So, I climbed a volcano in Mexico

So, I climbed a volcano in Mexico

When you think about Mexico, you are probably not thinking of a country that is geared up for adventure tourism. Mexico is known for its great beaches and delicious food, but if you are after a long hike or a climbing experience, this country probably isn’t the first that springs to mind. But anybody who...
Exploring the gay beaches of Mexico

Exploring the gay beaches of Mexico

The next time that you group your friends together for a gaycation, there is only one place that you should visit and that place is Mexico. As well as finding yourself in the land of delicious tacos, ridiculously cheap beer, and hot Latins, you will also have the opportunity to spend time on the gay-gay-gay...
Mexico City's pulque revolution

Mexico City’s pulque revolution

WTF is pulque? – I hear you ask. Well, pulque is a traditional Mexican alcoholic drink that resembles fruit flavoured semen in both taste and texture. Wait, come back. It’s actually really nice, and its popularity is on the rise here in Mexico City. It is made from the agave plant, which is exactly the...
A Mexico City guide for the sweet toothed

A Mexico City guide for the sweet toothed

No doubt about it – Mexico City is a foodie paradise. But it’s not all tacos, gringas, and tamales. Mexicans also love their sugar, and can often be found shoving sweets, ice cream, popcorn, cakes, churros, and pastries into their mouths. I don’t even have much of a sweet tooth, but here in Mexico City...

Photos: Market Day in Zaachila, Oaxaca

If you are visiting Oaxaca, it imperative that you do not limit your trip to the city of Oaxaca itself. One of my favourite things to do when visiting this part of Mexico is to visit the outlying towns and villages on their market days. There are a number of amazing small towns not far...
Staying in Cancun: A comparison of 3 hostels

Staying in Cancun: A comparison of 3 hostels

For somebody who doesn’t like the beach, I sure have been finding myself in Cancun a lot. Why so? Because international connections from Cancun are cheaper than from other parts of the country. In October 2013, I flew from Cancun to London, in December I flew from London to Cancun, and just earlier this month...
The cost of food shopping in Mexico City

The cost of food shopping in Mexico City

When I was on my backpacking trip last year, I ate out for pretty much every meal. When you stay in a guesthouse or hotel, there is usually not too much opportunity for cooking, and in southeast Asia it was cheaper to eat food from the street anyway. Now that I am living in Mexico,...
Mexico City. It’s crazy but not that crazy.

Mexico City. It’s crazy but not that crazy.

If you have never visited Mexico City (or Distrito Federal as we call it here), what are your ideas about the Mexican capital? I’m sure that you are thinking that it is bursting with people, that it is difficult to walk on the street, that it’s impossible to get anywhere because of the traffic, that...
Hierve El Agua:  Heart stopping amazingness in Oaxaca

Hierve El Agua: Heart stopping amazingness in Oaxaca

At the end of January, I was super fortunate to be able to return to one of my favourite places in the whole world, Oaxaca, after first visiting in 2010. Oaxaca is a magnificent place. The streets are full of magic – you can smell Mexican hot chocolate on the street corners, see Zapotec women...
My 3 favourite things about Mexico

My 3 favourite things about Mexico

As you probably know by now, I am living in Mexico City these days. The city is perfectly positioned in the centre of the country so that I can take exciting trips and explore other parts of the country, and in fact, right now I am sitting in a cafe in Oaxaca and wondering how...
What did I get up to in Cancun?

What did I get up to in Cancun?

So, you know by now that I am living in Mexico City. Unfortunately, taking a flight from the UK to Mexico City is not so cheap. BUT, taking flight from the UK to Cancun is hella cheap. Like, I actually can’t believe the prices kinda cheap. My ticket from the UK to Cancun was £195....
So, I live in Mexico City now

So, I live in Mexico City now

The last couple of months have been supremely weird for me. After ten months of travel across seven different countries, I felt the pangs of homesickness desperately. I love travelling but all of the people I love are at home in London. I just wanted to see my family and friends, so I booked myself...
