Getting Close to what??

On the surface, Getting Close to is a video travel blog about cool places and people.
But really? It’s about building deeper relationships with the sights, sounds and locations around us.
It’s for people who want something more out of life  — those of us looking for magic and adventure in our lives, whether abroad or at home. And it’s about finding ways to get closer to your goals and dreams!Dalia Lourenco Productivity Coach
