Burning Calories And Rubber In The Heat Of Oaxaca

Sunday, December 8, 2013

Bicycle touring is an amazing way to travel but it can be slow-going. Our Journey started in Mexico with the plan to pedal south through Central and South America. I imagined cycling would be a romantic way to travel; avoiding the bus schedule we could be free as birds, not to mention feeling fit and […]

Here’s What You Can Expect During A Food Tour Of Veracruz

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

The air outside is thick, but the smoke in Santana’s bar is thicker. Even if I were a non-smoker it would be worth it just to sit in the bar’s tiny, air-conditioned seating area and watch the old men slowly drink themselves into an affectionate stupor at three in the afternoon. This is the first […]

How A Radish Festival In Oaxaca Made Me Feel Like A Mexican

Sunday, January 27, 2013

“Oye chica! Tenga aca. Te invitamos!” Someone was calling to me as I walked by a makeshift tent on the side of the street in Oaxaca’s old center. Curious, I joined the speaker, a young Mexican man, as well as a few others, underneath their tent. They had set up a large folding table which, […]

Top 6 Hipster Neighborhoods Around The World

Thursday, April 26, 2012

Once an evasive creature contained to their natural habitats in Williamsburg, Portland and Austin, hipster culture is now globally ubiquitous. Blame it on cultural imperialism, the undeniable twee delight of appliqué birds, or the sheer convenience of ironic facial hair, just know this: The hipster has reached these international cities, and will no doubt continue to penetrate the far-flung […]

Skip The Beach, Visit The Real Mexico

Thursday, March 8, 2012

I know that for most people, Mexico this time of year means beaches, beer funnels, lounge chairs, diving excursions, 600-thread count sheets, sunny weather, and nights slept on the floor of dingy jail cells while being protected by someone named “Big Hector” who for some reason has taken an interest in your well-being (okay, that […]

How Widespread Is Violence In Mexico Really?

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

I’m not one for taking to heart the warnings of danger when traveling.
