Our Mission

Who We Are

The Traveling MexicanMaria
Author, Editor, & Founder

I’m a proud first generation Mexican-American that loves to travel! I have over 20 years of personal travel experience, including researching and planning my own itineraries, budgeting, and booking travel arrangements. My experience was garnered while serving in the military, including living in Europe for several years, and currently traveling for leisure. Today, I mostly research and plan my own itineraries. My husband, an expert in his own right, takes care of budgeting and booking arrangements. Together, we are a dynamic traveling duo. When I am not out seeing the world, I teach math.

Hi there, I’ve been traveling both personally and professionally for 20 years, four of which I spent living abroad in Europe and Asia. Through all of this I have learned quite a bit about traveling, especially in regards to the budgeting and booking components. So when my wife sets the destinations, I figure out how to get us there. I hope that some of the information I share with you can not only help you better understand how to plan your trips, but ultimately help make them a reality. When I’m not in vacation mode, I’m managing logistics operations across the U.S.
