WHERE ARE YOU FROM / WHERE ARE YOU CURRENTLY BASED?
I am from the north of Spain, Asturias, but I live in the Canary Islands since 8 years.
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING AND WHAT DO YOU ENJOY DOING IN YOUR FREE TIME?
I work with my couple, Ivan, in a photography and video studio “IVAN MONAGAS STUDIO”.
I'm lucky to be able to work on something I like and it's like enjoying my time one hundred percent. In my free time I am also with the cameras, on the beach, traveling, meeting people and enjoying! When you are lucky enough to work on something you like, it is as if you are constantly enjoying your time!
HOW WAS THE CONCEPT @WANDERINGSOULS MADE?
Wandering Souls starts two years ago, when Manon, (a girl that was working on marketing in Billabong and we just met her in person several weeks ago!) contacted me by instagram.
At first I thought it was a joke because it barely reached 4000 followers on instagram!
It occurred to my boy that we could go on a trip and create content for brands, and that's how it was!
We have worked for brands such as Billabong, Maui and Sons, Abysse Official, Ducati, Honda, Urban Outfitters and we just arrived from the Sahara to live an amazing experience at KAM KAM DUNES.
WHAT PASSIONS DO YOU HAVE / WHAT SPARKS YOU?
My passion is traveling, meeting people and new cultures.
Feeling that sensation when you wake up in places you've never been, see those sunsets and magical sunrise are amazing!
WHAT/WHO INSPIRES/MOTIVATES YOU?
IWhat motivates me is that when I wake up and I can say that I'm doing what I wanted at all times.
Live life as I want, enjoy and learn. I try not to inspire myself in any person concretely. I think that each person has to take our personality and let us take what we like.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE ADVENTURE(S) SO FAR?
Without question, our last trip to the Sahara desert in KAM KAM DUNES. The best nights of stars and the best sunrises and sunsets we have seen in our lives, meet and see how nomadic families live. this has been one of the best experiences of our lifes..
WHAT ACHIEVEMENT(S) OF YOURS ARE YOU MOST PROUD OF?
I am proud to work and do what I really like and with the person that I really love, my boy.
WHAT PIECE OF ADVICE WOULD YOU SHARE WITH OTHER GIRLS?
Nowadays, with social networks we spend a lot of time looking at the lifes of others and what we do not realize is that our life is passed. Therefore, my advice is that try to fight for what they really want, enjoy, travel, know, and learn that nothing stops them.
Each person is able to get where they really want, it only takes one thing: Attitude!
WHAT’S YOUR ULTIMATE GOAL / DREAM IN LIFE?
The truth is that I do not have a final goal in life, but what I know is that I want to be happy, enjoy, travel and live.
