¡Bienvenido/a!

I started this blog over 5 years ago during my first international adventure when I moved to Barcelona Spain to work as an Au Pair and learn Spanish. It was a year of discovery, personal growth and adventure. Spain couldn’t keep me away and in 2013 I returned, this time Madrid, to continue my Spanish learning. 2016 was full of changes as my husband’s job brought us to the megatropolis of Mexico City where we currently reside. This blog is for everybody – friends, family, strangers and well, for myself. I don’t pretend to be an amazing writer, but it is a way for me to share my experiences and keep them forever written down. I write about what interests me, what amazes me – whether it be food, or music, or a beautiful church, or an experience, or just a regular day that I want to document. I titled my blog, “La Mariposa Vagabunda,” or “the wandering butterfly,” because the analogy of the life of a butterfly is exactly how I see myself – starting small, and discrete and changing, growing, and evolving into something much more vibrant and beautiful.

¡Saludos!
