Let's be friends!

Imagine yourself sitting under a palm tree, sipping from a cold coconut, looking out at a turquoise ocean while a tropical breeze flows through your hair?
Sounds good, right?

I thought so too.

You see, I grew up in cold, rainy Canada and spent much of my childhood wondering why my dad left his homeland (California) and moved to the frigid, grey north.

Literally WHY??

Naturally, it came as no surprise when I announced to my family and friends that I was moving to Los Angeles. I think most of them were shocked I hadn’t done it sooner! After 5 years of fighting traffic, hipsters, and sub-par tacos, I decided California wasn’t quite what I was looking for either.

Feeling pretty chill in this cenote.

So, here I am in the balmy Mayan Riviera, and I’ve never felt more at home!

Although it came about rather abruptly, my decision to move to Mexico wasn’t a hasty one. I had lived here for a year during college and become completely enamored with the country, and its people.

Mexico has so much more to offer than warm weather and tacos. There is also cold weather, tamales, picadas, enchiladas…

I digress.

My point is, Mexico has a wonderful, fascinating culture, incredible scenery and the nicest people on earth. I could easily spend the rest of my life exploring ancient ruins, visiting beautiful destinations, and learning about Mexican culture — in fact, I just might!

I hope you’ll follow along as I share my adventures and experiences exploring Mexico.   SaveSave
