This Photographer Booked a One-Way Ticket to Mexico

This is one way to cure the winter blues.

While battling a grim London winter, my mind frequently wandered to the sunny streets of Mexico. A change of scenery was needed, so I bought a one-way ticket with no set agenda. Aside from meeting Australian friends in Mexico City, I planned to hit the road and take each day as it came.

I was treated like family by strangers, explored the Oaxaca coastline from the back of a truck, napped in mountain caves overlooking Tepoztlan, swam in natural salt pools among endless valleys in Hierve el Agua, walked through Monte Alban’s ancient ruins, made friends with a lot of dogs, and ate many quesadillas. The endless days of incredible food, beautiful coastlines, magical mountain towns, and friendly people made it one of my most memorable trips.
