I went to visit my brother in Mexico in 2014 and fell head over heels with the country, so I stayed. Four years later, my passion for this country, primarily Mexico City, has not abated.I have eaten my way round much of the country but there are always new dishes to try out, whether that’s on a street corner or the latest fusion restaurant serving a mind-blowing meal.
Since moving here, my latent interest in Art and Architecture has blossomed into a more serious affair. Mexico City boasting more museums and cultural institutions than most cities in Europe. The history of the Mesoamerican culture is curated in incredible and loving ways, jostling with Mayan pyramids, Frida Khalo’s legacy and other dynamic art movements. I feel deprived if I don’t go to at least five exhibitions a week (and find at least two new places to eat).
So yes, I am rather enamoured with Mexico, and am lucky enough to now call it my home. I moved here after eight years working in recruitment and then communications and crisis management in London. I became very adept at problem-solving and pre-empting the different outcomes of each situation; skills I find useful when curating travel in such a massive, and occasionally dysfunctional, country. It helps that I have a great network of friends and colleagues who have made Mexico such an enchanting place to live.
