About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Who knows the next time life will allow you to take these adventures. Capitalizing on my youth and opportunities!

ABOUT ME

I love a new adventure and trying to see new places, experience new cultures, eat new foods, see the picturesque countryside and cities of the world, meeting new friends with the similar interests as me. I'm never one to say no to anything. I embrace challenge. When I travel, I travel as inexpensively as I can. I don't believe that jus because you're traveling means you need to spend big money on things like hotels. Whats the point after all the only time you are going to be there (unless you are with your girlfriend or boyfriend) is to sleep. I reach out to anyone who reaches out to me. I help everyone I can with what I know. I'm ready to see the world. I finally have the chance and occupation that allows me to.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe simply that we only have this one life to live. Thus, to me, there are no excuses to keep one from chasing after what they really want.

Interests

Outdoors, Sports, Walking through the city or sitting and people watching, talking to strangers, admiring architecture, indulging in local gastronomy, live music, festivals, the ocean, riding bikes, learning languages, fishing, reading. There is really too much to list. To simply put it, I'm contented to remain open to almost all things. I present equal opportunity to all experiences.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I can remember the day I was leaving to live in France, The day could not have been worse. My plane was 5 hours behind schedule, I had no internet to contact the person who was going to be waiting for me in France. I missed my train and had to pay for another train. I knew that when I would arrive in France there would be no one waiting for me, in a new country that I have never been to before, carrying everything I own and no free hands. Landing in Paris, I was a miserable sight. I tried to fit all my things through the metal bars to ascend the escalator, my bags were constantly falling, I was wearing my jacket to free up my hands a little bit but in return this was making me sweat madly. I wasn't quite sure where to go. By chance, I found the train station. The ticket line was full of those who were on my plane because they missed there trains too! The line was long and the last train to Rennes left in 20 Minutes. I was able to get my ticket and get to the platform as the train was leaving. I struggled to get all my stuff on board. I had help from one of the train men. I rode the train for hours and we finally arrived in Rennes. No one was there to pick me up and I had no phone or internet. I luckily had the address of the place and got a taxi to go where I needed to be. But, What left me awestruck that day was as I ascended the station to the city I saw the brilliant city of Rennes emerge. It was the Silver lining in a very sour day. I remember pausing and being so impressed. It still is so strongly engraved in my memory
