A beginning.

Where to start? Beginnings have never been my strong point, well neither the ends, but I guess I’ll start telling you a bit about myself.

I’m María, a 17 year old born and raised in Spain. During my (short) life I’ve been always living in Spain, a few years in the capital (Madrid), other few in the countryside and now back to the center. I was the kind of kid who was always asking questions about the world that adults seemed to never have time to answer and so that I had to resolve them by myself. I’ve always liked learning new languages, descovering different cultures and trying to live this world basing my actions in the principle of sharing all that I have to offer without expecting anything back and always willing to try new things and meet new people.

I found in travelling what completes my life, since I was a little kid I knew it, I already felt that something was missing and that at home I couldn’t find it. It was july 2008 when I did my first trip abroad, I went to Paris with my parents and, oh, I still get emotional when I think about it. You could see a special shine in my eyes, I was truly happy and then it was when I knew what was missing. This passion for travelling you can only fullfill by IMG_5669hitting the road, enjoying a traditional drink with some locals, discovering hiden and marvelous spots when you thought you were lost…

Since then I’ve travelled all that my age and studies have lend me and so far I can’t complain! In this blog I’d like to share with you my stories related to my trips, hacks about low budget travelling, reviews about places, food, etc and basically all that crosses my mind and I think it can be of your interest. I’m also planning to dedicate a section to write about my au pair experience, which I’m starting in September in Paris.

Hope to write soon and hope you’ll enjoy it!
