Get to Know EatMyTrip of Barcelona, Spain
During my June 2016 trip to Barcelona, I had the pleasure of crossing paths with Genia, a Moscow native with a background in IT and construction project management. Like me, she not only got bit by the travel bug (which was unusual in her family), she decided her passion was no longer in corporate work, but in her palette! And with the inspirations from her travel, she decided to put her passion to the test and started baking confectionary delights. This was the birth of EatMyTrip.
Genia, after studying for a few years in Madrid, and mastering her third language, Spanish, fell in love with Barcelona and made the move a year ago. But before settling in, she decided it would be her greatest adventure to hitchhike from St. Petersburg, Russia to Barcelona, Spain, covering 17 cities in 20 days, meeting tons of interesting people, couch surfing and having the experience of a lifetime, which ultimately gave her the confidence and passion to set out exploring the things that interested her most. EatMyTrip combines the inspiration from her worldly travels and experiences into sweet delectable custom cakes and treats.
Having the opportunity to meet Genia and hear her story was not only super inspiring, but literally a sweet treat. If there were any leftovers from her custom orders, Genia was generous to share them with me. Her treats are well developed in flavor and she absolutely understands both texture and ingredient profiles to give you and your palette a delightful experience. I especially loved her carrot cake and red velvet.
A delectable shot of her carrot cake cupcake. Yum!
Not only is Genia a true talent, but she is a dream chaser, a solopreneur, an accomplisher, a woman of the world and now a soul sister.
The next time you make your way to Barcelona, support her EatMyTrip startup, and place an order of a one of a kind confection (at EatMyTrip on Facebook) of your own and better customize your local experience. Happy Eating!
Oh, and of course, let me know what you think!
