About Tigress Creek & Maria Truitt
Hi and welcome, I am Mar! Founder and editor of Tigress Creek. It’s lovely to meet you!
A little about me, I am a traveler and blogger. What else? I’ve been traveling for a while, but for now, I can call North Dakota my home-based.
I was born in Maracay and raised in Valencia, Venezuela. Then, I moved to Florida where I launched my career on sales and entrepreneurship. One of my responsibilities was to stop tourists and create the necessity to spend their money buying my products. I started Tigress creek as a weekend hobby, but after a few months, the site is growing and demanding more time from me.
Tigress Creek is about all the things I love the most, so basically it is about traveling. Even though I enjoy wasting tons of time finding the meaning of my dreams to know what my higher-self is telling me, I don’t write about it on my blog because of SEO purposes. Lol
I worked in sales for almost ten years, and I’ve been an entrepreneur my entire life.
Starting a blog is one of the most satisfying experiences and a learning adventure along the way. I am thrilled to share with you valuable travel tips, photos, videos. I hope you find useful information and start traveling with your significant other soon.

Why Tigress Creek Name?
Long-time ago, while I was still in college, I had the craziest idea to buy a farm. I was almost a normal city girl. Yes!, I said “almost.”
I grew up listening to my grandmother’s stories about mountains, coffee farms, tigers, and ghosts. I was always excited and curious about getting a farm in the mountains. However, I knew nothing about country life; it scared me to death wild animals and insects as well.
My dream came true when I bought a beautiful piece of land (10 acres) in the middle of nowhere. To get to the farm, we had to walk between high hills for about two hours basically because there were no paved roads for cars. I don’t even know how I dared to do something like that. Everybody has the right to be young, adventurous, and silly at least once in a lifetime.
Anyway, In the middle of two mountains and surrounded by a thick jungle, there was the most beautiful plot anyone could get. A few steps from the house, there was a creek of clear waters named The Tigress Creek.
I can’t tell you enough how concerned I was about the name of the creek. It was so beautiful though that after a while, it turned into a fun place to take fabulous baths before bed, catch shrimp, or have a blast with neighbors by sunset. It was an unforgettable life experience.
I harvested nothing because I was there only on weekends, and I didn’t have any idea about farming either. However, I met hardworking and generous people, who used to tell me fantastic stories by sunset, and until today, those stories are still treasured in my heart.
After graduating from college, I got a fantastic job and decided to sell the farm. On a dark rainy day right before selling it, and while we were walking on top of a mountain, we heard a weird noise. I turned my head down to the creek, and I saw jumping out of the bushes the most beautiful and majestic tigress. She climbed up to the mountain fast and disappeared inside the jungle.
For a long time, farmers kept a big secret for over 20 years, but it was revealed a few years ago. They found gold in the whole area. By law, resources and minerals belong to the state and that’s why farmers kept that secret for years. But there is nothing hidden between heaven and earth so, the government took over.
Today, the creek and farms don’t exist anymore. There is so much gold than the entire country has now the fourth most important gold deposit in the world. Literally, I was bathing in gold! There were more important things than gold, though; the people, nature, and the tigress that lived there for years. They are gone forever. Now, that magical place exists only in the memory of all those who had the privilege of living there.
