Lauren is a Yorkshire girl navigating life as a feminist in machista Mexico City, but not for much longer – she’s finally upping sticks and travelling round South America later this year (stay tuned for posts all about that).

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.

Alternatively, if you love my content, want to see more and are feeling generous, consider sending a donation to keep Northern Lauren running. Currently, this blog only operates on sleepless nights and caffeine, so you’d really be helping out!

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.
