Administration and back-office Manager
Languages: Spanish, English and Portuguese.
Hi, I'm Alvaro! I was born and grew up in León, in the northwest of Spain.
After I graduated, I decided to travel to continue my training, which led me to spend several years living in England, Ireland, and Italy. Knowing different countries each with its culture, made me become a more tolerant person, discovering new points of view.
In my free time I love hiking, and Picos de Europa is the best place to do so. I am so lucky that it is only a couple of hours driving from León where I live and work at the head offices of Spain is More. Another of my favorite sports in the wintertime is skiing.
The north of Spain has mild and sunny summers and I love going to the Asturian and Galician coast where I enjoy incredible landscapes and beaches along with extraordinary gastronomy.
I encourage you to discover one of the most unknown and beautiful areas of Spain. I can guarantee you that this will not be just another trip, it will be unforgettable!
