We have spent July 2021 in Mexico. Starting from Riviera Maya, driving through the country – Quintana Roo, Yucatán, Campeche, Veracruz – till Ciudad del México and coming back via Puebla, Oaxaca & Chiapas. Unforgettable experience! This travel series narrates all our Travel Stories from Mexico, experiences, happy and funny moments, as well as the things that we found a bit disappointing…¡Órale!

As you might know our mission is to share something relevant, something authentic, something real, something cool, something interesting, something personal & something different, via our travel stories & images. We are focusing on ideas from local sources, giving tips that are usually unknown for travelers and foreigners, guides to secret places which only the guy from the given neighborhood could know about, to the hidden picturesque view, with recommending everything besides the obvious: the local real feel, the adventure of discovering the unknown, the authenticity, culinary guide to the meals that locals are really cooking and eating at home, and much more. Hope you will read our Travel Stories from Mexico, feel inspired and enjoy the journey, as much as we do!
