About me

cristiWelcome to Stavanger and its region!

My passion for tourism and all that it entails started at a young age, partly due to my family´s keen interest on history and love for travelling. Both of my parents, being open to change and new experiences took me around the country and abroad, opened my mind to new cultures, options and experiences. In 2008 my french cousin traveled to Ecuador with her Norwegian colleague.. who would end up being my husband, some years later.

I have been living in the Stavanger region since Dic 2009 together with my husband.  I am keen on learning about other cultures, meeting new people from all walks of life, tasting different flavors, and all that comes with traveling,

My passion for the industry, as well as my professional experience (I have worked in the travel industry in Ecuador, promoting the country and its Galapagos Islands.), together with my studies in the fields of Marketing, Communications, Digital Marketing and Video/Photography bring me to the creation of this website, where I as a local, get to help visitors find information and inspiration for their visit.

I am currently in charge of Social Media and work with  Digital Marketing as well, for the beautiful Stavanger Region, located in the West Coast side of Norway. I suggest that you to take a look at my friend Paul´s blog Northernfjords,to learn more about this region located in the Norwegian fjords.
