My happiest childhood memories are of standing on the rocks with my brother as the waves splashed at our feet. We'd explore between all the crevices looking for sea creatures and when it was time to head back to our parents, we'd follow the line where the ocean meets the sand hunting for hermit crabs. As a family we've always been water lovers and with this in mind, I decided that my next trip had to be centered around the sea. With a fondness of colour, and Día de Muertos art and skulls, the natural conclusion was Mexico. The trip began in Mexico City, tasting the cities' culinary delights and absorbing myself in the local art scene. After a few days of the Mexican City smog and a couple of nosebleeds later, I travelled to Tulum craving the tranquility of the Caribbean coast.
