One more time folding clothes into their tiniest version to hopefully make fit all into a 23 kg suitcase but this time as much as I adore to travel, well, I´m exhausted. You know, I have been literally living in a suitacse for the last 9 months so finally reached my limits. I want a home. Gratefully, we´re in the right direction to that.

Inshallah.

Without a home the idea of a kitchen is just a remote memory.

So, how about to share some news and my March faves?

I made up a lil Christmas gift guide with tons of mexican flare for you all. Many, many times, friends and readers all over the world ask me to recommend them what to buy, do or eat while in my muy delicioso country. Most of those times, I find difficult to put up an inmediate perfect list while others, is just impossible to explain what achiote looks and taste like. So here´s my list. Whenever I travel to my hometown I make sure to pack  some of these cuties when is time to fly away.

Two weeks ago I was invited by Chef Lynda Balderas to join a private tour offered to some big potatoes in order to promote the installation of a Ruta del Arroz in Jojutla, Morelos, México; which if implemented will not only bring a new foodie tourism segment in the region but will help campesinos to market in a more effective way their excellent product, boost the local economy and improve the quality of life of these hardworking men, women and their families.

Hola amigos, in this third travel collaboration Daniela Pacheco takes us to a nordic paradise. Get yourself cozy with a cup of tea and read her adventures.

Where do you think she will take us next time? – Heidi

Mostly I travel by myself, usually making some stops to visit friends that live in other cities or countries. I never planned it that way, it just happened and now it’s how I usually plan my trips and I enjoy it very much.

I get to have all the freedom to organize myself, to go wherever I want and wonder around as I please, stopping to see all the things I find interesting for as long as I need. And then, while visiting friends, I get to feel as if I were home, visit local spots, traditional smells, and every day views, meeting little treasures often missed by tourists while running around one museum to the next and accommodating all the group interests.  Lately I can also get to bring my work with me, and I offer some photo shootings every place I go, so for some days I even feel as if I actually lived in that place. (hint people! stay in touch with Daniela at her fb page to see where is she going next time and possibly you can get a pro photoshoot!). just saying – heidi
