One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I moved to Taiwan for three months to learn some Mandarin Chinese, and I saved enough money to backpack trough China for 5 weeks in which I tried(!) to practice what I had learned. It was a great lesson to change some unconscious western-centrism.

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach: Curiosities of the Spanish language!
Learn: Anything about your culture! Everything is welcome.
Share: Lots of stories and hopefully some great experiences.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Some nice conversations, travelling tips, curious facts about amazing things no one cares.
