I was born and raised in Barcelona (Spain). I started travelling at a young age, and I acquired the passion for traveling from my parents.
My passion for traveling made me make the decision to get my bachelor`s degree in tourism and hotel management and to become a travel agent expert in Spain.
While growing up and living in different countries, I felt the need to travel, to learn about cultures and ways different of living, to live unique experiences, to talk to locals and discover the world through their eyes, so I decided to make my dream come true and I left for a one-year journey traveling around the world.
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"I am specialized in custom-made trips, including off the beaten track destinations within Spain & Portugal, including the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands.
I am specialized in family trips, cultural tours, local history trips, honeymoon, luxury trips, private tours with local guides, unique experiences such as flamenco classes or gourmet experiences."
How did you get involved in travel?
"I have been involved in travel my whole life, that’s how I decided to get my degree in Tourism.
After traveling to different countries and having the opportunity to live in the USA and Ireland while I was developing my career, I decided to go back to Spain to undertake a new and exciting challenge in the world of receptive Tourism.
I joined my experience, my passion for my work and travel, and my willingness to show others the best of my country and I became a Travel Expert for Spain, turning my passion into my profession.
I work alongside the traveler as a local friend who has local knowledge about Spain. I connect the traveler with a high-quality service and exclusivity, as well as unique experiences by customizing unforgettable trips. "
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"I have to say that on my one-year trip every minute was unique, from when I was climbing Machu Picchu or diving at the great Coral reef but what was truly unforgettable was one afternoon that I was on Easter Island, and I went climbing the highest mountain in the island. As soon as I reached the top, I was surrounded by volcanoes, inexplicable statues, and the sea, it was nature at its purest.
On that same afternoon I got invited to a local celebration in the back yard of a family from the village. Since I came in trough their door, I felt welcome even though they didn´t know me.
I experienced the true kindness, honesty, happiness, life, and that was the moment when I realized I was learning to see the world from the best way it can been seen, though the eyes of the locals."

Patricia, our KimKim Travel Specialist, was perfection personified · Spain - Dec 16 - Dec 24, 2021
I cannot provide enough superlatives that capture how beautifully my family's trip to Spain, (and side trip to France) unfolded. While very well traveled, and having used Trip Advisor incessantly for many years, I had been unaware of kimkim.com, until I saw it mentioned in a travel magazine. Learning of its origins and creators, and then reading excellent reviews about it, I thought I would give it a try. I generally arrange all of my family's travel, but have been feeling overwhelmed in... read more

A huge thank you to Patricia and her team. We were a family of 4, trying to put together a trip to multiple locations in Spain, in the middle of the pandemic. Without Patricia this would not have been possible. She made it all super easy, set us up in amazing hotels, arranged personal bespoke experiences and brought her considerable knowledge of the area to bear. In addition she stayed in constant communication throughout the trip, checking in and fine tuning the agenda along the way. We... read more

Every aspect of the trip that Patricia planned for us was flawless. The guides and drivers, particularly Miguel, Daniel, and Inma were so knowledgeable and concerned with our experience and comfort. I have travelled extensively in Europe, individually, as the leader of student groups, and as part of a travel group, and I can say unequivocally that this was the best trip I have taken. I loved meeting Patricia and I especially thank her for her terrific work.

Adventures in Spain 2019 · Spain - Sep 21 - Oct 8, 2019
My husband and I can’t say enough great things about our experience with Your Trip to Spain and working with our local expert Patricia to plan our recent adventure. From start to finish and at every turn along the way, Patricia was the ultimate professional always making herself available throughout our travels and helping create one of the most memorable and enjoyable trips we’ve ever experienced. We are grateful for her expertise and knowledge. And, of course, we look forward to working with her again.
We felt well taken care of. · Spain - Oct 3 - Oct 18, 2019
The trip was quite satisfying. Dinner with view of alhambra was most memorable.
Mr. Joseba Villarino gave an out-standing Basque guided drive.
Miranda gave a great evening tour in Seville. She took us to an excellent Flamenco show.
To me the troupe is the best I have seen and I wish I have got their name and see if they have some
commercial video. The Granada Victoria is great; the hotel in Seville in only two & half star.
All in all, Patricia, you have done a good job and we felt well taken care of.
