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. She wishes she could say a life of full-time travel is for her, but fuck me, it really is not. So…all she has to figure out now is what is. 


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.
