About Me

      Who is Mimosas and Maps?

Hey Loves,

I’m Morena. 
A New York native, Special Education Teacher, Traveler and Major Foodie.  I started MimosasandMaps as a way to share my experiences of life and traveling with a 9-5 (or in my case an 8-3).  No. I  did not have to quit my job and travel the world, thankfully my job gives me the opportunity to travel.

I am an AfroLatina (Dominican and African American), I have associated with the term long before it became over popular.

Here at MimosasandMaps we’ll share stories of life either with words or pictures over a glass or pitcher of Mimosas. I Hope with this blog I can inspire you to travel and try new adventures,  “It’s okay to be a tourist”. I will not ask you to bungie jump from a helicopter with me (Great Job, Mr. Smith). I will ask, to tour the world with me as a tourist.

“It’s okay to be a tourist.”
