Story
Tagline
The Adventures of elATLboy. Lover of travel, the ATL, road trips, city skylines, COFFEE & shorelines. I'm also a web developer. It's #ElCafeDe2013 time!
Introduction
The Adventures of the elATLboy - http://www.elatlboy.com

I’m Aaron, elATLboy or “The Hispanic Atlanta Boy”. I playfully talk about my time in Atlanta, Detroit, New Zealand and beyond.

Mornings, evenings, weekends, vacation days, doing the day job remotely, I find the time to enjoy what I am truly passionate about, traveling.  I am a web developer and social media marketer by day.

Road trips, city skylines, non-chain coffee shops, lighthouses and shorelines are featured. Geography, the weather, travel signs, geekiness, local food  and COFFEE all have their place as well when “out on the open road”!

It's #ElCafeDe2013 time!
