By far, one of, if not, my absolute favorite place to stay at in Tulum.
The perfect combination of everything you need for an amazing and unique beach getaway.
Waking up with what seems like the view of a painting of the perfect beach has absolutely no comparison. The rooms are big, the bed is comfortable and perfectly situated to watch the beach instead of a TV.
Service and staff was very helpful and kind. I love the fact that you can borrow bikes to discover the surroundings as it is by far the best and easiest way to drift around while in Tulum.
Pool area is beautiful, relaxing and is never crowded so you can really be comfortable and at peace.
The bath tub and bath products in our room where the perfect ending to our beach afternoons.
If you follow me on Snapchat: DriftingNomad - I am sure you saw amazing moments captured while at The Beach.

Rustic, colorful, beach front location, you could hear the ocean while sleeping, conveniently located in the middle of everything, with a nice pool across the street.
Zamas Hotel is a great stay option while in Tulum. I had a wonderful experience, the staff is very friendly, the room views are the best way to wake up every morning and the ocean sounds at night help with a great night sleep. The rooms are little cabañas with a nice big bed, and a comfortable bathroom. Each cabañas also has their own little terrace where you can sit literally on the sand and watch the sunset or rise.

The peace and good energy you feel while at Casa Violeta is indescribable.
This place is the clear example of simpleness filled with value and small meaningful details.
The restaurant though a bit overpriced, has some of the most beautiful views and is the perfect spot to have lunch, margaritas, breakfast or even sit down to relax while answering morning emails.

It is truly a magical place to stay and the perfect getaway for your mind, body and soul.

Siempre lo digo y siempre es un tema del que inevitablemente termino hablando.
Es increíble como puedes llegarte a sentir en casa en mas de un lugar y a la vez en ninguno.
Supongo y llego a la conclusión de que se trata de haberme acostumbrado a viajar y mudarme y no tener un sitio constante ni un hogar permanente desde los 9 años.

Al fin y al cabo, la sensación de estar en casa puede ser descrita y se puede sentir de mil formas.
A veces depende de quien te rodeas, de quien te recibe, de a donde llegues, de que busques a tu llegada, de quien te acompaña, de que tan familiar se te hace, de cuan cómodo te encuentras, entre un sin fin de ejemplos.

Me es difícil explicar lo que siento al llegar a Lima, la ciudad donde nací y donde viví hasta el 1998 antes de enrumbarme en la mudanza y aventura interminable de mi vida.

Es impresionante como aprendi a manejar (conducir) en esta ciudad a los 18 años, sin embargo nunca maneje (conduje) y aun así, si me das un coche, se llegar a donde me digas, probablemente me pierda, pero lo mas loco todavia, es que se volver a encontrar el camino.
Será memoria visual, será instinto, será una conexión inexplicable, como las que también podemos desarrollar o encontrar en las personas. 
(Irónico o coincidencia? Justo al escribir la palabra conexión empezó a sonar la canción Conexión de Fonseca en mi Spotify.)
- Las cosas tan absurdas, a veces son los detalles que mas significan y mas tomamos en cuenta. -

Detalles también como el hecho de que, aun así no habiendo vivido en Lima desde hace tanto, poder tener la sensación de que tengo incluso a mas gente a quien llamar, con quien reírme, con quien me siento cómoda, en familia (incluso a los que deje de ver a veces hasta 4 años o mas), que en Madrid, por ejemplo, donde llevo casi 13 años de mi vida (con alguna que otra interrupción).

Es contradictorio, por que a la vez de que me siento en casa, comoda, en familia y muy bienvenida, tambien siento de alguna forma alienigena, ya que hay muchas personas, que por mas cercanas que sean a mi, no comparten un estilo de vida ni una mentalidad parecida, y a veces, te resulta difícil acostumbrarte a ciertas costumbres y manias (con perdón y sin ánimo de ofender a nadie) en varios casos tan retrogradas o cerradas.

There is something incredibly touristy, typical and overseen about soho streets behind a perfectly striked pose or "unintentionally caught having the time of your life", or walking around looking incredibly interesting with a coffee to go in your hand, moments and poses.
But, who are we kidding? We can't deny how picturesque these soho streets are, specially when captured  by the one and only TUTES.
Some of my favorite spots in Soho are Cafe Select and Nomo Soho, which you can see snippets of in some of these images.

My friends always laugh at my undeniably and mostly cliche or corny sayings and quotes, the majority of which I randomly come up with or live by, which somehow got me thinking: Why do we rely on quotes such as "The sky is the limit", for example?
Can we really reach the sky? Clearly, it's a personification, how dumb of me to even consider genuinely asking that, right? but wait, why? Why is it silly to ask that? Can we really reach it? What's your sky? It might not be as high, as blue, cloudy or as far or close as mine. 
Is there really any kind of limit, do we really ever know how much, how far and what we're capable of doing?
Yes, I know they say "you won't know until you try", but, do we ever dare to try it all or at all?
In order to try, you have to know, and how do you know that you know, or at least know what you have to know, or all there is to know, all that you should know in order to achieve, to reach?
Did the word know start to look funny as you read it so many times?
That happens you know? Sometimes the more you see things, the less meaning, the less you understand them, the stranger they seem. 
-Yes, you start to get the idea of why I am made fun of, don't you? ;) -
The thing is, most times, we don't sincerely know who we are or what we want, therefore, how can we know anything else afterwards? 
I completely sound as if I just took some kind of drug, but in all honesty, who doesn't have these kind of thoughts every now and then? 
There is so much we are not aware of, so much we have not yet felt, discovered, seen, lived, touched and most of which we never will.
Or, who knows?

 I'm finally back in Madrid after spending 2 months in my birth country: Lima, Perú.

It's amazing how you can feel at home in more than one place. Madrid, like New York, for me, is my home away from home. 

But that's how it works, that's how life is, home is more a feeling than an actual place, and most of us who have traveled, or moved and lived in various places throughout life, will come to the realization that you will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart always will be elsewhere. 
That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.

13 años en esta ciudad y por mas mundo que viaje, por mas lugares que conozca, cada ve estoy mas convencida de que como Madrid no hay.

Aside from being beautiful, having an amazing and spacious room with great views (though a bit loud at night) and having some of the best services I have ever encountered, it is conveniently located in the mid center, close to places I tend to go to like Colle Bereto Ristorante & Lounge bar, great place to go for drinks and a fun night out, as well as all the shops where you want to be shopping at and a close walk of Caffe Giacosa, Florian, Illy shake cafe, Trattoria 13 Gobbi, Museo Salvatore Ferragamo, Cantinetta Antinori, Yellow Bar, Rivoire, Vivoli, Ristorante La Giostra, Enoteca Pinchiorri, among all fun and delicious places you can find all around small and charming Florence.

Thank you to the wonderful crew for every detail and such wonderful service.

Finally, I can share with you one of the most fun and interesting projects I have had in a while.

When it comes to people, food, places, anything in general really, what I most admire, appreciate and enjoy is originality and personality.
And that is exactly what I found at Soprarno Suites, where I stayed on my first night in Florence.
Every room had their own character and vibe, the decoration was carefully thought to be unique but still make you feel at home.
I loved how they had free breakfast and food at all times, as well as a snack and drink bar where they just left a little note that you could leave your own donation as you pleased.
Guests at eating area sit at communal tables in chairs recycled from an old school classroom.
That immediately made me feel in a safe and trustworthy environment.
Located in a 16th-century palazzo on one of the city's most elegant streets.
