About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to visit all 7 continents before i die.

ABOUT ME

i was born in canada but i grew up in south america. and i miss it everyday.
i love meeting people from different places.
even more if you have an accent.
my most favorite thing to do is travel.
experience different cultures.
try new food, i love eating. especially street food.
and ice cream.
i have a bad sense of direction and tend to lose my maps often but that's alright, going off the beaten path is more fun.
and stumbling into hole in the wall spots, those are my favorite.
i love anything to do with water. especially scuba diving ! i can spend all day at sea.
i dream of being a sailor.
i want to learn at least two more languages.
i hate capitalizing my sentences, i think it's ugly.
just shows you how well i did in school, ha.
:)

PHILOSOPHY

twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
so throw off the bowlines.
sail away from the safe harbor.
catch the trade winds in your sails.
explore. dream. discover.
– mark twain

the brave may not live forever,
but the cautious do not live at all.

if you're not living on the edge,
you're taking up too much space.
