Welcome to Building Wings and Dreams!

I believe the world is like a painting we create, the people we meet and the experiences we make are the vibrant colors that bring life.

This is not just another travel blog, although at times I do share travel advice and useful information about a destination. However, it is a place where I share my reflections and allow my heart to speak of how travel has changed me from the inside out. After all, no matter how far we have gone on a journey, if we are not changed somehow, the journey was all in vain.

Join me in my adventure to seek the beauty all around, from the simple daily delights, to the awestruck moments that leave us breathless. I hope that in turn you may be inspired to create your own masterpiece.



Creo que el mundo es como una pintura que creamos, la gente que conocemos y las experiencias que hacemos son los colores vibrantes que dan vida.

Esto no es sólo otro blog de viajes, aunque a veces comparto consejos e información útil sobre un destino. Sin embargo, es un lugar donde comparto mis reflexiones y permito que mi corazón hable de cómo los viajes me han cambiado de adentro hacia afuera. Después de todo, no importa cuán lejos hemos ido en un viaje, si no somos cambiados de alguna manera, el viaje fue todo en vano.

Únete a mí en mi aventura de buscar la belleza en todo, desde los placeres cotidianos, a los momentos asombrosos que nos dejan sin aliento. Espero que a su vez, es posible que se inspire a crear su propia obra maestra.
