About Me

Hi, I’m Cristina, your host, an IT geek that enjoys writing – yes, we exist. In a few words, I love traveling in a way that’s friendly with my budget and, at the same time, I’m afraid of everything related to “adventure”.

     How do these two things work together, you ask? Well, it takes effort, but my travel wish is bigger than all of my fears. What helps me is planning everything in detail, anxiety control methods and laughing when nothing works as I planned.

     Because it never works as planned.
