Ella's language degree took her to Paris and Spain for a year which turned out to be just the beginning of her travels. After working for a top literary agency, Ella decided to pick up sticks and leave London behind for the warmer climes of Latin America, a part of the world she'd been fascinated with since university, and spent the best part of a year trying to tick as many countries off her must-go list as possible.
Not content with staying in one place, last year, she went to Mexico for a few months and ended up staying for seven. Mexico won her heart in more ways than one, she loves its history, culture and above all its food. Most recently, Ella was more than thrilled to be given the opportunity to travel again with Audley to Cuba and Mexico, two countries she knows and loves so well.
I'll never forget when…
A special memory I have is of spending a day surfing on one of my favourite beaches in Mexico and coming out of the sea to relax on the sand. While we were sitting there and the sun was going down, we saw a fawn taking an evening stroll along the beach. It turned out to belong to a local who had brought the fawn to play on the sand - a bizarre but beautiful sight.
