One Amazing Thing I've Done

...to have lived to see today. We forget to appreciate the simple/little things in life- and how beautiful people around us really are.

Oysh- too much to be grateful for: seen the fantabulous underwater world, snowboarded the Alps, trekked the Sacred Valley, spent 4 months in the Amazon (amaaazing!!), heard the echo of my own foosteps n voice within old Parisian cobblestone streets, wanderlost myself by the Thames River, trekked desert sands, worked a few international courier gigs, Brazilian beaches n sunsets, seen some amazing paintings and architecture, enjoyed a lot of laughs, soccer n sunshine with the united nations. (o:

in travel and life, i've met some truly inspiring and great people- friends/family/and even strangers- If you look hard- there are always WAYS to connect! THAT itself- IS just amaazing>> THE ADVENTURE aka LIFE.

Teach, Learn, Share

Always happy to teach you something I might know, but just as delighted to learn new things.

Ever eager to perfect my Spanish and Portuguese, and play better soccer...and infinitely ready & willing to share everything from my sandwich, a bottle of wine.. to my music collection, seat, two cents, and even a meal! It's brilliant how the value of everything is multiplied when shared- so let us break bread!
