One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Once I crawled out of my mother's womb, I started getting amazed by pretty much anything.
Highlights would be:
// camping on the Andes with 20 other people;
// laying down at Salar de Uyuni staring at its infinite sky;
// watching the sunrise from a balloon ride in Luxor;
// seeing Brussels all covered in snow from the top of its highest building;
// getting a ride with a police guard in Bratislava;
// paragliding over the turquoise waters of a Turkish beach;
// chasing llamas in Machu Picchu;
// skydiving in São Paulo;
// playing with kids in the floating islands of Uros;
// dancing with strangers in the streets of Tokyo;
... I could go on forever.
Teach, Learn, Share
I seriously want to hear every story you have to tell me. I'm also a fan of random cultural knowledge. Hit me with some trivial facts, it'll make my day!
Can teach you how to:
- play the ukulele (as well as I do, so not very well)
- recite 28 different curse words in Portuguese
- dance terrible samba
- cook a mean Brazilian brigadeiro
- defy patriarchal norms ;)
