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 30 years old. I was born on July 22nd, 1988.
Are you traveling alone?
I traveled alone the first few years, but I am currently traveling with Deron, my fiancé. (You can find our pictures at (@acroyogacouple)
Did you ever feel lonely traveling alone?
No… never! I do find it curious that although I’ve always been very independent, when I was younger I was not comfortable doing activities alone… Especially in places where there were people. I had this feeling within me that people would 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.
Gradually I changed.
One day I decided to put more effort into myself, and I started to learn to accept the person I was, and to be comfortable with myself to see 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.
So after that, I started traveling by myself. I never felt alone because there was always someone new to meet. It may have been locals or other travelers who wanted to share their time with me. No matter what, there was always something fun to do. I also learned to enjoy my “me time” alone.
After some years, I met Deron. Since then, I travel with him. Being alone is not something I enjoy as much anymore, because I really enjoy being with him on my travels. We now get to enjoy sharing life experiences together.
Who takes your pictures?
At the beginning my pics were taken by people I would meet while traveling, or I would take them by myself using the camera timer.
Currently, Deron is the one who takes all of my photos.
How tall are you?
From my pictures, people always assume that I am tall, but I’m not that tall. I’m 163cm (5’4″) but I have long limbs that makes me appear taller than I actually am.
Are you vegan?
I do not like to wear labels. The base of my diet is vegetarian, but occasionally I eat chicken or fish.
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 and soups.
I am allergic to gluten and lactose, so I try to avoid eating products containing these substances.
Eggs are also a part of my diet.
In my travels I love to try local foods. I always want to try everything, but if the meals have strong flavors or spices, 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 just 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 love water activities (swimming, snorkeling, diving, scuba diving, surf, SUP….
I also love outdoor activities in nature, like hiking.
Lately I’m also enjoying working out at gym.
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 rhythmic gymnastics coach for many years and 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 2016 but I do not teach most of the time because I’m always travelling.
