My name is Elena. By day, I have a marketing career and by night – a midlife crisis.
I’ve long been a vagabond at heart, beauty-seeking collector of secret sounds, passionate digustator of international food and fine cheeses, and otherwise enthusiast of all things hedonist. Since I got bitten by the travel bug over a decade ago and became addicted to getting my travel fix, I have had the privilege to visit over 30 countries. I enjoy visiting a remote village in a neighboring state as much as a full-on adventure half way across the world. I love photography and capturing the essence of every place I go. But…
Truth be told, becoming a mom had taken priority over getting lost in the mansions of Newport or the Costa Rican cloud forest. But god, I miss it. I fantasize about all the places we will soon go together as a family. I dream of figuring out this writing thing, downshifting the daily grind of a corporate marketer to a bigger world in which my husband and I live out our restlessness for incomparable existence, somewhere where our kids roam free and a beach chiringuito on the side.
I also developed a strange desire to put down my thoughts on paper, whether someone reads my words or not, so I’ve started to write about the things that interest me, which are currently parenting and travel. So this blog engagement is a bit of an experiment, a place where I both hide and share.
