Our Mexico Trip/Tour expert Candice Carboo-Ofulue is a cultural journalist from London. Even in her early years as a twitchy toddler, Candice lived to travel. By day, she and her gremlin, Fluffy, adventured into the exotic world that was her Grandmother’s garden, overturning rocks in search of fossils and discovering wonderful species of bird. At night she dreamed of voyage and the foreign lands of Gulliver’s Travels.
Eventually her time arrived. Released from the London School of Economics with a BSc in Sociology, she flung on her backpack and zipped across Eastern Europe and parts of Africa, finally arriving on the shores of Latin America in 2008. When the dust settled, her trail of breadcrumbs leading home had disappeared, and she has been eating tacos and trampling over ancient ruins in Mexico ever since.
Candice is a perceptive observer, a very talented writer, and you are the lucky beneficiary of her skills. She shares her adventures with us and her encounters with “unimportant” people in “obscure” foreign places learning “invaluable” lessons.
