How did you get involved in travel?

"After living in various countries of Europe and Latin America, I decided to move to my mother’s country in 2012, which I only knew as a holiday destination of my childhood. I fell in love with the huge variety of landscapes, the authentic kindness of the local people and my appreciation towards food has nowadays become almost a worship."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Ten minutes away from Izamal in Yucatan, i stopped in a tiny village named Pixilá, where i found an abandonned chapel of the henequén golden era. It's a lovely spot to take a walk and pictures. I had lunch in the Magical Village of Izamal (my favorite till now), the local dishes of the Kinich restaurant are delicious. Then i visited the gorgeous yellow convent San Antonio de Padua and climbed up the Kinich Kak Moo pyramid. Finally, i drove to the Port Progreso to see the sunset when suddenly a flock of flamingos appeared, it was just stunning!"
