Looking to sail across the Atlantic Ocean
Hi! My name is Paula, I'm a thirty-two Argentinean girl living between Barcelona and a small town near Pirineos. I'm looking to start a sailing adventure and hoping this sailing experience will be the beginning of a new life style in the sea.
I came to Europe in 2011 and since then I had lived in different places such as Sicily, where I worked as a tourist guide in the Eolian Islands and where I suppose my love for the sea started. After that I lived in Milan, in Marrakech and Barcelona. I Love traveling so I'm constantly moving and planning my next stop.
For the last two years I've been living in Barcelona working in my own project, a Cultural and Gastronomic Association named Porta Roja (www.portaroja.com) where I was in charge of everything, that means many different things, from cooking to soundcheck for live music concerts, cleaning, doing the anual cultural agenda and dealing with the artists needs (theatre plays, concerts, painting expositions, performance, book presentations and more). Also cooking was one of the main tasks, I would cook every day a regular menu for the bar and also for large groups. I do also organize two music festivales once a year since 2015.
On the other hand, while living in Argentina I studied photography and Social Communication. Now I work as a freelance photographer and stop motion animator.
I have the feeling my time in Barcelona is over, and I'm looking to start a new adventure across the sea. I studied for taking the exam of Patron de Embarcaciones recreo, that means I can name things but if I have to be honest I have no idea of how to sail.
Looking forward to meet some good people that will teach me how to become a sailor and have fun for this next months.
