About venesueca

Have you always wondered if you should buy that product you saw on TV, visit a restaurant or city you’ve heard about, or hire a particular vendor to help you with a project? Maybe you want fresh ideas to inspire your daily life or to make the daily grind a bit easier. At venesueca.com, you’ll find the answers to many of those questions! I love to travel, see new places, try new things, and meet new people… along the way, I enjoy writing about my experiences so that others can benefit from my reviews. During my inaugural week, I will be focusing on local vendors that I’ve worked with extensively and who have a lot of talent, expertise, and value to offer their clients. In the following weeks I will be posting on travel, products, and more. Stay tuned!
