Merry Christmas from Tulum Mexico
I must admit that being surrounded by palm trees & white sand beaches doesn’t really make me realize it’s Christmas 🙂 But it is definitely celebrated around here! I participated to a “Posada de Navidad” at my friend Charlie‘s Bar, located upstairs of Chalupa’s hostel in Tulum. Everyone brought some handmade food and Charlie did for us a huge punch. Dj, music, party, great friends, great vibe and lots of fun!
I haven’t been writing that much in the past days, meaning some new adventures to share with you soon! Coming soon… I wanted to wish you all Merry Christmas, send you lot of love, and wish you to enjoy these times with your families and with the people you love 🙂
Romina from Quérétaro, Mexico

I want to introduce you my great friend Romina Severino. She’s from Quérétaro, a town north of Mexico City. We became great friends during my last trip to Tulum earlier this year. She’s 25 years old and lives in the “Mayan Zone” since a year. Before, she used to work in a bank from Monday to Friday, until she received various “signs” that she should pack up and go travel. And when I say travel, I mean living “on the road” like many Mexicans do. Get out from a corrupted system in which they don’t believe anymore, and offer their time and energy to what’s worth it, very often art related activities. Romina now dedicates her time to art and sustainable projects she meets along the way. Couple weeks ago, she was volunteering in a community ; I’ll talk about it soon. She does painting & art projects that transmit her cosmic vision of the universe we live in.

Right now, she creates reading bookmarks, also working as Oracle. The Oracle is there to give answers. Her bookmark shows on one side her drawing or painting and the other side has the Oracle message (like the image below). In this one, the message says: Observe (in Spanish). All of her reading bookmarks are handmade from recycled cardboard (not transformed, but re-used) and are all unique pieces. You can buy her bookmarks on our Travel-Smart boutique.
