One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Living in Thailand for one year, going to a thai school, becoming a fairly normal citizen in an asian country.

Walking around Paris with a complete stranger hosting you for the next few days and still nurturing your soul by looking at the magnificent churches and all the other buildings!

Living in Finland, swimming in the lakes and doing extremely hot saunas that demand of you to use a sauna hat just to keep your ears from burning.

Living in Taiwan for a year, striving to do as the locals do but also retaining my inner core. This year has taught me quite a bit.

Working as a guide in Iceland for three different companies and seeing my own country through the eyes of a foreigner.

Andorra, Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Germany, Mozambique, Netherlands, Spain, Tanzania, United Kingdom, United States
