So you made it over to the About Me page. Now… what do you want to know about me? There are so many different directions I can take this in. But first, I feel the need to take a moment and give full disclosure: I am by no means a professional, I just really like being outdoors. That includes hiking, rock scrambling, biking, swimming, traveling etc. And I’m lucky enough to have a husband, family and great friends who love it just as much.
I follow a few blogs and use their advice/info to go exploring. I guess you could say I do more than my fair share of research, and even then I can get lost at times! Hike The Hudson is one of my favorites! It’s inspired my blog and I hope to one day have posts you too can feel free to use as guides. Or at the very least use as a reference to inspire your very own adventures.
My name changed to Mrs. Torres as I got married in Olivella, Spain in September 2018. Tony and I have been traveling and hiking together since 2013. We have a long list of places we want to go to and can’t wait to see them all.
I’m one of five siblings, the eldest to be exact. I have two sets of parents, two sisters, and two brothers. It’s a long novela, just know there’s a lot of us and we come as a package lol. And talking about that family package, we’re all Salvadoran. My husband and I both have parents born and raised in El Salvador. And when we have our kids, I plan on taking them to explore the country as much as my parents did with me!
By the way, I feel like a dying breed! I still print pictures and use them to scrapbook. I still use paper planners and miss days where I couldn’t be reached at all times. I know that’s why I like being outdoors. Sometimes you lose service and even lose track of time. And that is when I enjoy it the most, when I’m outside and forget everything else. My job, household duties, bills and worries don’t exist. It’s an amazing feeling and an even better stress reliever.
It’s always weird to think about what’s important to share about yourself. Like, what else do you want to know? It’s similar to when you’re being interviewed for a new job and you’re asked to share some personal aspect. No one knows you better than you, but you know too much and have to sort through it all. I always resort to sharing about my husband and family. They are important to me and you’ll even see them on some hikes with me.
I’m a pharmaceutical representative Monday-Friday. I have had sales-based jobs since high school and I’m good at what I do. I enjoy it even more because it provides me with a means to save for travel. I could never have imagined I’d end up in this field since I went to college to be a teacher (NY state certified btw). But I have way more freedom here to do what I love and I wouldn’t change it for anything. Except, if someone came along and decided to pay me to travel year round. Any takers? Anyone?
Now that we’ve gotten that out-of-the-way, I hope you’ve landed here because you are looking to spend more time outside. In any case, I welcome you to my humble blog. I am on a mission to share my time outside with you and I hope that via the comments you share some of your adventures with me too. After all, I hope this blog will be a two way street. I’m looking forward to reading your comments about your adventures so I can gain some inspiration too! Or at the very least to know someone is reading this lol.
