looking to add some sparkle in my life by meeting new people
Born and raised in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.Just moved back from living in the Philippines for over three years!I enjoy learning more about life and the world through other people's experiences, while at the same time creating memorable moments with them. If there's anything I've learned in having moved across the world and in doing constant traveling, it's that material possessions don't matter. They are all replaceable and ultimately unnecessary. Trust me. I've lost my apartment keys in a club, lost my phone on a boat and my camera on the beach. I've gotten down and dirty crawling in mud, shrimping, doing intense hiking, spelunking and swimming with whale sharks...so don't let this small stature and pretty face misinform you of what I'm capable of ;p This dance machine can go on for hours on end...oh, and I forgot to mention.

If you need any advice about Montreal, the rest of Canada or the Philippines, feel free to msg me and I'll surely respond to all your inquiries. I know how useful traveling advice can be, so I'll for sure help you out ;) though I'm more knowledgeable regarding the Philippines than I am about Canada :p
