Originally from Argentina, I moved to Scotland 20 years ago and have worked in the service industry, health sector and teaching Spanish. Scotland is my adopted country and I feel Scottish at heart.  I love Edinburgh, the city that I live in with my family.  I have a passion for Scotland, the land of whisky, golf and literary greats, its varied landscape and captivating contrast, fascinating legends and history, castles, abbeys and cathedrals…..Come, and let me share it with you… You will not be disappointed.
