About Me

CURRENT MISSION

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

ABOUT ME

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.

PHILOSOPHY

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.
