About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Explorar o mundo.

ABOUT ME

My parents are originally from Costa Rica but I have been raised in the US since I was 3 years old. I went back when i was 18 seeing as I had no clue what it meant to be a costarican. I used to be wicked shy but that completely changed when I started high school. Very optimistic and happy person but when I have to get stuff done, I get it done. I am very random so don't be surprised if you get a random comment or question here and there.

I just finished acquiring my bachelors in International Relations, and decided to move to Brazil, not knowing a word of portuguese and because I am that random. I am a very open minded individual. I have only one rule in life: "no regrets". I lived in São Paulo for around 5 months and traveled to 8 out of the 12 countries in the continent. South America has made me realize a lot of things about myself and my future. I completely love the region and cannot wait to backpack in other regions as well as complete some of the countries that I left off in this trip.

PHILOSOPHY

Pura vida: literally means Pura = pure and vida = life, but "Pure life" in Spanish would be Vida pura instead, so the real meaning is closer to plenty of life, full of life, going great, and/or just living life to its fullest.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

- Hosted in San Jose, Costa Rica

Interests

I am a big fan of just hanging out in the living room and watching movies or just talking/debating. I am a big political junkie, so I enjoy talking about politics. oh and I enjoy running, and hiking. Its my way of clearing out my mind and relaxing. One of my favorite things to do in a new city is walk around and check out the architecture as well as things that make each city different or better than the last one.

Also, each country is as special as its cities and I love getting the chance to compare and contrast its progress in social development, foreign policy, economics and architectural structures etc.
