Nellie, from WildJunket, is one of the first bloggers that we hosted in Costa Brava. She produced great quality content from different angles. She was always looking for a story to tell, and something diferent from the rest of the team. She is very responsible and always committed to their passion and job. One of the most outstanding strengths is that she always thinks about the brand that she works for, so you end up with an excellent multimedia content, aligned with the values of your brand. She is a happy person,and working in a group she brings enthusiasm to the rest of the group.
— Jaume Marin, Marketing Director of Costa Brava Tourism

Nellie, thanks for being such a morale booster and a HUGE inspiration! Your post was a kick in the butt for me, to relook at the standards I am setting for my own life. You should really consider writing a book on your experience and get the word out to more people, seriously! I want to reserve a copy of that book please.
