About Me

CURRENT MISSION

LEARN CHINESE

ABOUT ME

My name is Andrea Líf and i am 25 years old. I love snowboarding, traveling, music and just taking it easy with friends and family.

In 2010 I travelled through South America for 5 months with my friend. After Graduating High School I felt I had to see it all and a little over a month after graduation I was outa there! I truly got the travel bug now and never want to get rid of it.

After spending one year at home I decided that Asia would be my next destination. In September 2011 I started travelling in China and after 2 months of travelling I just knew I needed to learn chinese. All in all I spent about a year and a half in China, mostly in Hainan province. Then in January 2013 I had had enough of studying for a while so I bought a new backpack and flew from China to Singapore to start a new adventure. This time around I traveled in South East Asia for a bit over 3 months before I returned home to Iceland.

My goal in life is to to see the world, do new things and meet new people and I feel like I have had a good start of making that goal:D
