Ahh yes, hello Getaway House - the trendy phenomenon taking over our timelines.

The Best Co-Working Spaces in Mérida, Mexico

The Best Co-Working Spaces in Mérida, Mexico

Arriving to Mérida in January of 2019, co-working spaces were unheard of here. There were essentially none. However, more and more are popping up and, not only that, the young expat community in Mérida has grown as well (which was also none existent when I arrived). I've found my tribe of young, Black (M)expats who all either work for themselves or are working remotely, like myself, so we often get together for co-working sessions, bouncing ideas off each other and offering up ideas and suggestions on how to elevate our businesses. If you're in Mérida...

The Sh*t No One Tells You About Moving to Merida Mexico

Move to Mexico they said. It'll be fun they said. Your cup will runneth over with tequila and your belly will be full of tacos, they said. "They" made it seem as if moving to Mexico would be unabated paradisiacal bliss. But, what they don't tell you is, in Mérida, it is so hot it feels like you've climbed inside an incinerator, have been reduced to ash and then set on fire again. They also left out the part about how the mosquitos here will suck you dry for every drop of blood you own,...

Best Coffee Shops in Mérida Mexico for Digital Nomads

Best Coffee Shops in Mérida for Digital Nomads

I spend a lot of time in coffee shops. I mean, A LOT! Being a digital nomad, means I spend a lot of time behind the computer. It can be a very isolated world, so my way of being "social" is changing up my scenery, moving beyond the four walls of my apartment and setting up shop in a cute coffee shop. It's the perfect way to be around people, but not necessarily have to interact with them. I'm sure my fellow introverts can fully understand and appreciate this. With so much of my time...

That one time I was almost attacked in Mexico

Notes from my phone February 7, 2020 I’d maintained my composure and kept my cool during the entire brief, but terrifying, experience. But as soon as I stepped into my apartment and the door closed behind me all composure was lost and hyperventilation set in. WHAT THE F*CK JUST HAPPENED?! I grappled with posting this, because I know that so many people fear traveling abroad or traveling solo because of their concern for safety. Posting this is like a big ol, “See! I told you. Traveling is not safe, so I'ma just sit right here and be content.” But,...

Is ‘Better Late Than Never’ Best? Woes of A Wanderer: Moving Abroad After 30

Is 'Better Late Than Never' Best? Moving Abroad After 30: Black woman in a hammock in Bacalar, Mexico

One thought that has remained constant the last year+ of my life is "I wish I'd done this sooner. I wish I'd pursued my passion and moved abroad much much sooner".

Because, I'd be lying if I said I didn't wake up some mornings by the sound of the tick tock from my biological clock. Then, just when the thought seeps into my mind that "Ahhh...
