Something more about me
In this section you will find the answer to the questions that you send to me.
How old are you?
I am 28 years old. I was born on July 22, 1988.
Are you traveling alone?
Yes, I’m always traveling alone and I love it.
It is curious that although I’ve always been very independent, when I was younger I was not comfortable doing activities alone in places where there were people. I had this feeling within me that people might think I had no friends. I was a very insecure girl with low self-esteem. I used to worry about what people thought about me and this prevented me from living the life I wanted.
I used to enjoy my time alone in places where nobody was around. I always avoided being seen alone in public places (restaurants, bars, medical center, gym, etc.).
Gradually I changed.
One day I decided to put more effort in myself, I started to learn to accept the person I was, to be comfortable with myself and my potential.
I took a trip to Ethiopia, and it was life changing. Then I decided it was time to prove to myself that I was capable of so much more than being the quiet loner that I used to be.
Since then I always travel alone, but I never feel alone because there are always people, whether locals or other travelers who want to share their time with me.
Who take your pictures?
The truth is that the pictures are taken by many different people.
When I travel I ask people I meet if they can take a picture of me. These are usually images where I want to emphasize the landscape or environment where I am and the pictures are usually taken with my Iphone. People are usually friendly and helpful. In fact some people even start taking pictures from various angles and perspectives.
I have a professional camera that I use to take the images of gymnastic poses or yoga asanas.
If I can’t find anybody to take a picture of me, I use camera timer, but sometimes is very hard.
I don’t usually carry my camera with me when I go exploring, I prefer to walk light to enjoy the experience.
Sometimes when I meet someone with whom I establish a connection, we may go to the beach or to the mountains to take some pictures together.
It also often happens that when I do yoga alone on the beach some photographers ask me if they can take pictures of me while I practice and then they send them to me via email.
In addition, I do some professional photoshoots for some companies, but usually those pictures do not appear on my social media.
How tall are you?
From my pictures, people always assume that I am tall, while I’m not that tall. I’m 163cm (5’4″) but I have long limbs that makes me appear taller than I actually am.
Besides, I also try to find the better angles to look taller in my pictures… You can appreciate how tall I am in the videos.
Are you vegan?
No, I’m not vegan
What kind of food do you eat?
I’ve always enjoyed healthy food, although I have never followed a specific diet.
The base of my diet are fruits, vegetables and nuts. I like to eat fresh and undercooked products, I love salads, especially ones with tropical fruits.
I am allergic to gluten and lactose, so I try to avoid eating products containing these substances.
Eggs are also part of my diet as well as fish and seafood, but they are not something I have daily.
I do not like charcuterie and red meat, although I like to eat chicken or turkey.
In my travels I love to try local foods. I always want to try everything, but if the meals are very strong, I just try a small portion. I have a lazy stomach, so heavy, flavorful or processed meals do not feel good to my stomach.
What kind of yoga do you practice?
I like to practice any type of yoga, but my favorite is Vinyasa. When I practice alone I do not follow any pattern, I let my body guide me and I let the energy flow: I link asana after asana without interruptions, as if it was a dance.
Do you practice any other activity?
I do not follow any routine with other activities, but I love to swim, dive and walk or do any activity in nature.
I’m not a fan of gyms and I do not like to be in a closed space by myself exercising.
Is your hair natural?
I am blonde by birth but I have dyed it several times. For some time I did not want to be blonde, so I tried several colors. LOL
I haven’t been to a hairdresser in over two years, so I guess I’m going back to my natural color (dark blonde).
What is your weight?
I have no idea! I don’t believe in the numbers on a balance sheet. In my opinion “the perfect weight” is the one you achieve by leading a healthy life.
What have been your professions?
I have worked as a teacher at school in Barcelona for some time.
I have also been a rhythmic gymnastics coach for many years and a personal trainer.
During some time I worked in a resort as part of the entertainment staff.
Are you a yoga instructor?
I received my yoga teacher certification in January of 2106 but it was only recently that I felt ready to lead a class. At first it was something very personal and I was not prepared to share it with others, however, I recently started to teach, or I prefer to say I started to guide yoga classes and enjoy it as much or even more than practicing alone.
