About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To live life to the fullest and to learn all i can about sustainable living :)

ABOUT ME

My life so far has been a beautiful journey :) I am open minded, vegetarian, outgoing, friendly, caring, and loving person. I am a Nature and Art lover and an Eco-friendly enthusiast. I am in a quest to learn as much as I can about renewable energies, green construction, , eco-villages and intentional communities, as my goal in life is to take care of the environment as well as the people around me :D I have decided that being self-employed is the best as it gives me the freedom to travel and enjoy life; therefore I have 2 small businesses, a hostel (www.llerasparkhostal.com) and a photography company.

PHILOSOPHY

Learning how to travel light (without too much physical or mental baggage) is essential in our lives. We need nothing more than the open road and a constant state of wonder. The best pleasures in life are the simplest, but first, we must surrender to the unknown, lift our eyes to the horizon, and reconnect with nature. I don’t believe in dualism, I believe in the Oneness of Us All. Therefore, I am thankful to all the ¨good and bad¨ experiences that I have lived through because they have shaped me into the person I am today. I see life as a white canvas, and see myself as the artist of my own destiny. I also believe that thoughts manifest into your reality so I like to listen to positive affirmations, practice meditation, read inspiring books , and avoid being around negative energies.
