My name is Raffaella, or you can call me Ella, and I am a 22-year old girl from Austria, right now starting to settle down in the Netherlands to start my university education.
I like music, doing sports, being out and about in the nature and exploring new places. I recently discovered a new hobby for me: photography. It’s a lot of fun and I still try to get more into it. On HolaElla I am sharing some of my stories and adventures with my friends and family and everyone else who wants to read it.
I really like to write, that’s maybe why I started this blog. I like expressing myself with words. Already as a child I loved writing my diary, so I have basically most of my life written up neatly in a bunch of little locked books. Even though I am native in German I enjoy writing in English a lot more. I apologize to you for any grammar mistakes I might make along the way.
Hola Ella – “Hola” for the Spanish word of Hello. I chose this because I love Spain and I am actually half-spanish. (My dad is from Galicia!) And “Ella” because that’s my name. Well, a lot of people call me Raffaella or Raffi, but my boyfriend came up with this nickname because he already had a lot of male “Raffi/Raphi”-friends. I think it sounds funny, especially in combination with “Hola”. :-)
I hope you enjoy the read and find some interesting stuff on my page!
