Oaxaca's street art: Part 2

Oaxaca’s street art: Part 2

One of the first ever posts I created for my humble little blog was about Oaxaca’s street art. The first time that I visited Oaxaca was in 2010 and at that time I had travelled to relatively few places. I was enraptured by everything around me, but now that I am living here, I realised...
Does London have the best arts culture in the world?

Does London have the best arts culture in the world?

It’s about eight months since I’ve been in my beloved London, and it’s at about this time that I start to feel pangs of homesickness. Not the kind of homesickness that makes me want to up and leave my new home in Mexico, but homesickness nevertheless. One of the things that I really miss about...

Oaxaca street foods: Part 1 – Nieves la Soledad

If you don’t know too much about glorious Oaxaca in central-south Mexico, you might not be aware that this place is a bonafide gastronomic paradise.

Vintage shopping in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Hoooraaaay.

When I visited my family in New York in Easter Time, the thing right at the top of my agenda was shopping. I am so the opposite of a minimalist traveller, and I like to have ALL my clothes with me at once. Right now, I am living in Oaxaca and I have about 15...
What about Glasgow Pride 2014?

What about Glasgow Pride 2014?

Living in Mexico is awesome, but there are times when I get little flutters of homesickness – particularly when British summertime is in full swing.
