What's Up? I'm ALANIS





Thank you for checking out Alanis Colina! I am a 24-year-old, passionate photographer, and four years ago, I decided to embark on the blogging adventure. I discovered blogging as part of a college class requirement, and I immediately fell in love with writing. The blog’s mission is to encourage my readers to step out of their comfort zone by offering local guides, travel experiences, photography tips, and lifestyle improvements.

Graduated in 2020 with a Communications and Photography degree, unemployed, in the middle of a pandemic, I invested my time blogging/content creating. I wanted to design a space where I could combine photography and writing to: share and tell stories to spark an inspiration to others, to YOU! 

When I’m not behind the screen, you’ll find me drinking smoothies, shooting portraits, or discovering new local places to visit. I am a fond lover of Mexican food, an expert in Spanglish (mix Spanish and English in one sentence), and I love to have karaoke sessions in my car.

Most of my travel guides are from Puerto Rico since I am based there, but you can also find guides for New York and Atlanta. If you’re visiting Puerto Rico, check out my favorite spots of Old San Juan or head to the west with my ultimate guide to Aguadilla.

Are you ready to step out of your comfort zone? I’d love to see you join along in this thrilling and inspiring journey.
