Welcome to my blog! I’m Marta. I’m Spanish, mum to Inés (5 years old) and Théo (17 months old), and married to a French/Swiss guy, Philippe. I’ve lived in Switzerland for the last 17 years. Actually I’ve almost lived longer in beautiful Geneva than in my home village, in the middle of the Pyrenees. Scary…
This little corner of mine is about the three things I love the most after my family: writing, photography and sharing.
Writing has always been important in my life. When I was 12, I published an advert in the newspaper looking for pen friends. I’ve written hundreds of letters through the years and, I guess, thousands of e-mails and WhatsApp messages to my friends. I’m a translator and I teach Translation Studies, so I guess it’s all about writing and communicating.
Photography has undoubtedly become my biggest passion and the first real one I’ve had in my life. I wish I were into fitness or cooking but, no, I prefer to take my heavy camera everywhere and document our family adventures. I’ve always taken pictures, but I really fell in love with photography a few years ago when my Dad died. Photography became a haven, a place where I could find the beauty of life and express my feelings.
And, finally, sharing… People who know me well can tell how much I love sharing experiences and feelings… When I discovered Instagram, I couldn’t but like the network: a place where I could share my first two passions with others! Well, you won’t believe it but I now feel the need for more space than Instagram can offer me… That’s why I’ve started this blog. I want it to be a place to share bits and pieces of my passions, my life, my experiences as a mum and all the things that inspire me.
I hope you feel at home here and you join me on this journey!
