I am Laura Brito. I currently live in Miami Beach, Florida, which has been my home town for more than a decade. Though Miami is my home, the birthplace and niche of my identity lies within the decaying yet vibrant streets of Havana, Cuba, where I was born and raised.
I am a seeker traveling through life in search of my true purpose. I am on the quest to self empowerment and discovery. Through writing I have found a way to healing and reflection. So I have dedicated this page, first and foremost, to me and my journey, and also to all of you out there who are searching as well. I am happy to share with you, and to hopefully inspire you to seek your own camino (path).
My turning point happened after taking the road to Santiago de Compostela, more widely known as The St. James Way, or Camino de Santiago. The inspiration for the website came from the experience and the name to seek a camino (path) within as well.
I consider the Camino de Santiago, the trip of a lifetime, and the beginning of a journey. After much reflection, and a year’s time; tired of the life I was living and desirous of something greater, I decided to take a leap of faith, leave the comfort of the job I had in order to throw myself into the unknown. To learn to surrender and truly enjoy the journey. I have started on a voyage inward and a life of creativity. This is the way to myself, the way within.
