I was born and raised in the Galapagos Islands where I worked as a Naturalist Guide for more than 6 years, loving nature and the harmony of living in Islands where people get to know each other more closely and breathe home atmosphere in the sympathy that is with others. I have lived in the Canary Islands for 3 years and I feel very identified with these Islands for their type of volcanic formation, their colonial history express themselves in the art of their architecture, the lifestyle of their humble enterprising inhabitants and the respect for nature makes I feel like one more local inhabitant.
