5 Reasons Why You Should Go On a Food Tour in Mexico City

eat like a local mexico city

For a girl who has done her fair amount of food tours, I knew I was going to love Rocio’s the second Nico and I rolled up to the pretty corner in Condesa in Mexico City. It all started when she told us about her previous night’s adventures. It involved a bit of drinking, an interesting conversation, a jealous boyfriend and plenty of “honesty hour” conversation which basically had us laughing the entire tour. Her easy familiarity won me over immediately.  We hadn’t…

Five Of My Favorite Neighborhoods in Mexico City

Mexico City is a huge city that feels like millions of micro cities all jammed into one place and to be honest, before visiting, I didn’t know what to expect. Sure some of what I’ve read online is true, it’s chaotic, there’s tons of traffic and pollution is a very real truth. However what surprised me most of all is how awesome of a city this is.

Far from the expansive memories of my Texas past; I have adjusted rather nicely to 60-70 square meters of space. Sure I have no garden, no garage, just one bathroom and a true, dire lack of storage space. This was my choice, I wanted to live in the Oltrarno and honestly, I’ve never been happier. Before, when…

A Wonderful 24 Hours In Rennes, France

There is something about the country of France that I can’t seem to shake; while Italy is home, the good and the bad, over time we find ourselves crossing the border to France I have this overall calm, it’s quite hard to explain. On one occasion of a friend’s weeding last year, Nico and I rented a Fiat 500 from the Paris Beauveau airport (not my favorite) and set off for a week of eating and drinking our way through Normandy and Brittany.…

Five Unmissable Experiences in Rome

There never manages to be an end to really beautiful ways to discover the city of Rome, it’s way too big and dynamic for the likes of finality.

One with 3,000 years of history that can’t easily be ticked off your average travel bucket…
