¡Hola! Welcome to A Spanish Perspective
If you made it to this page, that means you are, somehow, interested in Spanish culture and I couldn’t be more delighted…
My name is Cristina Alias and the idea behind A Spanish Perspective is to share with the rest of the world the love that I have for my culture in a responsible and honest way. I am certainly not a patriotic Spanish who tries to claim that Spanish art, gastronomy or even wine are the best… otherwise I would not be happily living abroad -in London- and travelling as often as possible to discover exciting new cultures.
Nerveless, I do believe Spain is an outstanding culturally rich country but unfortunately, over the years I have noticed that Spain is often ONLY associated with sunny warm weather, beach and… well, paella! (oh, and also with Mexican hats, olé)
So why should you read A Spanish Perspective?
A Spanish Perspective will give you first-hand insights of Spain from a native point of view. For instance, I am a native Spanish speaker with a university degree and masters in Spanish History, Cultural affairs & language as well as deep personal and professional experience in Spain (and abroad).
But a part from what could qualify me as a legitimate writer & web editor, I have always been passionate about promoting and endorsing a diversity of cultural Spanish aspects. While working in France and the UK I have been lucky enough to get involved in some marketing projects : from business conferences to tourism promotions and everything in between!
Spain is a country of cultural & natural contrasts
Landscapes and weather can dramatically change from one region to another as well as gastronomy, traditions and business orientations. That is why I have always loved travelling through the country trying to experience to the fullest the best of each region. However, despite my countless road-trips I need some genuine contributors to uncover the whole picture. A Spanish Perspective occasionally works with qualified Spanish writers whose aim is to share their knowledge and passion for their region, habits, cuisine, fashion and so much more! Gracias to my passionate team.
