NEW BLOG SERIES: South Of The Border with Taya Valkyrie

The last year has really seemed like a blur or a dream. So many things both good and bad have crossed my path. My determination, drive and passion for what I do was all tested. A year ago I would have never guessed that I would be now living in México, working for one of the biggest wrestling, pardon me, lucha libre companies in the world, training every week with legends and learning and working with people who I consider some of the best female talent in the world.

I’m currently writing this while sitting on the tour bus as we make our way to Guadalajara for a house show. We left at 6 am to make the 7 hour journey. There is Mexican folk music playing through the speakers. Everyone is either sleeping or listening to their iPods as the air-conditioning blasts and we drive past more and more rolling Mexican hills. There will be a quick food stop at a roadside stand and then straight to the venue. Its moments like this where I cant help but smile and really reflect back on what the last 7 months of my life have been.
