Lottie Hanwell is a writer, behavioural analyst and lover of travel from London. She has a degree in Spanish and English Literature from Durham University, which you can find tucked away in the north-east of England. Her passion for Hispanic culture and languages has led her to Barcelona, where she worked at a magazine covering events and cultural happenings across the city, and Buenos Aires, where she spent time working with a non-governmental organisation. Whilst in Argentina, she fell in love with how important and central sharing is within the culture, and put this into practice herself over many a glass of Malbec or afternoon spent in the park sharing a Mate with friends. After several months, she even— somewhat begrudgingly — learned to love Reggaeton! In fact, she enjoyed her experience so much that, after leaving, she vowed to herself that she would return to the Americas again, one day. And so she has, twice (to date): spending time on the south-east coast of Brazil, and backpacking solo throughout Mexico. Forever motivated by her stomach, both countries provided many a culinary delight, whether that be tlayudas in Oaxaca or fried fish in Paraty. In London, she currently works as a behavioural 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 awareness on travel and holiday habits, to the way in which social media is transforming us and our family dynamics. In her spare time, she runs, reads and writes, sporadically hosts dinner parties, and spends lots of her commuting time productively by planning her next escape from the dark and cold British winter. Amid the ongoing Brexit chaos, she’s feeling the pull of warmer, sunnier environments, and moving back to Argentina seems increasingly likely.
