Last month I spent a week in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, visiting family. T or C (as the locals call it) is known for their natural hot springs. They have a bathhouse district with ten different spas where you can pay for to soak. I challenged myself to visit five different spas while I was in town.
My first soak of the week was at La Paloma Too on Austin, in the Hot Spring District.
This is a cute little scrapbook that I made after my mom and I took a 4-day road trip in New Mexico in 2017. I’m planning another trip out to visit her in March so I’m reminiscing about my first New Mexico experience.
All of the images that I used in my scrapbook are photos printed from my phone, instant photos from my Instax mini, or clippings from papers I picked up along my way. When I’m travelling I tend to accumulate a bunch of paper ephemera: brochures, flyers, postcards, maps, informational handouts, admission tickets, wrist bands, even stickers. At the end of every day on a trip I transfer any paper that I’ve picked up throughout the day into my suitcase. When I get home, I go through them and keep anything that’s interesting or important. This project was a great way to display the things that I wanted to remember and not have to hang on to a bunch of extra stuff!
