Hola!! my name is Ella Vasquez. Welcome to Lapeira
I am a 26-year-old hailing from a tiny city in Spain called Comillas in Cantabria. Comillas is located in Northern Spain and incidentally, was the capital of Spain for a day. Yes, you read it right, for a day. This city with its beaches and warm people is the place I call home.
I’d love to talk about how I quit my job, packed my bags, and started travelling the world, but sadly that’s not true. I am one of those very few people who love their jobs. The reality is that I have a full-time job as a creative director, but there’s more to my life than just that. On my days off, I like to pack my bags and head on an adventure to discover new places and meet new people.
About my blog
I have travelled to a lot of places and throughout my journey, I have read hundreds of travel blogs but always felt frustrated cause I could never find the information I wanted. Believe me, it can be frustrating when you’re traveling solo. From the airfare purchase to planning your budget, a lot of things can go wrong. I’ve been travelling for nearly 5 years now and developed a ton of ideas and hacks to make the process a lot smoother. That I why I started the blog. The main intention of the blog is to create content for people who are anxious about travelling and looking for information that could help them.
What’s in a name?
Coming up with a name for a blog is no small feat. The name needed to represent everything I wanted to convey to the reader. I spent weeks trying to come up with a name and got the whole family involved with it. It felt like I was naming my kid and not my blog. But finally, after narrowing it down to 10, I decided to name it Lapeira. Lapeira is the city where my grandmother lives and where I spent the majority of my childhood in. The word peira also means to attempt or experience. I wanted all my content uploaded here to provide the readers with a new experience and this name was a perfect fit.
So what’s next?
I plan to post a good amount of original content on here. You can already find some on my blog(click here!) but I have more on the way. I would like to connect with you and discuss the contents you would like me to post.
