Based in London, Teresa's goal is to inspire people to explore the world, particularly lesser-known destinations and unique aspects of popular spots, through deeper and more meaningful travel experiences.

Early life and education

Teresa grew up in a quaint fishing town in Northern Spain[2], which came alive during the summer months with visitors from all over the world. This early exposure to diverse cultures sparked her interest in travel. At the age of 19, she embarked on her first significant trip across Europe, and she has been hooked on travel ever since. She later moved to London to further explore the world, one adventure at a time.

For her education, Teresa attended the Universidad de Vigo in Spain, where she studied Translation and Interpreting (English-Spanish) from 1996 to 1998. She later obtained a Professional Certificate in Marketing from the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM), enhancing her skills in both digital and offline marketing.

Before diving into full-time travel blogging, Teresa built a successful career in marketing and social media management. With over 12 years of experience in digital and offline marketing, she has defined and implemented high-impact marketing strategies, significantly increasing brand presence for various companies. Her expertise spans across social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterest, where she has managed to grow engaged subscriber bases impressively.

Brogan Abroad

In April 2017, Teresa launched Brogan Abroad, a blog dedicated to promoting responsible travel through cultural immersion, adventure, and sustainable practices. The blog features travel stories, tips, and photography from Teresa's global adventures. Brogan Abroad stands out for its focus on less frequented destinations and lesser-known aspects of popular locations, encouraging readers to engage in deeper travel and more meaningful local experiences.

Collaborations and Campaigns

Teresa has collaborated with numerous tourism boards and travel brands, including So Sri Lanka, Tourism Ireland, Visit England, Visit Santa Cruz, Visit Trentino, and many more. Her work with these brands often involves press trips, product and service reviews, and destination promotion through blog articles and social media posts.

Awards and achievements

Teresa's work has not gone unnoticed. She has received several prestigious awards, including:

  • Influencer Rising Star of the Year 2020 - TravMedia Awards

She has also participated in award-winning campaigns such as Experience Bucharest & Experience Romania Campaigns, which won the Most Effective Promotion of Romania Abroad by Romania Insider Awards in 2019, and the #DyscoverSyros Campaign, which won the Gold Destination Branding by Greece Tourism Awards in 2018.

Personal life

Teresa is passionate about travel and adventure, always seeking new experiences that push her out of her comfort zone. She enjoys learning about the history and culture of the places she visits, meeting locals, and tasting local cuisines. Her love for adventure is evident in her travel stories, which often highlight unique and lesser-known destinations.

The name Brogan holds a special place in Teresa's heart. It is derived from Breogán, a legendary Celtic King who founded the Kingdom of Galicia, reflecting Teresa's roots. She named her blog after her beloved English Springer Spaniel, Brogan, as a way to honor both her pet and her heritage.
