Welcome to Moss and Rock!

I’m so happy that you are here! Now get ready, take a seat and let me introduce myself.

My name is Nerea, the creator, editor and photographer of Moss and Rock. Here you will find a variety of posts: from recipes to sustainability tips and travel experiences.

Sustainable living

I found myself leaning towards a more sustainable lifestyle almost 4 years ago, in January 2017, when I discovered the “Zero Waste” concept and when I realized some horrible truths about climate change. Trying to minimize my impact to the environment, I started reducing my plastic waste and buying second hand.

At the beginning it was a bit complicated, but then I started to develop some strategies that made my life easier. At that moment is when I thought that it would be great to share those ideas with others so that all of us could make a bigger change together.

By around the same time, I was having some skin issues, so I also tried to change my diet. I started eating healthier and I tried different natural remedies for my skin and hair, which I share with you here.

Recipe Inspiration

When I began eating healthier I discovered a whole new world of foods and I started trying new things, cooking and experimenting. I developed a passion for baking and in particular, for traditional bread baking. Since then I have been learning different techniques to make bread, from creating a sourdough starter to kneading. My dream is to work for some time in a small and traditional bakery, with wood oven, in a tiny village from the countryside. But for the meantime, I will keep experimenting and sharing with you the recipes that I make. I hope that you enjoy the process as much as I do!

Travel experiences

While I was studying at university, I made friends from all over the world, what gave me the opportunity to visit different places and discover their cultures. But you don’t need to travel far to live a great experience, you just need to enjoy the small trips and live simply. My other dream is to get a van, camperize it and live minimally. I look forward to sharing my adventures with you soon!

Why Moss and Rock?

These words just came to my mind when I was thinking about a name for the website, but they actually represent me quite a bit. I studied a BSc in Biology and I love nature and plants (that explains the “moss” part). I also love hiking and climbing, so rocks and mountains are essential for me! And why not, I also like rock music.

(By the way, this picture, which you can also find in the front page, was taken in the Austrian Alps at 2500 meters of altitude even before I started this blog, but it is the perfect visual representation of the name of the blog).
