About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Roam if you want to, roam around the world!!!

ABOUT ME

Just a guy who wants to share experiences and enjoy life as most as possible!!! I'm very simple and sometimes reserved, but once I get to know somebody I can get along really well! Guess I can also consider myself a trustworthy, friendly and hard-working guy. I love my friends and am always willing to help them whenever I can. Besides, I like being independent and having my own money to pay for my bills and stuff, but I also praise the importance of free time... after all, we gotta work in order to have fun and not the opposite, right? That's about it, I guess!
