SW Roadtrip… Albuquerque, New Mexico

Our first destination on our southwest road trip was Albuquerque, New Mexico. And yes, we’re obsessed with Breaking Bad. So here’s a fun fact, did you know that Breaking Bad was originally set in Riverside CA? Crazy right? They ended up in Albuquerque for tax purposes. This is what the creator Vince Gilligan said about the decision to relocate “California skies are usually blank, blue skies or a marine layer comes in and it’s gray,” he said, “but Albuquerque has these cumulus clouds that give you a scope of the distance out there. It’s amazing.” And what he says is so true, the skies are much more blue and the clouds are really something else. The southwestern landscape is really my favorite.

This wasn’t part of our tour. This was our airbnb hostess’ car.. pretty awesome right?

So if you find yourself in the ABQ  this is the website that we referred to for the different spots: http://www.lonelyplanet.com/usa/travel-tips-and-articles/a-do-it-yourself-breaking-bad-tour-of-albuquerque
