Touted as one of the hottest beach destinations for the conscious traveler, people are now wondering: where is the next Tulum? Originally on the map as an eco-friendly haven of spirituality and sustainability, this one-time Mexican fishing village quickly went from under-the-radar to “secret’s out”, courtesy of a never ending list of fashion blogs and travel sites. The Mexican beach town may have suffered from its popularity, but is it really time to skip it altogether?
We first met artist Maryam Ego Aguirre last summer and knew immediately she was the kind of woman who embodied the FAUBOURG spirit: creative, confident, and conscious. The only child of an Iranian mother and an Iraqi father, Maryam’s life and art have been shaped by her desire to see the world. Today she travels the globe as a photographer in search of the landscapes that inspire her, often photographing animals like lions and elephants in the wild (no big deal).
