life I rep it like I do with my nationality, Haitian-American. Don't like long walks on the beach because Florida is too hot and the birds here are mean, but, I enjoy watching the sunrise on my rooftop. My two favorite things that God created are the Moon and Stars, notice I didn't say humans? I am totally kidding, my love for people is deeper than my dimples. I have many passions one of them is doing missionary work, I enjoy the company of people from different cultures; I also admire photographing nature places I've traveled too and priceless moments. On July 28, 1992 was the best day that ever happens to my mother that is why she named me after her, Myriam Norgaisse. Thanks mother now I have to live the rest of my life getting our mail mixed up. Well, that was somewhat of a short bio. Enjoy my blog & more. Also, don't forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel at Keep Up With The Golden Life STAY GOLDEN!!!
