One day I decided to leave my stable job, my family, my friends, my city and life in Brazil back and move to Germany. In about 4 months i sold everything from my apartment, move to my parents house (to spend the last 6 months with them), bought the ticktes and left. Why? I wanted an international experience for my career. I wanted to learn another language. But above all... I was tired of my routine and my stressfull job. I wanted also a big challenge again...I missed getting out of my comfort zone. It hasn't been easy to learn german or being away from the people I love, but finally I found my place here, I found peace. And I don't intend to leave this place so soon. :)
And about me ... I dont consider mysef as a tourist, but as a traveler. Of course I enjoy sightseeing and do normal tourist stuff, such as museum, churches, statues, etc, but the most important things to me when I travel are to get to know a place and its culture, to cycle with my bicycle everywhere, to get in touch with nature and to get to know amazing people and their culture/traditions everywhere I go.
Well...most of my time i spend studying, but I can find many ways to enjoy my life. Here are some things that i just LOVE to do:- Go out and have some fun!!! And i have to say: I am additec to bars, but I'm not alcoholic!!!! LOL- Listen all kind of stories that you wanna tell. I think it's awesome to get to know new cultures. (I consider myself a very talkative person... so be prepared!!!lol) - Get to know new places. If it's worth.. can be the other side of the street that it'll be fine. With a good company we can go wherever we want to.- Try to dance (even if i can't it will be worth trying, specially because I will laugh a lot).I really know how to have some fun and i dont like to have any regrets, thats why i try to do almost everything that doesnt bring me problems. If you think you can handle my craziness...be welcome to meet me :)Larissa Itho | Criar seu atalho
I have no time to anything else besides being happy!!!
