Hi, my name is Laura and I’m from Colombia. I’m 28 years old and currently living in Medellin. I started this blog in 2013 as a diary for my memories and travels while I was living in India for an entire year, but it has evolved into a place where I can share many of my interests and other trips I’ve made since then. The idea of this site, is to show a bit of my process on trying to search for happiness in the small things in life while exploring new destinations.
Like I said before, this blog has evolved in time. When I first started writing I was more focused on telling the story of leaving my life behind in Medellin and go after a new adventure. But after my return to Colombia, I focused more on writing the things I learned from India. In that moment, the name of the blog was “प्रसन्नता – prasannata” which is a concept, and one of my favorite words. It means happiness, cheerfulness, joy, gladness, joviality. Since it is very difficult to type correctly and hard to remember, I decided to use a new name, that could work both in English and Spanish. And that’s how “Feliz Escape” was born! I’m pretty sure you probably know what it means, but just in case “feliz” is “happy” in Spanish. So now, with a simple name that explains pretty much all I want to share here, and is not limited to a single destination, this new adventure begins.
