Los Angeles

A city that has been on my bucket list for a long, long time since I was living in Venezuela and finally visited a few years ago. My first Los Angeles time was at the Oh Joy studio, where I took a tour of her studio and participated in one of her amazing blogger courses.

The magic of Colombia, Cartagena captured my heart with its colourful, vibrant, colonial architecture and culture that reminded me of my hometown, Maracaibo. In my travel guide you’ll find the best spots where you can stay, eat, shop and discover as a solo or family adventure.

Beach view in Punta Cana

Punta Cana

A family destination where the only things I have noted in my agenda are sun, sand, pool and relax. We looooove Punta Cana to unplug from our busy day-to-day especially staying in an all-inclusive resort, where you don’t need to worry about anything, just wearing your bathing suit and sunscreen.

A city I need to visit at least once a year that has a part of my heart. Many miami adventures have been shared on my Instagram account and on my website, showing you all the vibrant spots, artsy places, best hotels and where to savour the best latin cuisine, of course.

Jungle view in Martinique


An unforgettable experience, what a joy to visit Martinique! Only 5 hours away from Montreal,  you can expect a paradisiac french island in the heart of the Caribbean, where pastries are french, the plantains are creole and the Martiniquais are pure soul.
