About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I want to go and see every country in Europe!

ABOUT ME

Find me on bewelcome:
http://www.bewelcome.org/members/aldriga

Nonetheless it is difficult to write about myself.
I think that I am an introvert. I don't find it easy to talk about my feelings and experiences, but I like meeting new people. I love debating and listening to what the other person has to say.

When you meet me, you don't quite notice my introvert soul. I'm an easy-going, friendly, nice and helpful person. I love good laugh. I am curious of the world and other cultures.

When I have free time, I like taking photos and reading books. Sometimes I'm a cook, but this is not my strong point ;) Anyway, I'm working on it ;)

I love postcards. I like sending it and I like receiving it.

PHILOSOPHY

Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass... it's about learning how to dance in the rain :-)

I believe that all what we do has some sense. Nothing happens without a reason. I think that if you do good things, the good will come back to you.
I try to help other people, if I can.

"Borders? I have never seen one. But I have heard they exist in the minds of some people."
Thor Heyerdahl
