About Me

Hitchhiking a boat through Atlantics, Who's up??
Planning to do (most likely this summer) boathiking trip through Atlantics
So to start probably in Lisboa and end up in Carribean (most preferably Mexico)
And I'm looking for brave, interesting and full of spirit companions for this marvelous advanture!!
Looking forward to hearing from u xx


Adventures that sometimes go to far, exploration of the world it is about me.

Passionate about myriad of things. About to start MA in Maya anthropology, reaserch. Photography is one of the things that I am totally addicted too, also I do drawing and painting, willing to study calligraphy and design. I am a crazy traveler, and dreaming of making a journey through islands with indigenous people. Just returned from my first amazing trip around the globe.
I also have my own brand of minimalistic functional clothing on the begging period.

Just want to be a know-it-all. Want to know about all kinds of things ancient history, quantum mechanics, neuroscience, philosophy, design, hog futures etc.
Because you never know when these ideas might come together to form a new idea. It may happen six minutes later, or six months, or six years. But have faith that it will happen and it will be something incredible.

"Because of their courage, their lack of fear, they are willing to make silly
mistakes. The truly creative person is one who can think crazy; such a person knows full well
that many of his great ideas will prove to be worthless. The creative person is flexible; he is able
to change as the situation changes, to break habits, to face indecision and changes in conditions
without undue stress. He is not threatened by the unexpected as rigid, inflexible people are."


You are the creator of your reality, you are the perciever and the life giver to what you believe is possible. You are God making all of this up in your own mind just as I am making a personal note in my own self created universe. We are one and nothing separates us no matter how hard you think we're not.
May seem exaggerated a bit heh, but this is what people love to read because it's inspiring, right? :))

Just enjoy the world around you and let things pass)
