    05 • In Mexico, everyday is Taco Tuesday

    I often tell people I had to move to Mexico because everyday is Taco Tuesday! What I never knew was just how many distinct types of tacos there are in Mexico & Mexico City. I'm a bonafide taco addict who spent about 1 year living in Mexico City, eating (well above & beyond) my fair share of tacos. This podcast will tell you everything you need to know about how to & where to eat authentic Mexican tacos while traveling in CDMX!

    04 • Janine's take on solo female travel safety in Mexico

    Fellow Mexico travel blogger Janine (janineintheworld.com) joins me to further examine the "Is Mexico safe?" question. From her blog: This is BY FAR the most frequently asked question about Mexico in the travel spaces I frequent. The thing is, it’s not actually a very useful question... [because] the answers that typically follow “Is Mexico safe?” tend to be unhelpful at best and flat-out racist at worst.

Daydreaming

As of recent I keep finding myself daydreaming about Mexico.

I’ve seen my fair share of movies that always seem to leave me thinking of exploring what seems to be such a beautiful place.

After stumbling upon Shellys podcast, the desire to plan an adventurous vacation is becoming more of reality.

Maybe it also has to due with the way that Shelly’s voice reminds me of Winona Ryder.

Informative for solo travelers
