Noemi took her first long-haul flight at age six when her family moved from Spain to the US. Her love for airplane rides was solidified on that trip, and 30-something years later she challenges herself to visit a new place every year.
Noemi joined SmarterTravel in 2019 from Oyster.com, where she worked for five years leading the Photo Operations team. Along with assigning photographers and producing visual content, Noemi is a trained photographer. Her favorite thing to photograph is the everyday - capturing daily life and little moments around her neighborhood in Brooklyn.
Her work has appeared on Oyster.com, ABC News, and AOL. You can follow her on Instagram at @NoemidelaTorre.
Handy item I always pack: "An SD card reader for my phone. The lightning to SD card reader is awesome for downloading RAW files from my DSLR to my iPhone. If I don’t bring a laptop on vacation this lets me edit and post photos on the go.”
Ultimate bucket list experience: “Tokyo, Japan. My friends and I started @ramenclubnyc here in NYC and I’d love to go eat ramen in Japan someday.”
Travel Motto:: "Keep calm and book a flight."
Aisle, Window, or Middle Seat: "Window for naps!"
