Hi 🙂 I’m Victoria.
I started this blog because I wanted to inspire people to be happy doing what they Love. I am in a constant search to discover what else is there to life. My biggest desire is to see the whole world, every place, culture and people on earth.
I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in the core of an Italian family. Since age 22 I moved and lived in four different countries, and counting… My goal in life is to help others to unveil their full potential, and that is why I am studying a political science master specialization in Humanitarian Aid. I am driven by my mission to make a change.
In 2014 while I was close to finish my studies and while I was getting promoted at work, a car hit me while riding my bike. I didn’t see that coming… I spent 6 months in recovery in New Orleans, with my family over 6 thousand kilometers away. Those hard times made me realize my own strength. I felt that if I could overcome that challenge life was offering me, other people could achieve whatever they set their mind into.
Once I was able to walk again I sold all my belongings, quit my job, and bought a one way ticket to London. I left my security behind, my regular paycheck, my 401K, the comfortable life I built brick by brick. I freed myself to finally pursue my biggest dream: Travel the world.
My blog has two sections:
Miles is where I share travel tips, itineraries, advices and more from my own experience as a solo traveler.
Smiles where I write motivational posts from a humble place of experience and self determination.
At the end life has one purpose only: To be happy. I want everybody to find what makes them the happiest and I want them to live that life. I love writing my blog, traveling and getting immerse in new cultures. Yoga is what keeps me centered and balanced. I hope you can get some inspiration from my experiences, so you can too: Find your passion.
Thank you for reading 🙂
