AMonika.com is where I share my passion, journey and mission.
A trip to Tirana, Albania at the age of twenty two turned into a five year journey as a volunteer in orphanages. Needless to say, my time overseas forever changed me and how I view the world. After traveling to seventeen countries and living on three continents, I’m ready to share my experience and integrate everything that’s important to me.
I am a lover of travel, cultures, food, playing outside and the overall savoring of life.
I believe life is meant to be enjoyed. Whether it’s watching the sun rise over the hill or eating pineapple crepes with my husband or taking a road trip to Montenegro or feeling the evening breeze blow through my hair, each day holds the promise of joy, if we only pause long enough to notice.
Derek and I are currently living in colorful Colorado.
I recently opened Cortez Yoga and Meditation. In between classes I write about food, share inspirational stories, confess my personal growth, and post pictures of our latest adventures.
This is my destiny.~Monique Alvarez
