Self discovery.

Which country or location most inspires you?
In Mexico, my to go place is definetly Mazatlán. Lima, Perú, is also a place that makes me happy.

Where would you go back to and why?
Barcelona. I’ve visited twice but I feel there’s never enough time to cover such a beautiful city. And the food is just the best.

Top insider tip for Mexico City.

This is a huge city, so don’t try to cover too much ground if you are making a short visit. Walk around your neighbourhood, have long coffee mornings and longer wine and cocktail nights. Things happen when you are not rushed and just let it flow.

What journey would you most like to go on?

The last few years I’ve been thinking a lot about the Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage. Not for religious reasons, but mostly for the scenery, the culture and the idea of walking to reach a destination.
