San José del Pacífico, a town in the clouds

Located between the City of Oaxaca and the relaxing beaches of its namesake state, San José del Pacífico is a small town located on top of the mountains, surrounded by a constant layer of clouds and forest. It is mostly unknown and ignored by tourists, but those who stay are in for a big surprise.

Inside the 20 de Noviembre market

I arrived at Oaxaca very early in the morning, after one of the worst nights on a bus ever, so I was a little bit tired, to say the least.

Eating my way through Guadalajara

The first thing I noticed when I mentioned I was going to Guadalajara is that everyone over there is super proud of all their local food, so doing a post about most of their specialities was a no-brainer.

Sure enough, that’s what best represents my home state, but there’s also a whole other world if you travel deeper into the… (continue reading)

The famous Omelette Man saved my ass in Jodhpur

It was 2011 and it was the last part of my 2 month trip in Southeast Asia, where I traveled with an ex-girlfriend through China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and India. We were in Jodhpur, the beautiful Blue City, with the imposing Mehrangarh Fort as a background, craving some non-indian food since our stomachs were having… (continue reading)

La Huasteca Potosina

This is a small summary of my trip to La Huasteca Potosina, which is in the state of San Luis Potosí, Mexico. I’d been looking forward to this trip for weeks and I was so excited to leave Mexico City that I went to the bus station way too early and had to wait there for… (continue reading)
