Who Am I?

My name is Izaskun, I’m 26 years old and I am a Spanish girl who is currently living in Manchester. I grew up in the north coast of Spain, in a city called San Sebastian. I love living in this fantastic city that is Manchester, there’s always something going on (music, theatre, festivals…) but watching the sea every day is something  that I definitely miss in here.

Photography and travelling are two of my biggest passions. Although I am not a professional photographer, and decided to take my career in a different direction (business), I really enjoy sharing my vision of the world through the lens of a camera.

These past years I have been travelling around Europe. So far I’ve been in Italy, France, Portugal, Spain, Germany, Austria and England. There are still many countries I want to visit in this continent, but last year I decided that I should take a step further and explore cultures that are more different than mine.

Asia came first to my mind, and sounded perfect for some months of disconnection from my life here. I spent half of the trip in India, it’s a country that captured me and didn’t leave me indifferent. After that I travelled to the Maldives, just for a few days, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Thailand.

I haven’t started planning my next trip yet, but I can tell you I would love to explore Canada and South America soon.

Many of my friends ask me what motivates me to travel. Well there’s a major reason, I want to be able to collect and tell as many stories as I can during my life. I believe that nothing opens your mind more than being in a different place and understand how people live there to have your own opinion about it.
