About me



Welcome to my blog.

My name is Maria and I am a Mediterranean girl living in Oxford with my boyfriend. After years in academia, I am now working for a small tech start-up and I’m trying to find a balance between work, hobbies, and little adventures.

I am hopelessly in love with the English countryside and because I’m a keen photographer you will often find me lying flat on the ground taking pictures of the morning dew on blades of grass, or something similar. Cooking, baking, and eating are high up on the list of my favourite things too. I love to learn new things and I’m always starting new projects or setting new resolutions. Oh, and I’m forever running out of space on my bookshelves.

This is my online journal; it is a place to put down my thoughts, resolutions, stories, pictures, and all my little adventures.


I love meeting and connecting with fellow adventurers.

Come and say hello on Instagram or Twitter, or add me on Bloglovin’.


Walks in the countryside. Yoga. Woolly blankets. Dainty porcelain tea cups and saucers. Bertie Wooster. Bookshops and libraries. Giving voices and personalities to animals. Exploring new places. The light at golden hour. Naps. Going to the theatre. Terry’s chocolate orange. Gilmore girls. Cashmere jumpers. The sea air. Treacle tarts. Crunchy leaves in autumn. The dawn chorus. Movie nights. Adventures.
