These are the simple and humble beginnings of my blog. When these words were written in late April 2015, there were no pages nor other posts, so this was the first post ever. Since then we have covered destinations in Europe, South America and North America. Unlatinoverde is now active on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Affimity, The Bing Bing and LinkedIn.
It all began here…
After years of working overseas, I have finally decided to document my travels. This summer I will go to South America and I also get to visit New York City (my first time stateside). I have decided to dedicate my blog to my travels in Latin America and the countries of Southern Europe, so I will also include features on Spain and Portugal with a focus on providing some useful travel information for would be travellers to each destination, as well as giving a flavor of each place to those less fortunate souls who can only travel in their dreams.
Who am I and why ‘Un Latino Verde’?
I am a fairly ordinary professional who sometimes wonders where the joy in life has gone, but although I may now be 24 the wrong way round, I still love to learn new languages and discover new places. Towards the end of my four year tour of duty in Milan, a truly awful city with a great cathedral, an Italian colleague told me she doubted I would spend much time in my current assignment (in the far north). She said I was ‘too much of a Latino at heart for better or for worse’. Thanks, P! You will truly never be forgotten.
Given that I am originally from the Emerald Isle, I guess that makes me ‘un Latino verde’.
And this only a selection! What can the next year bring at Unlatinoverde.com?
