Food, Culture, Latin America

Matt Simkin

A love for food and travel, but riddled with apathy from a mundane routine; surely there's a way to be happier and combine the things you love in life?


The dull working life inspired this enticing travelogue on how food and culture influence the varied regions across Latin America with a backpacker's voice. Travelling from Mexico down to Patagonia in Argentina, Simkin takes a profound look into the Latino culture with enthusiasm and pragmatism. Stepping away from the gringo trail and exploring everything from islands to jungles, mountains, beaches, favelas and cities.


Simkin recounts his adventures with vivid detail and honesty through the journey, whilst reflecting on his life and girl back home, affectionately called the GBH.

The story of how food reflects the culture across the continent makes this a relatable and unique story for food, culture and travel lovers alike.
