… my Unbirthday in Mexico


Hello my dear fellow travellers!!

Happy Unbirthday everyone!!!

How are you? Where are you right now?

Let me tell you the story of how a usual eating out ended in celebrating my Unbirthday!

We are in Saltillo, Mexico a few years back. I was just back to Mexico for an internship and I met again with a lovely Mexican family who kind of adopted my for my time there!
Sometimes we went out together to eat at our favourite restaurant: Las alitas (the little wings).

It was my last week here in Mexico, soon I would be headed back home to Austria and University would start only a day after. Puh this summer surely was amazing but went by too fast – as always right?

So we sat there and had ordered some delicious food and we started talking about birthdays and I mentioned that my birthday was only two weeks ahead, but I would be back home.

There was some mumbling and they called the waited and whispered something to him.

Then this happened:

They actually told the waiter that it was my birthday! 😀 In this restaurant they make a show out of it and someone dresses up like a chicken and dance around – they did not expect me to join him! It was my best celebrated Unbirthday yet! We had a lot of fun and I will always keep this in my heart!

Keep on travelling!

Grüß dich, I'm Viki!

At Chronic Wanderlust, I write about my two great passions: travelling and diving – and have been doing so since 2013.

I usually spend a solid majority of the year travelling to experience extraordinary underwater adventures, taking road trips through countries I don’t know (yet) or exploring my home country of Austria.

As a certified divemaster, passionate underwater & travel photographer, road trip enthusiast and individual traveller, I collect unique moments all over the world.

I don’t believe that severe cases of wanderlust – aka chronic wanderlust – can be cured, only treated. On this blog, I want to show you how this can best be realised.
