Originally born in Mexico, I was always curious about traveling, cultures and different languages. As soon as I could, I started to travel on my own at a very early age. I went to California, later on, I lived in France to learn French, and then Barcelona, and San Sebastian. My life took a big change the moment I discovered surf and I couldn't stop traveling for waves!
Long story short, after that, the typical life in an office didn’t have sense anymore. I started an amazing journey getting to know myself through a lot of experiences, new ventures, uncertainty and months spent in remote surf destinations. I deepened my yoga practice, fell in love with healthy food, and discovered how to live a mindful, conscious life.
I created the blog "From where you'd rather be" in 2013. A place to document my travels and inspire others to travel more.
Here you can find a few collections of the different travels I've done through the years.
