I’m Mexican and my hometown is Miami, so I have been surrounded by Hispanic culture my entire life.

For the purposes of this blog, I’m going to rewind back to January of this year, when I’d just landed at Heathrow Airport for my study abroad semester in London. Prior to the flight, I had looked up ways to get to my home for the next four months in the least expensive yet comfortable […]
