About Me

ABOUT ME
I am from the north of Mexico originally, but at the moment I am living in Budapest.
I'm a person who enjoys traveling and meeting new places and people. I like music and going to shows and concerts. Spending time with friends, chill out and parties are things I enjoy as well. I usually don't describe myself but I'm a friendly easygoing person. The rest you'll know when you know me.

PHILOSOPHY

If you dont like your job, find a new one. If you want to travel, travel. If it all goes wrong and you end up broke, homeless, and living in a gutter, at least you tried and probably have a good story to tell.

I live. I find that often people talk of living and forget to do it. One day, I left home to live abroad and I realized how hungry my soul was for the world, knowledge, and experience. When I came home, my heart and eyes were open - the only thing keeping us from living, stepping out of our boxes, is ourselves. The possibilities are boundless.

Our experiences are a bigger part of ourselves than our material goods. You can really like your material stuff. You can even think that part of your identity is connected to those things, but nonetheless they remain separate from you. In contrast, your experiences really are part of you. "We are the sum total of our experiences.”

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Traveled from Los Angeles to the West and then back again to Los Angeles from the East in one around world trip in 22 months, the best experience of my Life.

Embarking on a journey around the world was the best decision of my life. Leaving Los Angeles, I headed westward, traversing continents, cultures, and landscapes over the course of 22 months. The experience was nothing short of transformative.

As I explored the West and then ventured across the East, every step brought me closer to a deeper understanding of the world and, more importantly, myself. The diversity of people, the richness of traditions, and the sheer beauty of different places left an indelible mark on my soul.

From iconic landmarks to hidden gems, from bustling cities to serene landscapes, each destination held its own unique charm. But it wasn't just about the places; it was about the people I encountered along the way. Their stories, perspectives, and the shared moments became the fabric of my journey.

The challenges I faced — navigating unfamiliar territories, overcoming language barriers, and embracing the unknown — were instrumental in my personal growth. I discovered a resilience within myself that I hadn't known before, and each obstacle turned into an opportunity for learning.

As I circled back to Los Angeles, I returned with more than just memories; I brought with me a broader worldview and a heart full of gratitude. The world, once a vast unknown, had become a tapestry of interconnected experiences.

Looking back,I carried with me more than just a passport full of stamps, I realize that the journey wasn't just about the physical distance covered; it was about breaking free from self-imposed limitations. The boundless possibilities I encountered mirrored the potential within myself. The trip around the world wasn't just an adventure — it was a celebration of life, a journey that will forever be etched in the core of my being.
