Tourist to Local x Bitácora de Viajero

Meet Juliana and Martín

A bicultural couple with the goal to visit every state in the USA and Mexico.

ABOUT US

We’re Juliana and Martín! In 2014, Tourist to Local was created as a way to document Juliana’s study abroad adventures, and it continued to evolve as she found herself working on a cruise ship in 2016. That’s when she met Martín. We started documenting our time on the ships and eventually moved together to Martín’s country of Mexico, where Martín showed Juliana some amazing places she never heard of before, thanks to his insider knowledge.

Then we got married and moved to the US. We switched roles, and Juliana began showing Martín these amazing spots in the US. In the process of seeing each other’s country, we began to understand each other a lot more as well.

That’s when we came up with the goal to visit every state in the USA and Mexico. There’s an endless amount of places to discover in each country, and with us and your guides, you’ll discover the must-see spots, some amazing food, and even a little language lesson or two. We’ll see you on the road!
