Lottie Hanwell is a behavioral analyst, writer, and travel-addict from London. She has a degree in Spanish and English Literature from Durham university, a tiny city of cobbled streets in the north-eastern corner of the UK. Her passion for Hispanic languages and culture has led her to Buenos Aires, where she spent time working with an NGO, and Barcelona, where she worked at a magazine covering events and cultural happenings across the city. Whilst in Argentina, she fell in love with how sharing is such a central part of the culture, and put this into practice herself over many a glass of Malbec or afternoon spent in the park sharing a Mate. After a few months, she even— somewhat begrudgingly — learned to love Reggaeton. She enjoyed her time in the Americas so much that, upon leaving, she vowed to herself that she would return to this side of the world. And so she has, twice (so far): spending time on the south-east coast of Brazil, and backpacking by herself through Mexico. Always guided by her stomach, both countries provided many culinary delights, with highlights including tlayudas in Oaxaca and fried fish in Paraty. In London, she currently works as a behavioral analyst and trend researcher, helping brands to understand people through in-depth cultural analysis. Her research looks into a wide range of topics and issues, from the impact of climate consciousness on travel, to the way in which social media is transforming our family lives. In her spare time, she runs, reads, and writes, occasionally hosts dinner parties, and spends many an hour on her commute to and from work planning her next escape from the bitter British winter. Amid Brexit chaos, she’s increasingly feeling the pull of warmer, sunnier climates, and moving back to Buenos Aires seems increasingly on the cards.
