Meet Elena from Tarragona, Spain.
The one word that best describes Elena's life today is "Adventure."
If Elena could change one thing in the world, she would "Help people to be more authentic and more real." The way she would go about this is to go to college to become a psychologist and help people to find their identity, which she plans on doing.
One year from today, Elena would like to be flying.
If Elena's life were a movie, it would be about her adventures traveling the world meeting authentic and real people while looking for places to feed her passion for an adrenaline rush. The title of Elena's movie would be called "Living Life To The Fullest Every Day Every Moment."
We met Elena today through one of my favorite, fun cousins, Gina. Elena is an exchange student from Spain and has stayed with Cousin Gina and family over the course of a few years. Knowing that I spent an amazing month in Spain last summer, Gina thought it would be great to meet a native from the country I fell in love with! Muchos Gracias Cousin Gina for introducing us to Elena.
Elena lives in the port city of Tarragona, which is located in the north-east of Spain on the Mediterranean Sea and is part of the Catalonia region. I have never heard of Tarragona until meeting Elena today, and after reading about this ancient city, I cannot wait to visit her hometown next time we are in Spain.
I learned that Elena is an adrenaline junkie and loves jumping off cliffs and waterfalls. When she told me she likes flying, I thought she was talking about flying in airplanes or bungee jumping or zip lining or sky diving. Nope. What she meant was, base jumping and actually flying with a Squirrel Suit. Wow!
I also learned that Elena would like to pack up a trailer and explore different parts of the world. She definitely has the adventurous spirit and such a great outlook on life that it's contagious. I can only imagine the influence she must have on her friends by the way she is living her life to the fullest every day and every moment.
Gracias Elena por permitirnos compartir su historia. Fue genial conocerte y esperamos verte en Tarragona!
