About Me


Travel the history and languages


I'm 29 years old. I've been traveling since I was 17. I've lived in Canada, England, Wales, Scotland and Germany. I love to read historical fiction novels, write in my journal and watch movies. I love to dance, in the past I've done Ballet, Hip Hop, Jazz, ballroom, hoopdance, aerial silks and pole fitness.


Life is what you make of it but everything happens for a reason.
Follow your bliss :)
