Hello, I’m Maria. Welcome to my blog!
In Between Lattes is a female-focused travel blog where I share my adventures around the world. With beautiful photography and practical information & tips, I aim to inspire my readers to travel more and discover new destinations.
My travel style is all about local experiences, cultural curiosity and finding unique things to do.
My passion for travel started at a young age. Born in Buenos Aires (Argentina), I went on my first overseas trip by myself at the age of 15. I did a homestay in Japan for one month living with local families. During that trip I fell in love with the Japanese people, nature, food… and from then on I knew I wanted to move and live there.
Fast forward to high-school graduation, I was incredibly lucky to be granted a scholarship that allowed me to go back to Japan on a 5-year undergrad program. Those years were the most challenging yet most exciting & formative for me. I became fluent in Japanese, met students from all over the world and started to explore Asia.
We both have a serious case of wanderlust and love to go on adventures as much as we can. Some of our most memorable experiences are sleeping in yurts in Mongolia, hiking the red sand dunes in Namibia and walking on glaciers in Patagonia.
2018: Our sabbatical year
After living in Hong Kong for 3 years, my husband and I quit our jobs and decided to travel full-time. We spent the first half of the year in California followed by a 5-month backpacking trip to South America. Some of the places we visited are Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Panama and Chile.
