About Vero

Hey! I´m Vero from a beautiful country called Venezuela.

In my day a day I am a petrophysicist (what?!)….it means that I work for an oil company and I get to evaluate wells to determine if there is oil, gas or/and water and how much. Sounds really cool and it is. Plus sometimes I have to go to the wells to supervise the operations, and of course these wells most of the time are in unique places where you never imagine planning a trip to.

Besides my career, in my spare time all I think about is which country should I visit next, my biggest passion, and after traveling to a few places I first decided to start my own blog so I don´t have to write down the details a thousand times every time one of my friends want to go to a place I´ve been. After a pair of posts, I fell in love with my project, so I started adding inspirational posts, details about the city I live in (Madrid), restaurants I go, etc. A fact: I have no idea how the blog´s name came to my mind, I guess it was a moment of inspiration in my italian class. 

For you to know more or less how my trips usually are, flashpackerfamily.com found the right concept to define myself: I´m a FLASHPACKER.

“Flashpacker: One who travels with the intrepid ethos of a backpacker but having added comfort, style and technology whilst still maintaining a sense of exploration and adventure”

And beside my biggest passion, I would say I love to plan parties (weddings, baby showers, birthdays), redecorate my house every now and then, cook for friends, have a nice glass of wine (or 2..), especially spanish wine, my yoga classes, italian and indian culture, bury my feet in the cold sand, history books, to cut my hair, rainy days at home, sunny days with my family in Puerto La Cruz, to buy gifts and to look for flats in internet even when I´m not planning on moving.

The only 2 things I´m 100% sure I don´t like are cats and milk. Well, the cats thing goes to a different level: it´s a phobia, but that´s another story.

Welcome to my project! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

    Inesperadamente apareció, sin imaginarlo, sin pensarlo, allí estaba, esperándome… este GENIAL BLOG!!!.
    Mi familia y amigos bien saben que no soy nada aficionada a las redes sociales y aunque parezca extraño en pleno siglo XXI nada tecnológica, pero tropecé con estas fabulosas líneas, a las que ya en menos de 15 minutos casi he devorado por completo!. Atrapada con cada relato, con cada historia, con cada fotografía tan hermosa y hasta con comentarios muy familiares como “La pizza de la Abuela” , jejeje (cómo olvidar esa fabulosa salsa de tomate con la que tanto cuidado Esther vaciaba en sus botellas y teníamos la dicha de saborear cuando le regalaba algunas a mi mamá, uuummm que divinidad!). Verito, a pesar de la distancia y el tiempo transcurrido siempre es reconfortante saber cosas lindas de la familia. Me contenta mucho poder leer estas líneas y sentir la cercanía de tomarme un café contigo en el sofá de tu casa, escuchando tus historias y regalándome tips de viajes. Gracias por compartir. Se te quiere mucho primita!!! un fuerte abrazo, siempre te recuerdo con una gran sonrisa!. ;D. K-ro Bello
