Meet Ayngelina — In her mid-thirties, Ayngelina took off, leaving behind the comfort of a lucrative career, a boyfriend, an apartment, and good friends. Her journey took her to Latin America, where she hoped to find inspiration and to nourish a growing appetite.
Her travels inspired her to create the popular blog “Bacon Is Magic.” Her adventure evolved into a new job and career as the site soon was recognized as one of the top culinary travel sites in North America.
Since Ayngelina published her first post in 2010, Bacon Is Magic, the site was named a Top 10 Food Travel Site on USA Today, featured in Grazia UK, named the Foodista by Glamour Paris in Huffington Post as a top travel blog to discover. Her writing is not only featured on Bacon Is Magic, but also in Huffington Post, USA Today, Glamour, and Eater.com.
