Elibel from @elibellaureano shares her experience of the Puerto Vallarta retreat in May 2018!

Why did you decide to join us on a retreat? What excited you most about the retreat?

Meeting new people with similar interest as me. Learning Lightroom as well.

What top 3 things did you learn while on the retreat?

How to use my camera better, how to approach brands and hotels and how to use Lightroom.

How did your life change after the retreat?

I feel like it freed another part of me that was scared to go after what I want to do.

Would you recommend the retreat to a friend or someone who is interested in joining us on a retreat?

Yes, of course

What was a highlight from your trip?

Meeting Sarah from @saltyluxe. I admire her so much and it was amazing to meet someone you look up to. Also just bonding with everyone else and being in an environment free of judgment.

How has your blog or Instagram grown since the retreat?

Not much, but I learned to keep working towards my goals and not let that bother me.

Did Pangea dreams set you up for success? What skills did you take away from the retreat?

Yes, it did!  I learned to take better photos and edit them better. I also learned to be more confident.

Tell us about the photoshoots and content that was created while on the retreat!

We took so many amazing photos! I’m still receiving some of them and I love them all. The photoshoots were all amazing and so much fun.

How did it feel to be surrounded by other like-minded women? How did that motivate you?

It was amazing. This was the main reason that I wanted to come on this retreat.

Did the retreat live up to your expectations? 

Yes, it did. I miss the girls so much. I literally cried when I got home that night.

Is there anything you want to say to girls considering joining a retreat?

“You need to go sign up like yesterdayyyyy hahahahahhaa!”
