I’ve always been a huge fan of travel blogs. I event tried my hand at one back in the day on BootsnAll. But back then I never really travelled much and I felt like my trips across the world to visit my then boyfriend (now husband) didn’t really count. Especially when faced with people who were on a RTW trip or on the road full time. So I became discouraged and gave up.

Fast forward a decade or so and here I am starting up In Search of Mexican. I still don’t travel nearly as much as I’d like, but living in Ireland has given me an opportunity to travel more than I ever could have in California.

Cologne at Night

Every summer I head over to Köln (Cologne, Germany) for Gamescom, one of the largest video games conventions in the world. My husband and I have now vowed to take two additional trips every year. In addition to Gamescom we’ll also go on one week long trip and one shorter weekend trip in Ireland or the UK. This year we spent nearly a week in Malta and we’re planning a long weekend in Belfast at the end of October. I may not have a whole lot planned this year, but I’ve been going on trips for years now and have a wealth of knowledge and experiences to share.

One important aspect of this travel blog will be traveling with disabilities. For the last two years I’ve been in a wheelchair whenever I leave the house. I also have a great deal of experience traveling with someone who is deaf. I’ll be talking about each location I’ve been to with both a wheelchair and hearing issues in mind, so if this is of interest to you keep an eye on this space.


Finally, that brings me to the name of the blog, In Search of Mexican. Whenever we travel anywhere my husband and I always research one very important thing and try it out, a Mexican restaurant. Having spent the first 25 years of my life in California I have been programmed to adore Mexican food. Sadly Ireland’s Mexican scene is lacking, though in recent years burrito bars have become a popular trend. It is for that reason I am In Search of Mexican.
