I ended up spending almost three days in Albuquerque, New Mexico because of flight delays.
My area was in the high storm season when I decided to do a trip.
When I decided to come back to the house I was able to get as far as New Mexico & then all the flights to our state were cancelled due to the storm. They wouldn’t fly even close to our state. My possibilities were to rent a car & drive minutes to make it home, or hang out in Albuquerque, New Mexico until something opened up. I do not like driving for long periods of time. I do not like worrying about needing to use a bathroom, getting mugged & drinking in a car. I figured I had the currency, the time & I had never been to Albuquerque before. So I got a room at a genuinely nice little chic hotel & ended up staying for almost three days. The hotel had a 1940s theme for each room. The hotel bar was genuinely set up like it was prohibition time which was cool. Another plus was our hotel had a spa where I could get a facial, nails down & a deep tissue massage. I kind of thought I would just stay in our room hanging out the entire time. After a bit of hunting around I found that Albuquerque had a lot to do. I didn’t genuinely want to rent a bike or do a long hike though. I am kind of sluggish in that regard. Instead I looked up the best places to eat in Albuquerque & found a sizable list of restaurants, bakeries & even a cannabis cafe because it is allowed there. I ended up eating a whole bunch of delicious meals while I waited to go home.
