About Me

This is Carla Beans, like cool beans. Only much cooler.

I’m a 23 year old Italian/Argentinean girl, currently based in Vietnam, sharing my passion for traveling, learning, laughing and eating.

I’ve lived in many countries throughout my years, including Argentina, Italy, The Netherlands, the UK and France (yes, I speak Spanish, Italian and French – more on Intro to Cooler Than Beans), and traveled to 5 continents and 26 countries so far. Yet, ironically, the more I travel, the more I feel like I know very little about this world. That’s how Albert Einstein felt when he said

“The more I learn, the more I realise how much I don’t know”.

The only difference is that we talk about two completely different things, but you get what I’m saying, right?

There’s too much to see in this world for me to plan on setting roots anytime soon!


Currently on my final year of an online Bachelor’s degree, I’m taking advantage of the opportunity I have to travel without having to worry about going to class. But don’t be fooled, the workload is heavy nonetheless!

Having begun to travel more often in the past couple of years, I’ve decided to share photos of the places I’ve been to as well as tips and all the useful info anybody would want to know before heading somewhere. But the photos are the main reason why I’ve decided to create this space for me to share it all. I love photography and I couldn’t imagine traveling without my camera!

The world is beautiful seen through the camera lens.

So I hope you enjoy this visit and don’t forget to subscribe to receive more inside info as to my whereabouts and travel tips.

In the meantime, I’m gonna sit here and plan my next trip while I engage in some serious cookie-munching.

  1. Its true that there’s so much to see on this planet that even 2 or 3 reincarnations are not enough…forget that completely exploring my own country in my life is impossible!! wish you happy exploring!

    1. Happy exploring to you too, Arv! We might not ever be able to see every corner of this place, but that doesn’t mean we should stop hoping to achieve that. So let’s keep wandering and try to explore as much as we can!
