About Me


Live as many happy moments as possible. Currently enjoying Costa Rica endless beauty.


I grew up in Madrid, where I studied to be a journalist, and spent the last decade missioning around. I have been a waitress at a posh bar in London Soho, trained my patience as a babysitter, worked at an Arts NGO in San Francisco, tried the academic field writing a thesis about chicano art and spent the last 3 years in Cape Town, working as the Marketing Manager of an online travel agency.

I met Ryan, my couple, at a backpackers there in South Africa, and after a year of hard work we decide to start the travelling adventure we have being living since March 2015.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Mmm... diving with great white sharks in South Africa, travelling to NYC solo and super low budget on the middle of the winter (more dangerous than the first thing), visiting the idílic Seychelles Island for work (trust me, it's harder than you imagine).... I wake up everyday thinking "Today I will do something amazing" so it is just a matter of knowing how to appreciate the small things in life.

Teach, Learn, Share

Everybody has great stories to tell, and there is nothing that I enjoy more than listening to them! I also enjoy teaching spanish or English, share laughs and if possible, share some yummy spanish recipes :)
