Traveling like a crazy person and falling in love with each and every corner of the world I go to as I try to grasp what makes each of those places unique
I am sociable, outgoing, respectful curious and open-minded. I enjoy sharing random travel anecdotes, genuine conversations about "things of life" (I'm making myself feel old when I say that), or just come up with jokes about random topics and share a good laughters with CSers.
Getting along with all sorts of people and enjoying the little things of life are crucial to me, such as bonding with locals or fellow travellers. I travel a lot by myself but only to better encounter myself surrounded with interesting people with whom I can connect.
