Touristear is the travel blog that you have to consult for your couples getaways and your road trips.
Find out who’s behind Touristear travel blog
We are Veronica Cussi and Fernando Chacón, a “marplatense” and a “Madrileño” wanting to know the world.
We’re both addicted to travel.
Vero has lived in 5 countries and Fer in 3.
We prefer to know the destinations well, to enrich ourselves culturally, than to be counting countries. We are repeating destinations!
For us to accumulate memories is much more important than accumulating things.
If you are looking for a place to nurture your desire to travel and learn how to do it, you are in the right place.
How can we help you?
We’re here to tell you that your life doesn’t have to be standard. You don’t have to live behind something you don’t like, or enslave yourself in that full-time job that absorbs you.
We’re not going to tell you, quit your job and go out and travel the world, we know that’s not for everyone. But we’re pretty sure you at least want to escape your daily routine. Make weekend getaways or go on vacation three or four weeks a year.
Why? Travelling brings you joy, you live new adventures and you get lasting memories, of those that are not easily forgotten.
We want to show you that you can travel anywhere in the world on a normal budget. That you can move around a country where you don’t know anyone and have life-changing experiences.
We’ll help you find different ways to get out of your routine and connect with what’s really important to you.
We will help you travel more and create memorable memories.
Visit our Get Started Here page, which will provide you with the inspiration and information you need so you can travel more and more often.
A little more about who we are
Hey there! I am Vero, a marplatense (from Mar del Plata, Argentina) who in 2002 went with a friend to Spain, only for a couple of months, these became 9. I was in Granada, Malaga and Madrid and return to Argentina.
After a month in Argentina, I bought a one-way ticket to Madrid. It’s been 16 years since I left my home in Mar del Plata.
In these years in Spain, I studied a lot of things including administration and finance and the Degree in Business and Tourism Activities.
I worked in banking, I had my own business and in 2014 Touristear travel blog was born.
Working in banking might be the job dreamed up by an immigrant, but it was the one that made me the most unhappy. This made me look for new alternatives. That’s how our first business was born, a pub that lasted five years. We learned a lot of things, including that I wanted to be my own boss. Although I didn’t imagine it would be with a travel blog.
In 2013 we closed the pub, I went to London 6 months, returned to Spain and started working in an office from 9 to 17. In 2015 due to the crisis in Spain I was out of work and this changed my life. With the compensation I studied Digital Marketing and embarked on the adventure of dedicating myself to travel blogging in a professional way.
Since 2014 I share our tips for traveling as a couple, by car, weekend getaways and road trips dreamed of.
I’ve traveled most of Spain, mostly by car. I am fortunate to have visited all the provinces, although not all of their capitals, I am also missing Ceuta and Melilla. I have lived 6 months in London, 9 months in Toledo and at the end of 2018 we have embarked on a new adventure and have come to live in Nantes, France. For how long? we don’t know.
I love to travel, meet new places and their customs. Also, I’m passionate about photography, I think I’m learning and improving my photos. (Or so I hope!!!)
I also like rock and American TV series in original version. I always like to be doing or learning something.
I have started writing this blog, to share my passion for travel and to be able to inspire others to do the same.
My dream is to be able to know the world, there are too many places and too little time! So, I’ll share my experiences of the places I visit.
Hello! I am Fer, I have lived most of my life in Madrid and I have been fortunate to have been able to travel quite a lot. I had to travel for work and that’s where I took pleasure to know other countries and meet other cultures.
I travel, but not only to be able to say that I’ve been in such or that place or to enjoy that feeling of freedom and (almost) fear that it gives you when you know you’re going too far. But because traveling makes you a little more different (and for me better) every time.
I am passionate about photography and that is what I try to contribute in this blog.
About Touristear Travel blog
We started Touristing travel blog in 2014 as a way to share everything we knew about travel. We had been traveling for many years, had lived in other countries and thought it was a good way to share our travels, both with friends and family, and with the world.
We never thought our travel blog would grow that big. Things that happen when you follow your passion and do it with love.
We help more than 50000 people every month who visit our blog. We inspire over 500,000 people in love with travel on Pinterest. We talk to you through our social networks and by email. Many of you listen to us through our “Touristear” podcast (In Spanish). We love to be in touch!
At Touristear travel blog we share our travels and adventures. We love to know other cultures and another way of seeing the world. In the blog we share practical tips for you to travel too. And so you can see that anyone can do it.
Travelling is a personal experience and doesn’t really matter your travel style. You’ve heard of whether you’re “a traveler or a tourist”… Super boring… You travel if it makes you happy!!!
Living adventures means different things to different people. So if your idea of adventure is to travel around Europe, camp on an erupting volcano or sit aboard a luxurious Amazon cruise. Go get it!
Our goal is to promote responsible travel experiences. Conserving resources and minimizing our impact on environments around the world ensure that the places we travel to and the reasons we travel to those destinations remain intact for future visits from ourselves and future generations.
In Touristear travel blog you will find useful information for your trips.
We really like to visit towns and villages, and mix the “asphalt” with nature, weekend getaways or day trips.
We love to do miles by car, I think road trips are our favorites. We make our own travel guides, with its history, sights, itineraries and everything we consider important and interesting for the trip. Always leaving time to improvise!
We will tell you our real opinion of the places we visit, sleep or eat. If something we didn’t like or don’t think it’s useful, practical or if we regret doing it, we’ll tell you too.
Unlike other websites, we only talk about companies that we have used. All the companies we mention and recommend are because we use them (or have used them) on our trips and have liked them.
We want you to travel more and better. Make it easy for you to plan your trip and know the different options out there.
We hope you find inspiration for your travels!
