Hola! I’m Jamie, the resident mermaid behind Mermaids of Malaga! I’m a published poet, author, and blogger for Hellogiggles, Salty Running, and The Peace Mobile. I’m a long distance runner, Ohio State alum, and professional cat wrangler. My location is pretty elusive, but no matter where I am, I can be found running, exploring (often those occur at the same time), and sampling the local hops and vines.
My main goal with Mermaids is to bring you literary-based blogging. I’m tired of clickbait, listicles, and the other same-old, cliche posts about travel. I want this site to be a marriage between photojournalism and good, old-fashioned prose.
I’ve been in a love affair with Europe since I studied abroad in 2012. I couldn’t stay away. In 2016, I went back for more.
Countries visited: Finland, Sweden, Denmark, England, The Netherlands, France, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Andorra, Hungary, Italy, Switzerland
