About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To share travel stories and find commonality!

ABOUT ME

Easy-going and very considerate. I have many brothers and sisters.

PHILOSOPHY

Whenever I have trouble deciding if I should do something, I think of myself on my deathbed and ask myself what I would regret most, and then suddenly everything becomes quite clear to me =)
