As you may know, if you follow me on instagram I have been onto a lot of traveling and “nomading” around the globe with (part of) my tribe…
Recently, we decided to set foot in sunny Florida for the polo season. After coming to Wellington for over 18 years on and off we have decided to stop renting and have our own place.
OUR LITTLE STORY ON WELLINGTON
Nacho my husband, is a professional polo player since he’s 17 years old. We met 20 years ago and since Hilario (19) my eldest son turned 2 here in Wellington in 2002 we have been coming over every winter until 2010. At that time we had decided to stay in the souther hemisphere, during the months of Jan Feb Mar. So we didn’t come back for the whole winter polo season until now. We returned to Florida, this 2019 to play The World Polo League.
ON POLO NOMADS
I get a lot of questions regarding my way of living. How we travel, how we educate our children.
Nacho and I put family put first in everything we do. We believe that children should live with their parents ALWAYS. Therefore I turn to homeschooling (part of the year). Somehow I manage to find balance in this (don’t ask me how) but my children are happy. And that is all I care about. although its not “always color pink” -homeschooling is the hardest thing ever! They have to live with their tutor, and we all have to adapt to live together in some sort of tribe.. we share table time and free times with someone that is not technically part of the family but needs to be (in a temporary basis).
Because, as I said, I will part-homeschool -my kids will return to their class with their friends and teachers every year when we are back home from our trips. I work on their schedules and try to keep them on a routine, and keep up to date with contents of their school program at home. In some cases if its possible I would even put them in local schools for them to learn languages and make new friends.
But I would never tear apart the family. We opt tp keep them with us. I wouldn’t imagine myself without my husband or them without their father. And thats that.
TIME FOR A NEW ADVENTURE
I will try to keep up with my blogging and keep you updated in the interior design of this apartment. First you must know I moved in so fast That I literally didn’t even have beds. Nacho and I learnt from a previous had heard about some m
Here are a few snaps from the first steps and finds for our new place. Casper Mattresses, West Elm tableware were my first destinations.
MAKING OUR NEW HOME
I think this will deserve a series of consecutive posts. I’ll try my best to keep everything updated and I’ll link items as much as I can.
So stay tuned and ask me questions. I take suggestions too…92

Que lindo… nosotros venimos mucho a Miami porque tengo a mis papis que viven en Aventura…
Antes Esteban en Boca y íbamos muy amenudo a palm beach para ver el polo, una de mis mejores amigas acá en Francia es Jennifer Macaire la mujer de Stéphane Macaire, que ya se a quedado en casa nuestra cuando estuvo allá jugando… con mi marido siempre vamos al St. Regis y cada ves nos cruzamos aver si uno de estos días nos cruzamos porque tenemos varios amigos en común… Stephane siempre nos dice si lo cursan a Nacho pregúntale quien le hizo la cicatriz en la nariz ??… y Daniel Lombardi siempre nos dice que son un amor… suerte con nueva casita y que hermosa familia tienen…
Muy lindo! Bendiciones para la familia unida más allá de los viajes 🙂
You can always discover local artisan pieces and art on Etsy ! You can enter your zip code,even contact the seller on their page and through a private message. That is a much more personal way to find pieces instead of going to big box or department stores where everything is made in factories,is not one of kind or unique.
You can also try to find vintage markets or stores near you, even flea markets or garage sales. You always interact with new and local people through both options which is really nice.
Lastly you can go to a crafts or art supplies store and have projects that you create with your children. Rugs,weaving,art work, even blowing up photographs and painting on top of them a la Francois-Marie Bainier. Have fun with it ! I do crocheting which is easier than knitting to learn and everyone of all ages can learn it quickly. You can make scarves, dish towels/cloths, sweaters,socks,even bags out of yarn and other textiles.
Enjoy and welcome to your new casita 🙂
Delfina! How do you style your hair? It looks so effortless but yet so stylish and fresh! Do you use any special products or styling tips?
I usually have little time to style but my hair loves looks best after the second day I washed it. Usually I don’t do shampoo everyday. And I try to limit the heat. I use a few products. It ranges from Kerastase shampoo, to coconut oil… and sometimes leave in conditioner. I’ll write a post soon about this.
Thanks for writing. ♥️
Aww, I’m so happy for you, sweet Delfi.
Muchas bendiciones en tu nueva aventura. Eres bienvenida acá en Austin, TX por si se animan a venir.
(Ojo a Parachute home, has visto las s´ábanas que tienen? Yo creo que me voy comprar unas de lino)
Saludos y abrazos
