Cristina Grau was born and raised in Uruguay, a beautiful little country in South America. Three sides of the country border the water, the west side borders the Rio Uruguay, the south west borders the Rio de la Plata, the south east and the east border the Atlantic Ocean.
All along the littoral, there are beautiful U shape beaches, one behind the other, magnificent lagoons and coves. Throughout the country there are great eucalyptus forests, many hot springs and green rolling hills. Even that they have four seasons, the climate is just perfect, not too hot and not too cold.
Even though it sounds like paradise, since Cristina was a little girl, she wanted to leave and travel from one country to another one, visiting different places, learning different cultures, enjoying local foods, and dreaming of being a nomad. And since 2008 she has been living her dream.
Besides traveling, she also has many interests. She loves to write, to read, to paint, to decorate and to do carpentry. And of course, she loves to spend time and travel with her children and specially her granddaughter.
Now, once a back packer, always a back packer, so she still keeps on gallivanting and enjoying her life!
