Who we are
Coming from different professional backgrounds, our love for traveling and curiosity for adventures bound us together. With Mañana, our common quest is to change the world through traveling. We are both currently living in the United States, one on each coast. Follow us on our blog here on the site.
Malin started her journey in the movie industry, working behind the scenes as a script supervisor. Seeking more realness in life, she then went back to school, to study criminology at the University of Stockholm. The path leading up to Mañana twisted and turned through many years of writing, everything from articles to cookbooks and a movie script, traveling far and near, and visiting hundreds of hotels. Living in California since 2008, Malin is a longtime equestrian and mother of three daughters.
In her backpack, Lisa has more than a decade years experience with international development, mostly from the United Nations. Her work (and love) has taken her to live in Guatemala, Zimbabwe, New York, Belgium and South Africa and she would score pretty high on a "how many countries have you visited" quiz. Originally from Sweden, she now lives in New York City with three boys and husband Carl.
