Hi I’m Ayngelina
Travel and food consumes my life.
Eight years ago I left a career in advertising, bought a one-way ticket to Mexico and started traveling.
My goal is to inspire you to lead an adventurous life, but my kind of adventure doesn’t mean hiking Everest. It’s getting out of your comfort zone, traveling to delicious destinations and cooking amazing food at home.
But hey I’m here to help!
I write food guides about where to eat, traditional food and most importantly cultural nuances so that you won’t order ceviche for dinner (huge mistake) or a cappuccino in the afternoon.
I’ve made a lot of mistakes and a lot of locals have laughed at me (mostly the French). So I create guides to make you feel comfortable knowing that you can go to a country and know exactly how to order, what to get and how to fit in with local slang.
Eight years ago I thought my trip to Mexico would be a short-term career break but I never went back to her old life. Instead I continued to explore the world through food, following my stomach and discovering new cultures. I was even crazy enough to date a chef and open a restaurant at one point.
On Bacon is Magic I share the best food around the world and how to make it at home, and every now and then a personal post about what it’s like to wander the world. It’s not all delicious, but it certainly isn’t boring.
