About me

Welcome to my space under the cyber sun.

I am Stefania van Lieshout, a serial expat, mother of two boys, child of two cultures.

On this award winning site I write about my passion; discovering new destinations through all my senses. With my writing I would like to take you to new places and different cultures: nature, the great outdoors, cities, food, culture, family travel destinations: trying to make this a better world, one blog at a time

I live in Malaga, the south of Spain from where I travel the world when budget and time allow me to do so. A blogger, entrepreneur, the face of this blog, economist, psychologist, traveler, photographer and also talented in making frog faces.
