About Me

Hi, welcome!

My name is Ilse, I am Mexican, and I have been living out of suitcases since 2015.

As many people, I never knew what I wanted to do when I grew up, the one thing I always had very clear is that I wanted to travel. Travel, travel, travel.

I have been a barista, a receptionist, a cashier, an au pair, a wardrobe assistant, and the one thing they all had in common is that either the job made me travel or the money it provided was being saved up for the next adventure.

So after 5 years of adventures I finally decided to put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and do what I always enjoyed the most; share things that I have learned from traveling, recommendations of my favorite bars, restaurants, bookshops, hotels, etc.

I love to be able to help family or friends when they plan a trip, so I want this space to be just that, me giving recommendations to a loved one, in the hopes that I can also help you find your new favorite breakfast spot in that new city.

Thanks for visiting my blog and I hope you find information that is useful to you in some shape or form. If you do please let me know, I would love to hear from you!
