Solo travel experience

I spent 3 days in Vigo and absolutely loved it! The "old town" is lovely and being near the Ria is a plus. I spent a whole day in Islas Cíes and the hiking there always led to places with stunning views! The beaches were beautiful and the water was amazing! The sunset is late but incredible, recommend seeing it from the Parque de Castrelos!

About Me

Hi, I'm Lía! I'm a '96 baby, born and raised in Galicia, Spain. I'm an English teacher, but I'm also a student! I have an MA in Advanced English Studies and I'm currently pursuing a PhD in Feminist Studies. I love travelling and I've actually lived in the UK for half a year as part of my Erasmus exchange. I also love sports; I practised taekwondo for more than 15 years and achieved international recognition in my field, I also enjoy watching tennis matches and MotoGP. I'm into crossfit, diving, and hiking, but I also love doing nothing! I'm a vegetarian but not very picky and since I looove cooking I don't mind preparing a non-vegetarian dish for when my friends come over. I'm very energetic and I'm always down to whatever plans, some may even say I'm fun to be with! I try to be flexible but the truth is I get very nervous when things don't go as planned or when something is out of my control, but I'm working on that and, since I'm a solo-traveller newbie I'm more open-minded about going with the flow. I'm really looking forward to meeting new people and making new friends!
