Meet Lydia Jones

Lydia was born in Slovakia, but has spent much of her life exploring Europe and North Africa from her UK base, and the Far East from Hong Kong. She now lives in Mexico, where she has developed a deep understanding of the indigenous people and their ancient cosmology and mysteries. Her blog, Hammocks & Ruins, combines her Maya scholarship with passionate travel and all the fun things to do in southern Mexico. You can also find her on Instagram.
