Lauren (hi, that would be me) is a Yorkshire girl who was navigating life as a feminist in machista Mexico City, before starting her travels round South America in late September 2017. Her vague plan is to end in Paraguay, but honestly, who the hell knows.

While real life Lauren’s interests range anywhere from Netflix to overthinking, Northern Lauren mainly focuses on musings about life abroad, as well as practical travel tips for the Mexican capital and beyond, with a penchant for great (street) food, cultural questions, colourful street art and a sprinkling of feminist thinkpieces thrown in for good measure.

You might have noticed that I don’t include itineraries on my blog. That’s because I think everyone should have a personalised plan for their trip, which they (hopefully) put together from my insider advice. However, if you’re feeling overwhelmed with planning, I can help you put together the perfect itinerary for your next trip to Mexico. Please email me (or message me through the contact page) if you’re interested in hiring me as an itinerary planner and we can discuss personalised prices and recommendations.
